A graduate of the University of Jos Stephen Teru has donated 80 wooden desks and benches to his students and pupils in Cross River State.
Teru who is a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in Akamkpa Local Government Area of Cross River State showed his patriotism and philanthropic gesture with his donation to his place of primary assignment.
He made the desks, benches and shelves by himself, according to him to “the glory” of God!
“I volunteered my skill to produce desks, tables, benches and shelves for the comfort of over 80 students and pupils of the two public schools (Community Secondary School and St. Georges Primary School) in my host community -Old Netim, Akamkpa LGA. Cross River State.”
He even went further, to appreciate those who assisted him with the project: “I must in a special way appreciate the good people of the community for their support. Big thanks to my ever supportive principal Mr Emmanuel Eni, sir, you are too much! My NYSC Inspector, Mr Ubong Effanga, thank you sir!
“You’ve been a great source of motivation to us all. All my friends and colleagues, thanks for being there.
My family at Jos, this is for you,” he wrote in his Facebook page.
The gesture has caused encomiums and awards tonight come his way.
