A current serving Batch ‘B’ corps member, who was assigned to work with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Ebonyi State, Mr. Omolekan Oluwole, has donated a mini-library equipped with research materials to the state headquarters of the commission in Abakaliki.
According to Daily Sun, Oluwole revealed that the project was part of his Community Development Service (CDS), saying “is one of the integral parts of the four-cardinal programme of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).”
The Corps member disclosed during the opening and handing over of the library that he observed that the workers of the commission were faced with the challenges of getting access to relevant information, he saw the need to establish a mini-library.
Furthermore, he was encouraged to embark on the project following the go-ahead order given to him by the NYSC and the commission.
During the unveiling of the mini-library, equipped with book shelves, plastic chairs, reading tables, relevant books, manuals, journals/magazines, Oluwole said it was his personal contribution to the development of the INEC and the entire community. He therefore charged the commission to take further steps to expand the library.
Dr. Lawrence Azubuike, who is the state INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), expressed gratitude to Oluwole for coming to their rescue, just as he recalled how the commission existed for years without a place where workers could access information.
Represented by the Head of Department, General Administration and Procurement, Dr. S. Johnson, he described Oluwole as humble and hard-working and further urged other corps members to emulate him.
