The Taraba state government has connected the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) camp in the state to the national electricity grid to enable the corps members undertake their orientation course comfortably.
Emmanuel Attah, state NYSC coordinator, said this at the swearing-in ceremony of the 2016 Batch B corps members.
Attah said the gesture would go a long way in alleviating the sufferings of corps members during the orientation course.
The coordinator urged the 2,707 corps members posted to the state to make judicious use of the skills acquisition training provided by the federal government.
He said the training would empower them to be employers of labour, instead of leaving service as job seekers.
Darius Ishaku, governor of the state, told the corps members that NYSC offered a lot of opportunities to them to attain greatness in life.
Represented by Haruna Manu, his deputy, Ishaku said the state was a peaceful place.
He urged them to support his efforts at promoting peaceful coexistence during the course and the entire service year.
