As part of efforts to stem the spread of the covid-19 pandemic in Nigeria, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Monday delivered more than 10,000 face masks to the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development to be distributed to athletes.

The ceremony which took place at the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development in Abuja, saw the Director General of the NYSC Brigadier General Ibrahim Shuaibu hand over the masks to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry Mr. Gabriel Aduda who stood in for the Minister Mr. Sunday Dare.

The over 10,000 face masks handmade by the corps members were produced ahead of the resumption of sporting activities to support athletes against the spread of covid-19 during the festival which was put on hold.

Aduda while receiving the masks from the Youth Service Corps, said he was impressed with their kind gesture towards complementing the Ministry’s efforts at safeguarding the health of Nigerian athletes. He affirmed that the effort would further complement the local content production championed by President Mohamnadu Buhari, even as it would make the Corpers self employed.

“This memorable event is important to us because of what the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration is doing to support local content by giving room for home grown initiatives,” Aduda said.

It would be recalled that the Ministry had requested for 20, 000 face masks, but 10, 000 pieces were delivered.

Brigadier General Ibrahim applauded the Ministry for giving opportunity to the National Youth Service Corps to contribute towards making the society safe.
