A first look at the structure, one would think it’s one of those local government’s projects that attracted flamboyant political commissioning.
But it’s a personal community development project of one of the 2017 National Youth Service Corps, NYSC Batch A, Stream 1, corps member, Mark Tega, in Kebbi State.
Community Development Service (CDS) is one of the four cardinal programmes of NYSC in rural communities.
“It is worthy of note to State that through Corps CDS activities, the NYSC is recognized by Development partners as a principal organization and a major player on the issue of development within communities and across the nation,” NYSC management says.
Interestingly, Mark Tega isn’t the only corps member who undertook such a huge project.
Others did the same across the country in their host communities in efforts to better their communities the they met them at the end of their service year.
Another corps member, Nwokedi Dozie, in Benue State erected and equipped a science laboratory at Cho Community Secondary School, Makurdi, Benue State.

CDS is a department within the NYSC structure.
One of the achievements of the department include :
Employment of nine (9) ex-corps members who benefitted from the NYSC Hope Alive Programme (NYSC–HAP). The nine were recently given their Letters of Appointment into the Federal Civil Service by the Federal Civil Service Commission.
We wish the accomplished ex-corps members the best in their future endeavours.
