Muhammad Sani-Sidi who made the presentation of a cash prize at the end of a quiz competition among Secondary Schools in Abuja which was organized by the corps member, said that he was impressed by the volumes of contributions by the corps member for distinguishing himself in several awareness programmes including subscribibg over 25 feature articles in the media, publication of a booklet on ten major disasters which was translated into major Nigerian languages.

The NEMA boss said, “I am overwhelmed and impressed by the contributions of youth corps members on national development and particularly encouraged by the contributions of Abu Jimoh through his writings and advocacies, that I find it necessary to offer him a cash donation to pursue a postgraduate programme in disaster management in any of the six universities that offered the course in the country.”
While reiterating the commitment of NEMA at strengthening its collaboration with stakeholders including response agencies and NYSC on disaster management and awareness campaigns, he called on youths to avail themselves of the opportunity of serving in volunteer groups and clubs set up on disaster risk reduction in the country.
