Why Lagos NYSC camp may soon be moved from Iyana-Ipaja to Agbowa

The camp of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Lagos State located in Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos Mainland may soon be moved to Agbowa community if the plans of the State Coordinator of the NYSC, Prince Mohammed Momoh materializes.

Momoh has appealed to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to make good his promise of a new orientation camp which is expected to be located in Agbowa, Lagos Mainland.

Speaking at the closing of the 2018 Batch ‘B’ stream II orientation programme at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Iyana Ipaja, Momoh thanked the Ambode for allocating a land in Agbowa, Ikorodu, to the scheme but pleaded for the completion of paperwork on the land as well as erection of a befitting structure.

According to him, the NYSC had a design that could accommodate up to 7,000 corps members on the new land – waiting from when the government would give the go-ahead for work to begin.

“We are networking with government and we have gone ahead to commission a team of very dedicated crop of professionals who have developed and designed a 7,000-capacity orientation camp and this having been submitted to the state government for consideration and adoption, and we are aware that the surveyor general of the state is also trying to perfect the paper for the land.

“You know one thing is to say this land is proposed for this, and another thing is for the perfection of the paper.  We believe that soon we would get good news,” he said.

He continued that; “I know the state government is also aware and they are trying their best to see what can be done very soon because Lagos happen to be the only state in the whole Southwest that does not have a permanent orientation camp and this position those not befit a mega city that has the status of Lagos.”
