Outgoing members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving with the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) have donated road caution signs and first aid box to the Board.
Donating the road signs, which was her individual project, Ms Chioma Okoro, who is serving with Human Resources Division explained that she settled for road signs because of the busy nature of the road leading to the Board’s headquarter and her concern for the safety of staff and stakeholders who visit the Board.
According to her, “In a bid to assist road users and maintain the safety practice of the Board, I decided to undertake this project. The caution signs and the clearly marked road will assist motorist to be conscious of their safety while driving in and out of the Board’s premises.”
Members of 2016 Batch A corps members later presented a First Aid Box to the Board. Speaking on behalf of the group, Mr. Lorsbl Okechukwu serving with the Public Affairs Division, appreciated the Board for the opportunity to contribute their quota to the development of the country. He added that they acquired a lot of knowledge about the oil and gas industry and particularly on Local Content in the course of their service year.
He further assured that they will remain good ambassadors and uphold the values they learnt in their service year.
Commissioning the road caution signs and the first aid box, the Executive Secretary, NCDMB, Engr. Simbi Wabote commended the corps members for their efforts and congratulated them on the successful completion of their service year.
He explained that community development projects are undertaken by individual corps members who desire to add value to the society and excel in life. He described it as selfless service and a key development initiative to the environment.
The NCDMB boss also charged the outgoing youth corps members to remain committed to the course of humanity and strive to excel in their chosen endeavours.
