The World Safety Organization (WSO) and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the need for all Nigerians to be more aware of safe living habits and the environment.
During the signing of the MoU at the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters in Abuja, Mr Soji Olalokun, President of the World Safety Organisation, said the partnership would provide capacity building in health, safety, security, environment, emergency preparedness and response, accident prevention technology, and other areas for Corps volunteers.
The safety emergency response readiness, according to Olalokun, is aimed at equipping Nigerians to create healthy habits and environments at work, in schools, and in all public places.
“Every Corps volunteer contributes to the Scheme’s success through the World Safety Organization.”
It plans to collaborate and facilitate a two-day ‘Train the Trainers’ activity during the Orientation Course for One Hundred Corps Volunteers who will be posted to fifty schools in pairs within the benefiting pilot states of Kogi, FCT, Rivers, Edo, Lagos, and Ekiti, with the hope of eventually covering the remaining states,” Olalokun said.
The WSO President had previously praised Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim, the NYSC Director-General, for his transformational efforts in the scheme and described it as a powerful tool for national development.
Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim, NYSC Director-General, spoke through Director, Legal Services, Barrister Tijani Ibrahim, and pledged the Scheme’s support for the partnership’s success.
