The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation exercise has resumed in Gombe state after two years of suspension as a result of security challenges occasioned by the threat of insurgents.

One-thousand-seven-hundred-and-six corps members participated in the batch ‘A’ 2016 orientation programme at a temporary camp in Amada, Akko local government area (LGA) of the state.

Declaring the camp open, Ibrahim Dankwambo, governor of the state, assured the corps members that the government was committed to ensuring their security.

He also commended the host community for providing vigilantes that would collaborate with security personnel to ensure security within and outside the camp.

Ahmed Ikada, state coordinator of NYSC in Gombe, commended Dankwambo for his timely intervention that saw the resumption of orientation camp in the state.

He also appealed to the governor to assist the corps members with stipends to add to their monthly allowance.

In his remarks, Mahmud Baba, acting head of service and chairman, NYSC governing board, urged the corps members to put in to practice, the skills acquired during their training.
