It was a carnival at the National Youth Service Orientation Camp in Sokoto, Northwest Nigeria recently when the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Right Rev. Dr. Matthew Hassan Kukah visited.
The Orientation Camp situated at Wamakko, an outskirt of the Sokoto State capital came alive with especially members of the National Association of Catholic Corps. They lined the route from the Camp gate to the Camp Chapel, singing and engaged in different cultural dances to welcome the Bishop on arrival before the Eucharistic celebration.
At hand at the Orientation Camp to receive the Bishop was the NYSC state coordinator Mr. Philip Enatomhe Enaber, Assistant Director Dr. Okparaocha Head Human Resources, Mr. Daniel Okpala as well as the patron and patroness of the Catholic Corps Members. Also present was the Chaplain, Sr. Celestina Akpan, DDL.
In his Homily, Bishop Matthew Kukah encouraged the new Corps members to see their posting to Sokoto State as part of God’s plan for their service year.
The NYSC state coordinator promised a television set to the NACC family house
