How she helped the government………
It started when she was a youth corper in 2013/2014 in Ondo State. She got a girl to be living with her.
So she took her to a nearby school to register her, on getting there, the headmistress said she can’t be admitted because there were no chairs and lockers and even during the rain, they beg the children not to come to school because of leaking roofs.
When she got home she couldn’t sleep…. The thought of the kids sitting on the floor kept disturbing her.
The next CDS, the zonal inspector spoke to us about community development projects. She went to see the Zonal Inspector (ZI) after the meeting, the zonal inspector told her more and even said the project would be commissioned by NYSC and the government too would award her with a job after the commissioning.
Fiam, she went back to the school (Fanibi Community Primary School Akure) to tell the headmistress about her intention, she was happy that she brought out the pupils, they sang and prayed that day.
Work began…. The site engineers said it will cost 1.3m to renovates the classrooms and provide at least 80 chairs and lockers…
Where will she get the money from? She went back to the ZI and he told her to write a proposal and give to people.
She did and she got fourty five thousand naira (#45k) only and others gave he different stories and NYSC kept reminding her that it must be concluded before the end of the service year, and 3months gone already.
She went for a loan with d hope of paying it back when she start working….. To cut the long story short, God helped her and the project got completed 4weeks before the passing out.
She went back to NYSC, they kept telling her how busy they were, they didn’t commission it not talk of the government seeing it.
She wept, begged them and did all she could and even told them she’s owing…. All they did was gave her a certificate.
What kind of country is this that keeps saying the government can’t do it all alone and yet does not appreciate those doing it…..
She felt cheated.. And to even say she’s still paying the loan is a story for another day because the interest is killing.
But anytime she visit the school and saw the smile on those little angels faces, she feel happy and it pushes her to do more because she know that she have made that little child love school more.
Encouraged that little girl to love education and be a great woman in future
Ogunleye Modupe Ishola has helped the Government… She’s an education ambassador in Nigeria…..
To all the ex corpers like her , that did one thing or the other and the government didn’t even shake u not to talk of saying thank u, God will repay you all.
God bless my Nigeria.
