Rochas Okorocha Allocates Lands To Corpers; Tells Them To Farm

Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has directed caretaker committee chairmen in the 27 local government areas to allocate land to 1,545 corps members deployed to the state to enhance agricultural production.
nysc-passing-out-ceremony-in-josOkorocha gave the directive at the opening of orientation for the 2016 Batch ‘B’ corps members posted to the state.

He said this was in line with the state’s determination to identify with the laudable agricultural policy of the federal government to tackle the nation’s problem of food insufficiency.

Represented by Eze Madumere, his deputy, the governor advised the corps members to pay serious attention to all programmes lined up for them during the orientation.

While congratulating them for their achievements, he urged them to discharge their duties diligently in their various places of assignment.
He said:

“I welcome you to Imo hospitality. Pay attention to the programmes lined up for the orientation. Interact with one another and people of the community which is the beauty and essence of the NYSC,”

Isaac Fasanu, state coordinator of NYSC, said 1,545 corps members comprising 855 males and 690 females were posted to Imo.

He expressed appreciation to the government for the numerous supports given to the scheme and for approving the construction of two additional hostels in the camp.

He also thanked the governor for the donation of a vehicle and appealed to him to continue supporting the scheme by complementing efforts in feeding and other logistics.

Fasanu urged the corps members to be law-abiding.

He said the programme would instill discipline, positive attitude, skills and broad world view in them and reposition them to stand on their own.

The NYSC state coordinator said the scheme would also equip the corps members with leadership qualities and prepare them mentally and physically to face future challenges.

The highlight of the programme was the oath taking by the corps members, administered by the representative of the chief judge of Imo, Theresa Chikeka.
