Members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Kebbi State have donated locally made face masks, liquid hand wash and hand sanitisers to the state government.

Presenting the items to the State Government at the Malaria Control Units, the State Cordintor of the scheme, Alhaji Mustapha Mohammed, said that the items were part of the scheme’s contributions toward curbing the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

He said: “These items are produced by corps members serving in the state as part of their contributions to the fight against Coronavirus.

“They produced the items under the NYSC’s Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme. The corps members locally produced the items as their  part of their contributions to the fight against COVID-19.

“This is in compliance with the NYSC Director-General’s directive for contributions by the scheme to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the country.”

Tbe NYSC boss further that, “COVID-19 is a global pandemic and  the NYSC cannot fold its arms waiting for the government alone to profer solutions.  Actually, it is supposed to be a collective responsibility of all Nigerians.”

Mohammed added that the corps members’ contributions did not just stop at the production of the items but had been  involved in other engagements too.

He said that the corps members had equally embarked on sensitisation campaigns on the pandemic and fumigation of some local government areas.

The state Commissioner  for Health, Mallam Muhammed Ja’afar,  received  the items on behalf of the state government.

Ja’afar, also the  Chairman, Task Force Committee on COVID-19 in the state, appreciated the corps members for their efforts.

“The committee is very grateful to  the NYSC’s SAED for providing various protective devices which will be used to help curtail the spread of COVID-19 in the state. Your initiative to support Kebbi State Government in curtailing this pandemic is a very noble one.”
