Anglican Youth Fellowship, Owerri Celebrated one of her Members for his positive representation of the Teachings of the Communion Outside the Diocese.

Below, is a detailed report according to a reporter by name Paul Osuyi from Asaba, Delta State Nigeria about a member of the Anglican Youth Fellowship Owerri Servicing at Asaba.

“Mr. Noble Chidera Akanwa, a serving member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) deployed to Delta State, returned an exotic android phone worth N500,000.00.

Akanwa, a Mbeiri native of Mbaitolu Local Government Area of Imo State, saw the phone as he walked alone to his hostel after watching an English Premiership match and decided to return to the NYSC’s Delta State management.

He is one of the members of the corps deployed to the state for the service year of the 2019 Batch ‘ B’ (Stream II).

Mr. Omotade Ayodele praised the computer science graduate of Imo State University at the closing ceremony of the orientation course at the NYSC camp in Issele-Uku, Aniocha North Local Government Area, state coordinator of the scheme, and urged other young people to emulate him.

Ayodele said NYSC management would further reward him with a one-month N19,800.00 allowance (bonus) in relation to a letter of award submitted to Akanwa on behalf of the NYSC by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, represented by Higher Education Commissioner Prof. Patrick Muoboghare.

In his comments, the governor indicated that by returning the phone, Akanwa exhibited a real Nigerian’s patriotic spirit and encouraged others to take a cue from him.

He said the government of the state will continue to monitor his (Akanwa’s) activities in the state during the year of service in order to reward him in due course.

The governor claimed that his administration was unalterably committed to the welfare of the members of the corps and their obligations to the NYSC, just as he urged the members of the Stream II corps to respect the cultural norms and traditions of the host societies for their main tasks.

“The distinctions may be minimal between the unique ways of life of the people and those you are used to. You must learn diligently to demonstrate knowledge and adaptability as a manner to justify some of the national service’s reasons

“Remember always that history will judge you on the basis of the level of beneficial effect and contributions that you record during your fatherland service,” he said.

Mr. Ayodele, for his part, told the members of the corps to “stay focused and undaunted” in their determination to contribute to the country’s service and development.

For such an act, we the Anglican Youth Fellowship commend our brother and we are proud to call him our own. Our prayer is for God to guide his journey towards success.

Long live Bro. Noble Akanwa!
