The Kwara State Government, on Thursday, delivered four hundred new mattresses, two hundred double trunk beds, ninety wooden benches and several consumable drugs to the Yikpata Camp of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), in a concrete step to make the camp livable for the graduates deployed for the national service.
This comes just a few weeks after Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq paid an unscheduled visit to the camp in Edu Local Government Area of the state, calling it a ‘penitentiary that is not fit for human living’ and pledging to urgently rehabilitate the camp to make the users more comfortable.

The governor, who visited the camp on June 19, had also apologised to the NYSC members and said the condition at the camp represented the general breakdown of basic infrastructure in the state, saying the visit to the camp was a challenge for him to make things better.
Akanbi AbdulQuadry Shuaib, Permanent Secretary Ministry, Sports and Youths Development, who represented the governor at the official handing over of the materials, said the development underscored the governor’s commitment to the welfare of people.
Akanbi explained that the provision of the items would make the camp more comfortable for the occupants, calling on the NYSC members to consider the gesture as an incentive to be more patriotic.
“Our amiable governor is a man of his words. What we are seeing here today is a fulfilment of pledges made just over a month ago. We are, therefore, celebrating a harvest from the governor that has the concern of the people in his heart,” Akanbi said.
