In what could be described as a praiseworthy development, two ex-corp members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), have given back to the society by building six toilets and one septic tank to the community where they served.
The former NYSC members identified as Onajite Solomon and Israel Victor were both members of the Batch A, Stream 1 of 2017 and had completed their service in April, 2018. They, however, remained committed to completing the project which they had started.
Reaching out to Legit.ng, one of the duo, Solomon, revealed that the project had taken a good 10 months before completion. This according to him was because they had to solicit funds from well-meaning individuals who related with the good they were trying to do.
Solomon further disclosed that he and his partner were inspired to embark on the project after taking note of the inadequate toilet facilities for the students’ population at the Girls Secondary School, Nnewi, Anambra state, where they both served their father land.
He said: "We are batch A stream 1 of 2017, we passed out on April 2018,our service year is from may 23 2017 to April 23 2018,it took us ten months to execute the project because we have to go round Nnewi to solicit fund from well placed individuals of Nnewi, eventually some persons responded by giving us money for the project. the project is six toilets and one septic tank, we executed this project while we were serving at Girls Secondary School, Nnewi ,Anambra state .

He added that he and his partner would be much obliged if the project can get the attention of the UNICEF, as they were both interested in being engaged in the campaign against open defecation and indiscriminate defecation in the country.
