Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed on Tuesday, assured that the state government will provide maximum security to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members posted to the state.

He made the promise in Bauchi on Tuesday, during the swearing-in ceremony of the 2022 Batch B stream II corps members at the state Orientation Camp in Ganjuwa local government area of the state.

Represented by his Deputy, Baba Tela, the Governor said Bauchi state had always been hospitable and accommodating to outsiders, saying that a lot of corps members have settled down in the state after their service year.

“My dear corps members, I assure you of your safety and comfort in Bauchi State as God Almighty has been peacefully sustaining the Government and all inhabitants of the state.

“Therefore, feel free to serve your fatherland here and contribute your quota to the growth of the state,” said the governor.

He further said as leaders of tomorrow, the corps members must be knowledgeable in all aspects of national life.

Bala said to achieve this, the orientation programme was carefully fashioned to bring them in close contact with their fellow compatriots from different parts of the country and expose them to the culture and traditions of their host communities of service.

This, he said would strengthen and boost their innate sense of patriotism which would translate to higher quality future leadership that would place Nigeria on a higher pedestal among the comity of nations.

He also assured the management of the scheme that the ongoing repairs, reconstruction and rehabilitation of camp structures and facilities that were destroyed by rain storms would be completed before the conclusion of the orientation course to create a perfect enabling atmosphere for the success of the programme.

Earlier, the Director General of NYSC, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Fadah reminded the corps members that the oath of allegiance taken was significant, as it is expected to guide their conduct in the service year as well as have an everlasting influence on their lives after service.

Represented by the state coordinator of the scheme, Namadi Abubakar, the DG enjoined corps members to familiarize themselves with the provisions of the NYSC Act and the NYSC Bye-Laws.
