The Executive Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has assured that his administration would continue to ensure safety, adequate security and boost welfare of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members, posted to the state.
Ganduje gave the assurance on Monday while declaring the 2019 Batch ‘B’ stream II Orientation Exercise for corps members which was held at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Kusalla, Karaye LGA.
“Our government will continue to ensure adequate security in the state and live up to our statutory responsibilities to NYSC through enhanced welfare provision, safety and security of Corps Members wherever they may be posted,” the Gov stated.
The Governor, who was represented by his Deputy, Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, disclosed that the ongoing reforms in youth policies were targeted on growth and development, which are meant to uplift the standard of living of its citizenry.
Ganduje expressed confidence that the experiences acquired by the corps members would be shared to improve the living conditions of their host communities for hopeful life in health care service delivery, agriculture, education, immunization and safety campaign.
He, however, urged the corps members to interact and understand the culture of their host communities and other aspects of their life, which according to him, would be used to uphold peace, unity and development in Kano State and the country at large.
