National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Anambra has expressed worry over the erosion menace ravaging its permanent orientation camp in Umuawulu/Mbaukwu, Awka South Local Government Area.

The state coordinator, Blessing Iruma, raised the alarm at Tuesday’s swearing-in ceremony of 2022 Batch B, stream one orientation course.

She appealed to Governor Chukwuma Soludo to rescue the camp by completing the remaining project parts, including landscaping the premises.

“I wish to remind the governor of the need to address the erosion menace inside the orientation playground.

“Different portions of the camp are already ravaged by the erosion and, if not checked early, might threaten the existing structures and destroy the beauty of the camp that has attracted the admiration of all.”

Nonetheless, she said the scheme was taking proactive measures to address the menace while it awaits the government.

The coordinator congratulated the corps members for their successful graduation and mobilisation while assuring them of a pleasant stay and safety in Anambra.

“The state government has also assured of priority attention to various concerns of corps members. Besides, the synergy we have with security agencies is robust and encouraging,” she said.

Seven hundred and ninety-one males and 1,029 females were sworn in for the service year in Anambra.
