Umunya (Oyi LGA), Aug. 31, 2018 (MOI) Anambra State Government has donated a multimillion naira new office complex to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Anambra State.

The state Coordinator, NYSC, Mr Kehinde Aremu made this known during the swearing in ceremony of the 2018 Batch 'B' (Stream II) Corps members at Umunya, Oyi Local Government Area (LGA).

Mr Aremu commended Anambra State governor, for the donation to the organisation, saying that space congestion challenge, occasioned by steady expansion of the scheme since 27 years of its existence was the reason for the relocation of the office.

``The community Town Hall, which housed the scheme since 1991, that the state was created was no longer accommodating us in view of the steady expansion of the administrative structure.

``We made a complaint to the governor and after seeing reason for a more befitting structure, graciously donated a building complex to us,’’ he added.

Aremu while lauding Gov. Willie Obiano for being among the state governors that had been faithful in payment of allowances of corps members said the magnanimity was a demonstration of his passion for the youths in the state.

He urged the Corps members to reciprocate the gesture through their commitment and selfless service to their host communities and to the state in general. (MOI)
