Edo Charges Corps Members To Support Fight Against Human Trafficking

National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members in Edo State have been charged to support the state government’s current war against human trafficking.

Governor Godwin Obaseki, who gave the charge while swearing in the 2017 Batch ‘B’ Stream I at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Okada, Ovia North East Local Government Area of the state, said his government’s current move to stem the ugly tide of human trafficking would be taken to a logical conclusion.

Obaseki said: “As good ambassadors of the scheme, I also expect you to be involved in the fight against economic crimes, women and child trafficking, drug trafficking and other vices.”

Represented by Mika Amanokha, the Commissioner for Youths and Special Duties, the governor said his administration was delighted in identifying with the scheme in the state, sequel to its numerous developmental contributions.

He added that the government would continue to support the scheme in achieving its laudable objectives.

While asking the corps members to reciprocate the gesture by joining hands with his government in its developmental stride that is on course, the governor also reminded them the essence of the NYSC, which was designed for national unity and integration.

It will also assist in ensuring even spread of the much-needed professional manpower in the country through the mobilisation and deployment of young graduates to states other than their states of origin, he added.

Abdullahi Baba, state coordinator of the scheme, thanked the governor for his immense contributions to the development of the scheme and assured him of the NYSC active partnership with his government in delivering the dividend of democracy to the doorsteps of the people of the state.

Baba, while commending the governor for his developmental strides in the state, reminded him of his promise to complete the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp at Okada and the speedy renovation of the Oredo Zonal Office in Benin City, which he said would help solve the problems of accommodation faced by corps members during the three-week orientation programme while on camp.
