- Three young Nigerians who served their nation selflessly during their NYSC year now have instant job offers
- Writing about their lofty contributions to humanity, Governor Wike of Rivers state said they can also choose to have scholarships for their masters and PhDs
- Many Nigerians debated on what best to go for between the two offers, highlighting that both are good in different ways
The governor of Rivers, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has recognised three indigenes of the state, Gilbert Kiaka Goodness, Worlu Aruchi Rachael, and Jasper Deebari Uchenna, who got the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) presidential honour award.
On his Twitter page on Tuesday, March 23, the governor wrote about the achievements of the three young citizens.
Gilberts carried a plan to offer free ICT training to over 200 students in Bayelsa state where he served. Worlu on the other hand used her legal expertise to secure the release of 22 inmates from a prison in Yobe state without collecting a dime.
The third, Uchenna, named streets in Jigawa as a way to bring the state up to what is obtainable in modern places.
Governor Nyesom said that their contributions have earned them instant employments in the state or the option to study for their masters and PhDs in any university they wish to go to.
