Boko Haram: NYSC Returns To Gombe State Two Years After

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.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the 1,706 batch ‘A’ Corps members deployed to the state are to undergo the exercise in a temporary orientation camp in Amada, Akko Local Government Area, pending the clearing of the permanent camp in Malamsidi town of Kwami Local Government Area.

Gombe State Coordinator of NYSC, Malam Ahmed Ikada, while speaking at the inaugural ceremony today commended the State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo for his timely intervention that saw the resumption of orientation camp in the state. He then appealed to the governor to assist the corps members with stipends to add to their monthly allowance.
