COMMISSIONER for Works of Anambra State, Marcel Ifejiofor, has urged corps members serving in the ministry to maintain the tempo of selfless service for which the service is renowned.

Addressing members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), serving in the ministry after they undertook a cleaning exercise of the ministry’s environment, Ifejiofor praised them for their spirit of patriotism, loyalty, selfless services and diligence to work as demonstrated by their decision to tidy up the ministry’s

environment and make it more conducive for meaningful work.
The commissioner advised the corps members to continue to imbibe the virtues of hard work as it was the only way they could succeed in their future endeavors.

In her comments, the Acting Deputy Director, Administration, Ministry of Works, Emenike Stacia, described the gesture by the corps members as unprecedented in the history of the ministry.

She said she was surprised when the corps members first muted the idea of carrying out the cleaning exercise as that was the first time in the history of the ministry.

Mrs Emenike said she was however happy when she reported to work that morning and discovered that the entire environment was looking clean and well kept. She urged them to keep up the good work and to continue to serve the nation with dedication and respect to constituted authority.

The leader of the corps members in the ministry, Jovita Okoro, who is serving in the Accounts Department, said that the exercise was part of their community development service (CDS), in their places of primary assignment. She said the ministry had impacted so much on them, adding that the clean up exercise was a show of appreciation.

Also, Obiajunwa Donald Chidi, a corp member serving in the Administration Department of the ministry, expressed gratitude for serving in the ministry, saying that it has helped his self development, making him to learn how to be a good administrator.

On his relationship with the management, Mr. Obiajunwa described it as cordial, adding that they were given all the necessary support needed. He however, advised his fellow corp members serving in other organisations to emulate what they did so that their places of primary assignment will feel their impact.
