“The state government will continue to perform its role of giving each and everyone you the needed environment to serve the country.

“We are consciously taking necessary steps to ensure that your lives are protected against all forms of molestation and abuse from any individual or group,” Eno said.

Earlier, the State NYSC Coordinator, Mr Christopher Okun, said that a total of 1,576 corp members were deployed to the state comprising of 579 male and 997 female.

Okun commended the corp members for demonstrating a high sense of discipline, dedication and willingness to learn during the orientation course.

“You showed great enthusiasm and satisfactorily responded to the regiments of the camp. I consider this as an initial evidence of your determination to succeed,” he said.

Okun appealed to both the Akwa Ibom and the Federal Government to assist in connecting the camp to the national grid to ensure steady power supply. (NAN)
