Niger prioritises NYSC permanent camp building
Gov. Abubakar Bello of Niger on Sunday said the state government was working on building a permanent site of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) to provide befitting accommodation for corps members.
He disclosed this while on campaign rally to the palace of Alhaji Muhammadu Mustapha, District Head of Paiko.
Bello explained that though the project was capital intensive and beyond the resources of the state, efforts were being made to ensure that corps members posted to the state were comfortable.
He said that his administration had executed 31 projects in the area, adding that his re-election would enable him complete the ongoing projects.
He called on the people to come out emass and vote President Muhammadu Buhari for second term so as to enable him continue with his anti-corruption war as well as vote him as governor.
“I appeal to you as the district head and other village heads to mobile your women and youths to come out to vote and return APC to power in 2019. I advise you to vote peacefully during the election,” he said.
The governor gave the assurance to construct some township roads in Paiko and ensure adequate water supply in the area.
Responding, the District Head of Paiko, assured the governor of supporting the re-election bid of APC candidates and appealed to the governor to hasten construction of Paiko township roads.
He commended the government for upgrading and renovation of the community hospital to a General Hospital and appealed to the governor to build a permanent site for NYSC.
“Immediate building of NYSC permanent site will evacuate corps members from the secondary school hosting them,” he said.
