He charged the young Nigerians to make the best use of the opportunity by contributing positively to the development of their host communities.

The Governor urged them to maintain decorum in camp and participate in all activities at the orientation programme, assuring that government would provide an enabling environment for the success of the programme. He also promised that government would ensure the safety and welfare of the corps members.

In his remarks, Chairman of the State NYSC Governing Board who is also the Commissioner for Youths and Sports, Mr. Kayode Olaosebikan said that the camp would expose the corps members to a number of skills acquisition programmes, physical training and paramilitary exercises, stressing the need for them to handle the activities with all the deserved seriousness.
