Governor Lucky Orimisan  Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State has approved monthly stipends for National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members deployed to serve in the State.

Aiyedatiwa disclosed the development at the swearing-in-ceremony of the 2024 Batch ‘B’ (Stream 1) of Corps members at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Ikare Akoko, on Tuesday.

The Governor also promised to take the orientation camp through rehabilitation including the provision of solar-powered lights.

In address, he charged the new corps members to dedicate themselves and brace up for the task ahead as they will be exposed to daunting but fulfilling challenges of national development while serving in the State.

He said his administration was ready to adequately cater for their welfare and security throughout their service year in the State.

“As we therefore induct you into the national service of our dear Country today, you face a greater challenge to prove that the future of our Country and coming generations would be secured in your hands. This is why you must rededicate yourselves to the task of bringing about positive changes in your various assignments”, the governor said.

According to him, his administration will continue to support NYSC at all times to ensure Corp members have a memorable year in Ondo State.

He added “The area is clean, disinfectant the bathroom and toilet but they are old, some kind of renovation needs to be done and that is what we are going to do. Electricity is also one of their problems and we will try to deploy solar light across the entire camp so that at night the area can be bright and for the hostels, we will see what we can do.”

The NYSC State Coordinator, Samuel Pepple, thanked the governor for his presence at the event, saying that it is the first time a governor will visit the orientation camp in the last 13 years.

He disclosed that a total of 1,423 corps members have deployed to the State currently participating in the orientation camp in preparation for their mandatory one-year service.
