So Sad ‘Two NYSC members died in Edo’

Two members of the National Youth Service Corps who were part of 2014 Batch C corps members deployed to Edo State died during the year.

The dead corps members are – Emokpaire Joy Oshuwa and Ayansina David.
This was disclosed by Governor Adams Oshiomhole while declaring the 2014 Batch C service year closed.

Represented by the state’s Commissioner for Education, Gideon Obhakhan, Oshiomhole said a total of 2,476 corps member posted to the state successfully completed their service year.

The governor described the NYSC as a beacon of hope for the development of Nigeria and praised corps members who embarked on various grassroot projects in some communities in the state.

He said, “The year must have been exciting and equally challenging to those of you who strived to imprint you names in the proverbial sands of time by initiating laudable programmes that have direct bearing on the grassroot populace. I am particularly impressed by the impact made by the 2014 batch C corps member through community development projects embarked on.

“The NYSC scheme has greatly enhanced our nation’s unity. It is indeed a beacon of hope and indispensable factor in our national development.

“The youth as future leaders determine the socio-economic development of any nation and its high level population which makes it a fertile business soil for the proactive and adventurous youth.”
