On Monday, a member of the 653 NYSC members deployed to Ekiti State as part of the 2020 “Batch B stream 1A” has delivered a baby girl at Emure – Ekiti.
This happened just as the NYSC in Ekiti State introduced a “Camp Court” to try straying Corps members.
Mrs Rose Onoja, the NYSC Public Relations Officer in the state, announced the news of the child’s birth in a statement made available to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti.
According to the PRO, the new mother had to be rushed to the clinic at the camp soon after her registration as she was falling into labour. From the clinic, she was taken to the General Hospital, Emure, where she was delivered of the baby.
Onoja added that both mother and baby are in good health condition.
On the introduction of the Camp Court, Mrs Mary Chikezie, the Ekiti NYSC State Coordinator, said it was part of new strategies aimed at instilling discipline among corps members.
Chikezie warned against acts of contravention of the rules and regulations of the NYSC.
She said, “We urge all corps members to adhere to the rules. As a matter of fact, there is a Camp Court for the trial of any erring one.”
