Some members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in Enugu State have expressed concern over the high cost of house rent in Enugu and its environs. A corps member, Miss Odichi Joseph described the high cost of rent in the state capital and adjoining communities as `alarming’. Joseph said that four to five corps members usually combined to rent accommodation between N250, 000 and N300, 000 in some obscure locations. She appealed to the state government to provide affordable lodges where corps members serving in the state capital could reside in their service year. NAN reports that the high cost of house rent in Enugu and its environ has generated a big discourse in the social space as Enugu now rates as one of the most expensive cities in the country.
