Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has lamented the condition of the state’s orientation camp for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members, describing it as a “penitentiary…that is not fit for human living”. He said the administration would do something quickly to rehabilitate the camp, beginning with fixing the water and health facilities.
“I apologise for the state of your living accommodation. After seeing them, it is like a penitentiary. It is not fit for human living,” AbdulRazaq said at the official opening and swearing in of the NYSC 2019 Batch ‘B’ (Stream 1) at Yikpata Orientation Camp in Edu Local Government Area.
The governor added: “The people in charge before should have done better. By saying that, I have thrown a challenge to myself and my administration to make things better.” He said he would look at the quick-fixes to make things easier for the corps members such as water and health facilities, adding others would be considered in the next fiscal years.
