The SSG who also doubles as the Chairman of the NYSC Governing Board, said that the importance of the Scheme cannot be overemphasized, as it has unified every part of the country through cultural integration of the participants of the scheme which was the original idea of the founding Fathers of the programme.
Mr. Ebie assured the NYSC Management that the State Government would ensure that Corps members posted to the State to serve would be well catered for, even as he said the State Government had provided a lot of facilities for the NYSC Area office in the South- South Zone located in Asaba and also at the NYSC Orientation camp in Issele-uku.
