Equally speaking, the Chairman NYSC State Governing Board who doubles as the Hon Commissioner for Youth Development, Hon Patrick Agha Mba represented by Comrade Ken Okoli, enjoined the Corps Members to translate what they learnt during the orientation course into concrete action by bringing positive change in their Places of Primary Assignment.
In her address, the State Coordinator, NYSC, Anambra State, Mrs Blessing Ekene Iruma, pledged to assist government in the developmental programmes.
She also charged Corps employers to accept Corps Members posted to their organizations and regard them as permanent staff in order to enable them relax and work effectively and efficiently in the workplace, thereby contributing to high productivity.
