The National Youth Service Corps is a scheme set up by the Nigerian government to involve Nigerian graduates in nation-building and the development of the country.
During the compulsory service year, Nigerian fresh graduates are expected to serve both as a group and sometimes individually. Some go the extra mile to impact their host community; so is the case of Stephen Teru, a corp member who used his skills to make desks, tables, benches, and shelves for the comfort of over 80 students in Cross River state.
Stephen Teru shared:
“To God be the glory! I volunteered my skill to produce desks, tables, benches, and shelves for the comfort of over 80 students and pupils of the two public schools (Community Secondary School and St. Georges Primary School) in my host community -Old Netim, Akamkpa LGA. Cross River State.
I must in a very special way appreciate the good people of the community for their support.
Big thanks to my ever-supportive principal Mr. Emmanuel Eni Sir, you are too much! My NYSC Inspector, Mr. Ubong Effanga, thank you, Sir!
You’ve been a great source of motivation to us all. All my friends and colleagues, thanks for being there. My family at Jos, this is for you!”
