The General Officer Commanding, 1 Division Nigerian Army, Kaduna, Major General MLD Sarazo has assured that officers and men of the Division would ensure that Corps Members and NYSC formations within its areas of operation continuously enjoy maximum protection.

He said all Corps Members serving in the Division are equally accorded high priority with other privileges alongside the Army Officers.

The GOC disclosed this today when the NYSC Director General, Brigadier General YD Ahmed paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Kaduna.

He stated further that NYSC has always been a part of the Nigerian Army, hence, the need to foster a stronger relationship between both government establishments.

General Sarazo added that the Division would continue to work with other sister security agencies, community leaders, traditional rulers, religious groups, political leaders, and other stakeholders in the effective discharge of its duties.

“We will continue to provide adequate security for all Corps Lodges, NYSC Secretariats, and Orientation Camps”, he said.

The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General YD Ahmed, while speaking earlier, congratulated the GOC on his appointment.

He disclosed that 1 Div Kaduna is one of the critical stakeholders of NYSC, especially by providing a robust welfare package, security, and other logistics support for Corps Members serving at the Division.

General Ahmed also commended the Division for its support for NYSC Kaduna State Secretariat, through the deployment of military personnel to the Orientation Camp for drills, physical training, and other security matters.

Renowned Anambra industrialist and CEO of Zobis Cables Ltd, Engr. John Ezeobi, on Wednesday, 19th June,2024, paid a surprise visit to his alma mater, Ede Secondary School in Okoti, Odekpe, Ogbaru LGA of Anambra State, to assess the school’s infrastructure.

Ezeobi, who attended the school from 2001 to 2003 and served as the Senior Prefect, was touched by the decaying infrastructure, particularly the school’s vulnerability to flooding during the rainy season. He said he was approached by the school’s owners to buy the property, but he declined, wanting to preserve the institutional legacy. He equally stated that the school harbours some part of his childhood memories and most importantly shaped him into what he is today in the society.

Despite the school being a private school, Ezeobi was moved to intervene, as the deteriorating infrastructure and environmental challenges posed significant obstacles to learning.

He has planned a two-phase project, which includes rebuilding classroom blocks, constructing modern toilets, and implementing flood control measures.

The first phase of the project is expected to be completed within two months, after which the company will move on to the second stage which is expected to gulp several million of naira.

The industrialist expressed optimism that the impact on the school’s 350 students and new enrollments will have a positive effect on the community.

The project is being carried out under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative of Ezeobi’s company, Zobis Cables Industries Ltd.

The school’s administration has commended Ezeobi’s generosity, expressing excitement and a sense of rejuvenation as the institution returns to life through the efforts of one of its alumni.

Ede Secondary School was founded in 1994 by Chief Dr. Elder John Ugboma Okei (Ede 1 of Odekpe).
