In a message to the swearing in ceremony of the Corps members at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp Awgu, the State Governor, Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi explained that the corps members would be trained as electoral officers.
The Governor who was represented by his Special Adviser on Special Duties, Mr. Uwakwe Azikiwe admonished them to use the knowledge gained during the training at the appropriate time to advance the nation’s democracy.
