The Kwara State government has reiterated its resolve to ensure that no stone is left unturned in its intent to make the atmosphere in Kwara State favourable and conducive for Corps members posted to the State. 

This was stated by the Commissioner for Youth Development, Hon. Jamila Adamu Bake when the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) State Coordinator, Mrs Francesca Olaleye and her management team paid a courtesy call to her office.

While addressing the team, the Commissioner attributed the improvement in the welfare of Corps members to the commitment and dedication of Governor AbdulRahaman AbdulRazaq to the affairs of Youth.

She noted that this commitment has led to the development and great improvement at the Kwara State NYSC orientation camp Yikpata, thereby providing befitting accommodation for Corps members and also ensuring their safety among others things.

The Commissioner stressed that the negative reports in respect of the orientation camp that had scared a lot of prospective corps members from serving in the state is now a thing of the past, thanks to Governor AbdulRahaman AbdulRazaq for his timely  intervention. 

She thereafter applauded the Governor for making the environment conducive for Indigenes and non-indigenes corps members. 

In her remarks, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Barr. (Mrs) Iyabo Funke Banire,  emphasized the Ministry's dedication to the development of Youth.

She appreciated the NYSC for its contributions to the development of the state through its various programs and also the various skill acquisition programs taught to corps members, as it will go a long way in assisting and setting them up after NYSC, she urged them not to relent as the knowledge gathered by the corps members will help in shaping their lives.

Banire thanked the Governor of the State for his magnimity towards NYSC and the Youth as a whole, she added that His Excellency does not take the affairs of the Youth and NYSC with levity, hence, the constant renovations being made to the orientation camp.

The NYSC State Coordinator, Mrs Francesca Olaleye, earlier in her address, had appreciated the Governor for the dexterity he shows when it comes to handling anything that has to do with corps members, she explained that Governor AbdulRahaman AbdulRazaq is always available when called upon, especially when it pertains to Youth matters. 

Mrs Olaleye further disclosed that the NYSC passing out parade for this year will be a joint ceremonial affair to be held in the state capital, as against the last couple of years when the celebration took place various local government areas of the state due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
