We would all recall that sometimes in 2018, the immediate past Senate President Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki visited the NYSC camp, Yikpata to condole with the corp members, and the staff of the NYSC on the lost of a female corp member who died after a brief illness and due to standard of health facility in the camp.
As a part of his address, Dr. Saraki promised the management of the NYSC to assist in improving the standard of facilities for corp members accommodation (Hostels), the NYSC camp kitchen and the Health facilities (Camp clinic).
Few weeks after the visit, Dr. Saraki held a meeting with the NYSC state coordinator where fund was released for the rehabilitation of the camp hostels, in form of direct labor approach and to improve the accommodation status in the camp. Report from the NYSC coordinator shows that some corp members hostels have been renovated and put in good shape.
In furtherance to the rehabilitation of the hostels in the camp, Dr. Saraki captured in 2018 budget construction of the under listed as a part of his efforts to address the identified infrastructure deficiencies and to improve standard of living of the corp members in the camp.
The infrastructure include:
- Construction of Modern Clinic with equipment in the Camp.
Construction of Hostel Accommodation
Construction of Kitchen and Dining facilities.
Provision of Solar powered streetlights across the NYSC camp.
It is a testimony today that works have already commenced and ongoing at the Yikpata NYSC camp and have gotten to appreciable percentage level of completion as at today 19th June 2019. Very many of the entourages who were in the company of His Excellency, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazak, the Executive Governor of Kwara state during his visit to the NYSC camp today confirmed their witness of the ongoing construction works in the camp.
While it is clear that government is continuous and there are always need to improve upon existing infrastructure standards of every community of people, it is in the interest of the Project Unit of the Constituency office of Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, the immediate past Senate President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to inform the people of Kwara State, the efforts of Dr. Saraki in ensuring that standard of the living is improved in the NYSC camp, Yikpata, Kwara State.
