He advise them to avoid anything that would tarnish their own image because the destiny of the nation lies on them.

On relocation he stressed that ” I want to ask you all to resist the temptation of redeploying to another state because of the enormous opportunities abound here for you.”

Bereaved Governor Zulum who was represented by the head of service Barrister Mallam Fannami called on the Corp members to be responsible and dedicated to the Corp.

While calling on all of them to be responsible to their duties, he declared the orientation camp open.

Highlight of the occasion was the donation of 100kg of 50kg rice, 100 bags of 10kg beans, 15 jerirrans of oil, and 10 bulls as his support for the Corp members for their one month stay in the camp.

Speaking during their visit to the NYSC temporary orientation camp in Maiduguri, the Coordinator of Internal Diaspora Borno State Chapter, Chief Emmanuel Ugochukwu Egwudike (Go-Easy) , who led the leadership of the various non-indigenous tribes in the state to the camp, said their visit is part of their continuous effort and support to the state government, most importantly towards restoration of peace, hope, dignity, stability, and to boost the confidence of the newly arrived corps members.

Chief Egwudike assured the corps members that his members will do everything to give them maximum support and ensure that the service to their fatherland in the state ends remarkably well.

The Coordinator informed the corps members that the state government, under the leadership of Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, holds non-indigenes in the state in high esteem; hence, every December 25th, the Governor provides free transport to everyone who wishes to travel home to celebrate Christmas and the new year with loved ones.

We are here to welcome you as our brothers and sisters. Most of us have spent over 30 years in the state, and the majority of our successes and breakthroughs in life came from here. Our assurance to you is that you will never regret your decision to serve here.

The Governor has already given you a warm reception with gifts, and he has demonstrated that he is a detribalized Nigerian by assuring you of engagement in the services of the state. We are assuring you that many good things will come your way in the course of your stay in the state,” Egwudike said.

Further encouraging the corps members, the General Secretary of Internal Diasporans, Mr. Olusegun Asiwaju Alabi, who is from Oyo State, urged the corps members to see their postings to the state as a divine call destined by God.

He assured that the leadership of the association will, from time to time, visit the corps members to ensure their wellbeing and good condition of service.

The President of the Imo State Welfare Association, Chief Francis Meke, assured the corps members that none of them would regret their service in the state, noting that Borno, which is known as the home of peace, has raised many prominent Nigerians from other parts of the country.

In a similar vein, Chief Abraham Kanti, the President General of the TIV community in Borno State and an entrepreneur, urged the corps members to key into entrepreneurship, where opportunity abounds in the state, while Chief John Azimeye, the President General of the Niger-Delta community in the state, urged the corps members to take fear out of their minds and embrace the service.

Responding, Obani Prince Azubuike, the Ezendigbo of the Orientation Camp and a graduate of transport management technology at the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO), said before coming to the state, he heard different negative stories, but on arrival at the camp, the reverse was the case.

He commended the state governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, for his benevolence to the corps members and the warm reception he gave them, and he promised to finish his service in the state.
