It was a moment of pure ecstasy and tremendous joy when the NYSC Team Rivers drama troupe was announced as the 1st position winners of the drama event at the just concluded national finals of 2021 DG NYSC annual sports/cultural competition.
In the same vein, NYSC Team Rivers won the bronze medal in the football event after emerging 3rd position.
In the drama event, Team Rivers troupe held the audience which were made up of the crème de la crème of the political class, NYSC top management and drivers of the Nollywood industry spellbound with their well articulated presentation which the judges described as “pure quality and world class”.
The achievements above are a clear indication of Mr. George’s mission statement that excellence should be the watchword of NYSC Rivers state.
In line with his mission statement, he has led from the front by motivating Team Rivers to achieve the above noble feat in his first week in office.
The brand new State Coordinator in a reaction to Team Rivers success described it as a “victory for the government and good people of Rivers state, especially for governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike whom he noted is a magnificent supporter of the Scheme”.
Mr. George congratulated the corps members for making Rivers state proud in the comity of NYSC formations nationwide.
He said he has no doubt that the successes recorded by the drama and football teams will inspire the state government to invest more in the programmes and activities of the NYSC in the state.
