- Omaka Samuel Dike has ended up celebrated as a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC)
- Serving in a community in Kwara state, Dike has been able to provide five different projects within just five months
- Some Nigerians are already calling on the authorities to accord the corps member an honour
When Omaka Samuel Dike graduated, like his colleagues, he waited patiently for his turn to serve Nigeria as a member of the National Youth Service Corps. Then the opportunity came.
The young graduate from the southeastern part of the country, understood what he was going to do in Kwara state, his area of primary assignment.
Within five months, Dike spent his monthly allowances carrying out five different projects within the community he was posted to.
At the end of the five months, the youth corps member had positively touched every single person within the community. These included water and desks for the school in the village.
The gesture by the corps member has fetched him accolades with some saying he deserves the highest praise for loving his country that much, especially amid calls by some citizens that the NYSC had overstayed its goals and should be scrapped.
It was also an opportunity for some Nigerians to take on the government for its inability to provide the needed infrastructure for the people.
Legit.ng reported earlier how 40 members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving at the Kano/Jigawa area command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) recently paid the WAEC fees of no fewer than 50 indigent students in Kano.
According to the Corps Liaison Officer (CLO), Comrade Akin-Ola Emmanuel, the gesture was aimed at assisting Kano indigent students.
The receipt of payment to the tune of N697,500 was handed to the Kano state commissioner for education, Malam Muhammad Sanusi Sa’id Kiru, at a ceremony held on Monday, March 3.
Meanwhile, it also reported that just after an increment in the allowances of corps members in Nigeria, one of them was recently celebrated for donating his N33,000 to the less privileged in his area of service.
The young man is pictured wearing a broad smile while standing in a bushy path.
