As part of activities marking its golden jubilee anniversary, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), will at the weekend honour Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State for his invaluable contributions to the growth of the scheme.

In a letter to the Governor,  nominating him for the award, the NYSC also said Imo State under Uzodimma’s watch is the most  friendly State of the scheme in the country.

The letter dated May 10, 2023, reads in part: “Arising from the foregoing and in recognition of your invaluable contributions to the growth and sustainability of the NYSC, I am pleased to inform you of your nomination as NYSC most friendly State.”

The Imo State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon Declan Emelumba, said the government and people of the State are delighted that such a salutary recognition and honour from a unifying national institution as the NYSC is being bestowed on Governor Uzodimma.

According to him, this again proves beyond all doubts, both reasonable and unreasonable, that Governor Uzodimma is an outstanding nationalist.

He noted that even before he became a public officer, Governor Uzodinma had been promoting the course of NYSC and Corps members.

He said even now as Governor, Senator Uzodimma had demonstrated unparalleled patriotism in the treatment of Corps members.

The Commissioner said that as a sign of his gratitude for the recognition, Governor Uzodimma will continue to work for the sustenance of those lofty ideals that the scheme is known for.

NYSC was established in  May 1973 by then Head of State, Gen Yakubu Gowon (rtd) to cement the unity of Nigeria.
