Two secondary schools’ principals had lauded Miss Ujunwa Anene, a Batch B, 2015 National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, for renovating their schools’ libraries in Calabar, Cross River.

They gave the commendation in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Calabar.

They told NAN that Anene embarked on the renovation as part of her Community Development Project during the service year.

Mrs. Regina Agaba, Principal of Government College, Ikot Ansa, Calabar, said that the corps member had surprised the school authorities by the gesture.

Agaba said that hoodlums had earlier vandalised the library.

She said: “Hoodlums carted away the reading chairs and tables because there was no burglary proof.

“The corps member had replaced those things, provided new shelves and renovated the entire place.

“Miss Anene is simply marvelous and we, indeed, appreciate her efforts. After library had been vandalized, our students had no quite place to read.

“Now she has brought life back to our library; she is a God sent.’’

Also, the Principal of Estate Secondary School, Calabar, Mrs.Felicia Atsu, described the corps member’s project in her school as being worthy of emulation.

“It is difficult to find people like Anene these days; it takes the heart of gold to do the things she did for our school. She is a hardworking woman.

“It is a positive development that will enhance learning; my students now have a serene place to study.

“She didn’t do it because she was so rich; she did it because she wanted to touch the lives of other people.

“I love what she had done and I pray other corps members will emulate her good gesture,” Atsu said.

The NYSC member who is serving with General Electric (GE), Calabar, told NAN that she was moved by the plights of the students who lacked conducive learning environments for learning.

Anene told NAN that the project which she executed with the support of some corporate organisations and philanthropists cost over N1million.
