Wife of Ondo State Governor, Mrs. Betty Akeredolu, has called for a legislative backing to strengthen the safety and security of corps members at various locations in the country.

She also called for an upward review of their monthly allowance.



She stated this on Monday in Akure, the Ondo State capital,  while speaking with journalists.

Akeredolu, who described the National Youth Service Corps as a national integration tool, said there was a  need to urgently address the challenges facing the scheme, so as to keep it in line with the present day reality.

While imploring the corps members in the state to be more patriotic, Akeredolu said the NYSC period was one for the youths  to give back to the nation and a time for sacrifice.

She urged the host communities to recognise and appreciate the impact of the scheme on the society.


She said, “There is a need to re-evaluate this scheme and ascertain what needs to be done to forestall corps members becoming victims of circumstances and ugly incidents. State governments should be made to sign undertakings for the security of lives of the corps members, while those sabotaging their safety should be sanctioned, so as not to compromise their welfare and safety.”

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
