Plateau State Governor Jonah Jang has urged corps members deployed to the state to be alert and report any suspicious activities around them to security personnel in the light of the recent developments in the nation.
Gov. Jang gave this advice yesterday at the official opening and swearing-in ceremony of the Batch ‘B’ 2011 corps members at the Zang Commercial School, Bukuru temporary orientation camp. A total of 1,801 were posted to the state.
Jang who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Mr. Gyang Pwajok, maintained that security was everybody’s business and as Plateau has had its fair share of security challenges, everything was being done, especially with the establishment of the ‘Operation Rainbow” security outfit, to tackle security problems in the state.
He said, “these are trying times for us in the nation and it has become absolutely necessary that all hands be on deck for the speedy resolution of the problems facing our dear nation.
“Plateau has experienced a fair share of this unfolding national security challenges. Our heart goes to all those who lost their lives to keep this country together, especially the recent post- election which culminated in the targeting of corps members. We hope their labour will not be in vain”.
The NYSC state coordinator, Mr. Maram Maful reminded the corps members to participate fully in the cardinal programmes of orientation course as they were the ideals that would prepare them to contribute their quota to nation building.
