Owerri – Governor Emeka Ihedioha of Imo State has enjoined operators of the NYSC scheme in the state to help develop rural agricultural development to strengthen the quest of his administration to improve the conditions of living of the people.
He said that they could do this by establishing farm settlements in some selected local government areas to boost food production as well as create employment for the people.

The governor gave the charge when he officially closed the 21-day orientation course of the 2019 Batch ‘B’ Stream II Corps members deployed to serve in the state held at the NYSC Orientation camp, Eziama Obaire, Nkwere Council Area.
The governor, who spoke through the state commissioner for Youths and Social Development, Okechukwu Umez-Eronini, stressed the importance of agriculture to the nation’s economy and the need to diversify the latter.
He noted that the NYSC scheme has continued to live up to expectation in the state, noting that corps members have played role in the critical sectors of the economy.
Ihedioha, while urging the corps members to be focused, dedicated and committed to their service obligation, also pleaded with them to remember all that they learnt in the orientation camp and to put them into use, particularly in their places of primary assignment as well as in their host community so as to add value and contribute their quota to the Rebuild Imo Policy Initiative of his administration.
Chinedu John Eloeboh, the state coordinator of the NYSC, in an address earlier bemoaned the plight of corps members deployed to serve in the state arising from the nation’s excruciating economic realities.
