Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, yesterday, lamented that huge debts and liabilities hand down to his administration by successive governments in the state are hindering government’s efforts in providing the much-needed facilities in the state.
Obaseki stated this while receiving the chairman of the Governing Board of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Fatima Balla Abubakar and members of the board who paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House.
The governor who pledged a utility vehicle and a power generating set to the agency to make life easier for the corps members, disclosed that records show that the fund appropriated for the development of the orientation camp, during its relocation from Abudu, in Orhionmwon local government area to Okada, in Ovia North East local government area was not utilised for the project.
He lamented that the facilities at the orientation camp are in bad shape, noting that if the fund appropriated were utilised, the story would have been different today.
He however pledged to support the NYSC and assured that plans are in top gear to revamp the orientation camp to better serve graduates participating in the national youth service scheme in the state.
