Dare said the completion of the new Orientation Camp was another clear testimony of the Governor’s passion for the progress of the Nigerian youths, who were being trained and mentored for citizenship and leadership roles on the platform of NYSC.

The Minister, who was represented at the ceremony by the NYSC Director General, Brigadier General YD Ahmed said the Governor’s administration had produced lots of people-oriented policies and programmes which had resulted into dividends of democracy.

He stated further that the facilities at the Orientation Camp would not only ensure the smooth conduct of Orientation Courses but also serve as morale booster to Corps Members including the Camp officials.

“I assure you that we shall continue to reciprocate the gesture through the deployment of Corps Members that would contribute to the development of their host communities and the State in general”, Dare said.

Speaking further, he appealed to other State Governors to upgrade the facilities in their respective Orientation Camps to accommodate at least five thousand Corps Members.

Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Duoye Diri in his remarks directed that two new additional hostels be constructed at the Orientation Camp, one for male and another for female Corps Members.

He said this would provide a friendly accommodation for successive batches of Corps Members that would be deployed to the State.

The Governor also directed that each Corps Member be paid Ten Thousand Naira as transport allowance from Camp to their respective Places of Primary Assignment.

“We will continue to partner with Federal agencies for the overall development of our State and the country”, the Governor said.
