FG will support volunteerism for the national debt

The Federal Government has reiterated its commitment to supporting volunteering activities for the socio-economic development of the country.

Permanent Secretary, Political and Economic Affairs Office, Office of the Secretary To The Government of The Federation (OSGF), Mr. Andrew Adejo, said this at Abagana, Anambra State at the closing ceremony of the State Association World Wide (ASA-World) free medical outreach.

Represented by Emmanuel Agodi, Adejo said the government’s support services to the association through its Nigerian National Volunteer Service Department (NNVS) would go a long way to enhancing good health and productivity.

His words, “We have been encouraging volunteer groups and associations to offer their efforts and services to complement the government’s developmental efforts.

“It is understood that ASA-World has been undertaking this program annually as part of its contribution to the development of Anambra State and the Department usually renders support to ensure the program is conducted successfully.”

Adejo also charged voluntary organizations to synergize for health service delivery to the people in rural communities while lamenting global health challenges, especially the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic.
