Cross River State Governor, Prof Ben Ayade, has called on members of the National Youth Service Corps ( NYSC ) posted to the state to participate in this year’s edition of the famous Carnival Calabar which comes up in December.
Addressing the 2018 Batch B, Stream 2 corps members during their swearing in ceremony at the permanent orientation camp in Obubra Local Government Area, Ayade said they came at a time when preparations for the carnival are in top gear.
Ayade who was represented by the Director, General Services and Administration, Obubra Local Government Council, Mr. Richard Okpa, said the government was working tirelessly to ensure that the safety of corps members is guaranteed.
He urged them to see their time in the state as an opportunity to contribute to the development of the state and country.
“While you continue to render selfless services to the state, my administration will continue to expand welfare windows for your comfort,” Ayade said.
State Coordinator of the NYSC in the state, Ambekemo Eniola, lauded the prospective Corps members for successful graduation and mobilization for national service.
She said as soon as the swearing in ceremony is over, the Corps members would be coopted to belong to different Camp Committees to enable them learn leadership skills, adopt Entrepreneurship spirit amongst others.
She hoped that as the orientation course progresses, there would not be any cause to sanction the corps members for negative actions for any reasons whatsoever.
She expressed gratitude to all who made the exercise a success.
