NYSC: A symbol of Unity Holding the Country Together

promised to continue with the tempo of development in the Sunshine State

Mr. Emmanuel Attah, Director of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Southwest Region Office, described the NYSC as one of the symbols of unity that keeps the country together as an indivisible entity.

On Thursday, the director made the remark during an unscheduled official visit to the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Ikare-Akoko, Ondo State.

Attah praised the current NYSC Ondo State Coordinator, Mrs Victoria Ani, for her organizational skills, describing her as an outstanding protocol officer.

“I am quite impressed with what I saw especially the requirements put in place to observe the Coronavirus protocol.

“Not only that, the camp environment is neat and well kept and this shows that the state coordinator and her team have done what they needed to do.

“I have no doubt that the assessment of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) will be in tandem with my honest observation,”
he said.

The director expressed hope that the new state coordinator would finish the clinic that had been started by the previous state coordinator, Mrs Grace Akpabio, and put it to use as soon as possible.

Attah worked with the corps medical staff at the operating Camp Clinic.

“The Director-General of NYSC has said all that was needed to be said during his virtual meeting monitored across NYSC camps nationwide.

“However, my advice to you is to link up with your state coordinator, who is, fortunately, a tested and trusted protocol officer to give you the details of the D-G’s message peradventure you did not capture everything.

“Your state coordinator is a meticulous and highly cerebral officer who pays attention to every minute detail.

“I can beat my chest that you will not be disappointed when you request for such information from her,”
he said.

Part of the reason Attah came as a Chief Host to all corps members deployed to the Southwest Geopolitical Zone was to greet the new coordinator, he said.

Mrs Victoria Ani, the state coordinator, praised the NYSC director of the Southwest Area Office for always going above and beyond to ensure that corps members' welfare in the region was a top priority.

She expressed appreciation for his unexpected visit and vowed to keep up the rate of growth in the Sunshine State.
