State Coordinator Commends Onari And Georgewill For Provision Of Welfare For Youth Corpers

By Chioma Andy
Rivers State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps with Youth Corp members posted to Akuku-Toru Local Government Area, has commended the efforts of Mr. Theodore Georgewill and Hon. Onari Brown for providing them with good and enabling environment for their service year.
During a familiarization visit paid to the Council on Wednesday, 13th February 2013, at Abonnema, Headquarter of the L.G., the State Coordinator, Mrs. Josephine Onoghae, thanked the council for the new Corpers Lodge.

“Providing an enabling environment which in this case is the provision of a modem Corpers Lodge will not only take care of the financial burdens a corper undergoes in paying for an apartment, but it will also give the corper the spirit to do his best knowing that he has a comfortable home to come back to at the end of his work,” Onoghae said.
She gave special thanks to Honourable member representing Akuku-Toru constituency I at the Rivers State House of Assembly, Hon. Onari Brown, for solely proving the state of the art Corpers Lodge for corpers posted to the area.

She said that the act was worthy of emulation and encouraged other well meaning individuals to find joy in carrying out such act to humanity.
Mrs. Onoghae also commended the Council Chairman, Theodore Georgewill, for his interest and assistance to the corpers whenever they needed assistance of the council.
She however pleaded with him to help in securing the Lodge for complete peace of mind of corpers lodging there.
“The corpers lodge itself is quite beautiful and very comfortable for corpers to lodge. The only area that we have concern in is in its security. We plead that the Chairman and the council do provide adequate security to the place to secure the life and property of these corpers,” She said.
Onoghae while addressing the corpers encouraged them to reciprocate the good gestures from the council boss and the Assembly Member.

 “It is very important that you give your best in the service of the area that you are posted to serve. One of the basic needs of man which gives him peace of mind is his shelter. Now you have it and so I encourage you to reciprocate the good deeds done by the Council Chairman and to the Honourable Member by giving nothing short of your best,” she added.

She also admonished the corpers to desist from anything that would tarnish their image and bring shame to their families and the state in general. She added that they should take their primary assignment seriously in order to leave legacies behind for the community they served and also to be security conscious.
The Chairman of the Council, Mr. Theodore Georgewill, in his response thanked Mrs. Onoghae and members of the corp for coming to Akuku-Toru and assured her that the council will always assist corp members posted to the area.

Georgewill also commended Onari’s move in providing for the Corpers Lodge while assuring the State Coordinator that adequate security will be provided at the lodge.
He pleaded with her to post medical doctors that will assist people in the model health centres built by the State Government.
“We thank you for always proving us with corp members that serve in the Local Goverment Council. But we have an appeal to make, and the appeal is that you send us medical doctors to serve in the good hospitals that state government has provided for the community. This way, the community will have access to quality health care,” he finished.

Reacting, Hon. Onari Brown who was represented by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Fisheries, Mr. Alapuye Cotterel, said that the deed was as a result of him carrying out his legislative duties as the Member representing Akuku-Toru II at the State Assembly.
He said, ‘‘The lodge was considered due to the fact that it will go a long way in making our corp members comfortable, which will in turn enable them serve the Local Government Area better.’’
