In other news, a former member of the NYSC, Glory Oguegbu, has been honoured by the United States for lifting women out of poverty.
The United States embassy took to its official Facebook page to celebrate Glory, saying the young lady has continued to be a shining example since she embarked on the Mandela Washington Fellowship in 2016.
Glory volunteered with the NYSC to empower women in Kwara state so as to lift them out of poverty.
She said: “It occurred to me that, if only we could process cassava, we could make money for these women. It could lead to real economic growth.”
The young lady built a cassava factory with the help of community leaders and created jobs for women.
Glory said: “I wanted more women to be employed. I wanted them to be able to take care of their children.”
