The Governor who was represented by the chairman NYSC governing board in Yobe state, Zanna Zakariya gave the commendation at the opening ceremony of orientation course of corps members deployed to the state for 2015 batch B service year held at the adult and non formal education Institute, Kangere in Bauchi State.
He said “I am compelled to commend you for accepting your deployment in the State in good faith at this time that undesirable elements are working hard to sabotage the efforts of government and security agents”
Geidam also commended the initiative of the DG of NYSC Brig- General Jonhson Olawumi for reinforcing skills acquisition and entrepreneurial development training programme at the orientation camp.
