Speaking during a courtesy visit by the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim at the Government House Port Harcourt on Monday, Wike noted that it is the responsibility of his administration to take care of the welfare of Corps members.
“The corps members posted here serve our state. So, it is our responsibility to take care of their welfare. They are working for the benefit of Rivers State,” he said.
“We should try and discourage the idea that you must serve in your state. That is the essence of the NYSC Scheme.”
Governor Wike said that the Rivers State Government is still willing to assist the family of Late Corps Member killed during the rerun elections.
The NYSC Director General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim thanked the Rivers State Governor for his outstanding contribution to the development of facilities at the permanent Orientation Camp of NYSC.
He described Governor Wike as an NYSC friendly Governor who has encouraged Corps Members to give their best.
“I thank you most sincerely. Others are watching. I encourage them to emulate the Rivers State Governor,” he said.
