The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, is a program set up in 1973 by the Federal Government after the civil war to involve Nigerian graduates in nation building and the development of the country, as well as promote peaceful coexistence among the various ethnic groups.

These NYSC graduates are posted to other states to serve their father land for one year and they are often provided accommodation in their places of primary assignment.

The NYSC Lodge is Located at a serene and peaceful community, it has male and female lodges with ten rooms each, with two common rooms for the relaxation of Corps members after a hectic day. Today, the lodge has become a nightmare to residents, as it is heavily flooded whenever it rains, destroying most of their personal effects, including certificate.

The common rooms which are empty without any piece of furniture, has become a breeding ground for rats and dangerous reptiles. The toilets have become a death trap and the NYSC members defecate at nearby bushes.

Though the compound is fenced with a gate, often times, hoodlums scale the fence to rob the corps members. Some corps members spoke on the state of facilities at the lodge.    

Our Correspondent also spoke with the leadership of Edjeba Community, on their efforts in ameliorating the plight of the corps members. 

Chief Cashier Ikpuri and former Youth President of the Community, Mr Sheriff Okekere said the Community has been of tremendous help to the corps members, but cannot do it alone.                 

The corps members and the leadership of Edjeba Community appealed to the State and Warri South Local Governments to come to the aid of the corps members by rehabilitating the lodge.
