Jubilation in Anambra school as corps member renovates toilets
A corps member in Anambra state, Bedewa Adesola Oluwatoyin has renovated a block of dilapidated toilets at the Community Secondary School, Umuoamaku, Orumba South Local Government Area of the State.
Oluwatoyin said she was motivated to embark on the project following the sorry state of the facility.
She said it was embarrassing the day she had need to use the toilet following a runny stomach she developed after meal.
She said, “I had only spent a few weeks at the school when I consumed something that I was reacting to, which led to my steady stooling.
“I was shocked to find out that the convenience was in a deplorable state. As a result of the near embarrassment, I decided i must undertake the project.”
Speaking during the commissioning on Thursday, the State Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mr Kehinde Aremu commended the project initiator for undertaking such a laudable project.
Aremu, who was represented by the Assistant Director, Community Development Service, Mrs Bernadette Nwokeke described as enormous corps members’ contributions to the development of their host community over the years.
He urged stakeholders to encourage corps members through donations of materials for the provision of felt needs of their host communities.
Responding, Chairman of the Local Government, Chief CY Okereke, represented by Mr Anayo Ibekwe poured encomiums on the benefactor for her determination in completing the project amidst hardship occasioned by COVID-19 pandemic.
