NCDMB Gets First Aid Box from NYSC Members

By Dipo Olowookere

Road caution signs and first aid box have been donated to the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) by outgoing members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving with the agency.

The items, we gathered, were donated to assist road users and maintain the safety practice of the board.

Presenting the items, Ms Chioma Okoro, who served in the Human Resources Division, explained that she settled for road signs because of the busy nature of the road leading to NCDMD’s headquarters and her concern for the safety of staff and stakeholders who visit the board.

She said, “In a bid to assist road users and maintain the safety practice of the board, I decided to undertake this project.

“The caution signs and the clearly marked road will assist motorist to be conscious of their safety while driving in and out of the Board’s premises.”

Later, members of 2016 Batch A presented a First Aid Box to the Board.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Mr Lorsbl Okechukwu, serving with the Public Affairs Division, appreciated the agency for the opportunity to contribute their quota to the development of the country.

He added that they acquired a lot of knowledge about the oil and gas industry and particularly on Local Content in the course of their service year.

He further assured that they will remain good ambassadors and uphold the values they learnt in their service year.

In his remarks, Executive Secretary of NCDMB, Engr. Simbi Wabote, thanked the corps members for their efforts and congratulated them on the successful completion of their service year.
