Abubakar said the call became necessary because of the prevailing security situation in the country as well as many areas that required the attention of the Nigerian Army.

“However, we have come to you for more support, bearing in mind that the NYSC is the baby of the Nigerian Army.

“As you are aware, the NYSC has orientation camps which house a minimum of 1,500 Corps members in all the states of the federation, and given the incidences of insecurity in the country, we are concerned about the safety of the young men and women under our care.

“We, therefore, plead for additional personnel in all our orientation camps across the country. We will really appreciate your kind assistance in this regard, sir,” she said.
