Gov. Dave Umahi

This was made known by the governor, Dave Umahi, during the swearing-in of 2016 Batch A, Stream 2, corps members at the NTSC Orientation Camp in Afikpo Local Government Area.

Despite the adverse economic situation in the country, the governor said Ebonyi would turn the potential jobseekers to job creators.

Mr. Umahi was represented at the swearing-in ceremony by the state Commissioner for Youth Development and Sport, Charles Chukwuemeka.

The governor, who lauded the vision of the scheme, however, maintained that his administration would ensure that the gains of NYSC were sustained.


“This administration will always place it on its priority list to sustain these gains despite the economic challenges,” the governor explained.

“Let me assure you that my administration will always attach great importance to efforts geared towards sustaining the gains of the NYSC scheme.”

During the past one year, he said his administration has created a platform to harness the potentials of youth to become job creators.

According to him, the initiative was already yielding tangible results as many youth in the state have ventured into various businesses especially, agriculture.

“My administration totally agrees with the thinking of the NYSC management especially in the area of entrepreneurship,” Mr. Umahi continued.

“That is the reason we have, as a government in the last one year, under the ” Devine Mandate ” committed ourselves to the welfare and wellbeing of the youth.”

He assured that the government would create an enabling environment for youth to thrive and harness their God-given potentials through good governance.
