Wike Tasks Corps Members On Commitment


The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike has charged corps members serving in the state to be committed and concentrate on the programmes of the scheme in order to abreast themselves with the leadership obligations that await them after their service year.
The state governor also urged them to be law-abiding and take all the instructions seriously and added that the exercise will introduce them to the various issues relating to good governance as well as national security among other.
The state Chief Executive stated this while speaking during the official opening and swearing in ceremony of the 2018 Batch B Stream I corps members deployed to the state at Nonwa-Gbam, Tai Local Government Area of the state.
Represented on the occasion by the Secretary to the State Government, Hon Kenneth Kobani, the governor stated that the skills gained from the camp would be required for the provision of legal services to the less privileged, sensitisation of public on fundamental human rights and enhancing educational standards of their host communities. Wike frowned at the attitude of hoodlums who vandalised the properties belonging to the NYSC in the camp and re-assured corps members in the state of their security as well as the commitment of the state government to enhance their welfare.
The state chief executive however, announced the donation of 100KIA generating power plant to boost power supply in the camp.
