A member representing Isin/Ekiti/Irepodun and Oke-Ero federal constituency, Alhaji Tunji Olawuyi, has pledged support for the National Youth Service Corps camp in Yikpata in Edu local area of Kwara.
Olawuyi made the pledge when he visited the camp to commend the Corps members for the role they played in the bye-election that brought him into power on Sat. Nov. 19.
“You have demonstrated that things will get better in this country because you have shown that you cannot be manipulated.
“You discharged your duty diligently and with all honesty, that is the reason the election was free and fair.
“I want to thank you and urge you all to continue to live in this spirit because the nation needs people like you to uplift it” Olawuyi said.
Earlier in her address, the NYSC Kwara Coordinator, Mrs Esther Ikupolati, enumerated some of the challenges facing the camp and the scheme in the state.
She urged him to contribute his quota to the development of the camp by providing necessary assistance to the scheme.
Responding, Olawuyi promised to look into some of the challenges facing the camp and said he will present on the floor of the house as a matter of urgency what will upgrade the living standard of Corps members at the camp.
The House of Representatives member later presented a cow, rice and some cooking ingredients to the Corps members for their get-together.
