A corps member with the name Ahmad Abubakar has made a big donation of a digital library to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) as his personal Community Development Service (CDS) project, Siggy reports.
According to the NYSC Facebook post, the corps member said that normal libraries are becoming a thing of old all over the world, and that is why the need for digital libraries is important.
The young man added that he decided to work on the project because he wants to help the service to enrich its resourcefulness to corps members and staff.
With the new project, access to NYSC materials will be digitalized and that will help easy access. The man stated that he was able to source funds in getting things like printers, book scanners, a server, among others.
The director-general of the NYSC, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, appreciated his gesture as he described the young man as an honest and dedicated corps member. The DG, therefore, implored other members to follow in Abubakar’s footsteps and provide projects people will remember them by.
