Obiano Denies Anambra Corpers Were Moved To Enugu & Imo
The Governor Willie Obiano-led Anambra State Government has denied the report that the National Youth Service Corps [NYSC] members posted to Anambra State were moved to Enugu and Imo states respectively.
According to the report, the Youth Corpers were moved for their Orientation Courses because of “lack of facilities”.
See attached pictures of the publication and the official memo from the office of the Corps Commandant:
Reacting, however, Governor Obiano, through his Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Mr. Obika Chidiebele, refuted the report.
According to Mr. Chidiebele, “Anambra was not originally approved by the Commission to host the 2018 Batch C, stream II Corps members for reasons best known to it.”
The statement reads in full:
Earlier today, a PDP apologist, Anthony Advantage Okafor in his bid to paint the image of the Anambra State Government bad, posted on some platforms in the social media about NYSC corps members posted to Anambra State which were moved to Enugu and Imo states respectively for their Orientation Courses because of “lack of facilities”.
We wish to state as follows:
- That the information is false and targeted at misleading the general public.
- That Anambra was not originally approved by the Commission to host the 2018 Batch C, stream II Corps members for reasons best known to it.
- That Anambra in the time past hosted Corps members from Enugu state
Furthermore, the information available to us has it that the National Youth Service Corps Commandant approved only 25 states and FCT for the 2018 Batch C, stream II Orientation Courses of which Anambra is not among.
We implore ndi Anambra to ignore these enemies of the state as the government of Chief Willie Obiano is undeterred in delivering the Anambra of our dreams.
