The Nigerian National Assembly has showered praises on the Governor of Enugu State, Peter Mbah for the efforts of his administration in empowering and equipping youths with requisite skills to enhance their financial base.
The commendation was made by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Youth, Sports and Community Engagement, Senator Adeyemi Adaramodu, when the committee visited the governor at the Government House in Enugu yesterday.
The members, who informed the governor that they were on inspection of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) facilities in the state, asked him for more intervention in other areas such as funding and re-equipment of the NYSC permanent orientation camp at Agwu Local Government.
Adaramodu extolled Mbah for the state government’s intervention in some of the pressing needs of the NYSC and provision of security for corps members.
He said the committee had taken note of the good work the governor was doing not only for NYSC, but also his engagement of youths in governance and training them in modern skills that would empower them.
Mbah said his administration had made some significant interventions at the NYSC permanent orientation camp in terms of improving and upgrading the facilities, adding that his government would support the scheme in other areas despite the lean resources at its disposal.
The governor, represented by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof. Chidiebere Onyia, said his administration had undertaken the re-roofing and other renovation of the NYSC permanent campground.
