He assured that the governments of Delta and Edo states will continue to reward excellent service among Corps members and encourage any service that is capable of improving the life of our people.
He assured that the state governments would also encourage them to make good use of the skills acquisition training they have received.
“Besides, we will consciously make the security of corps members a priority and endeavour to provide a peaceful atmosphere for these youths to fully integrate into various communities in Delta and Edo to contribute their quota and make meaningful development,” Okowa said.
