” It is a very sad moment and a black Wednesday, well we canโ€™t question God when things like this happen, itโ€™s God that knows everything and Heโ€™s in control of everything but our heartfelt condolences will always and ever go out to the parents and the families of those corps members.

The Governor thanked the DG, NYSC, Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim for his prompt reaction to the incidence and condolence visit to the state and families of the Corps members, describing him as a good shepherd who has demonstrated love and concern over the wellbeing of the Corps members in the Country.

In his remarks, Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Brig. Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim described the incident as a sad moment for NYSC community and the affected families , praying God to console Akwa Ibom State and the families who lost their wards on their way to the Camp.

On behalf of the NYSC management and Corps members please accept our heartfelt condolences”.
