NYSC member cries out over poor state of Bayelsa Orientation Camp
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that an NYSC member had lamented the state of the Bayelsa Orientation Camp.
He hammered on the fact that the shabby-looking lodge exposed corps members to mosquitoes and wasn't properly ventilated.
In the night video he released, it was observed that the roofing was scattered and had openings with some parts of it dragging on the floor. The room which practically had nothing in it lacked things befitting for human abode.
