Vol­un­teerism Key To Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment, Says La­gos Govt

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - By Gbenga Salau

LA­GOS State Gov­ern­ment has asked com­mu­nity lead­ers to iden­tify and en­cour­age mem­bers of their com­mu­ni­ties to al­ways vol­un­teer, as vol­un­teerism would play a key role in the de­vel­op­ment of com­mu­ni­ties.

The Spe­cial Ad­viser to Gov­er­nor Ak­in­wunmi Am­bode, Mr. Ke­hinde Joseph, speak­ing at an aware­ness pro­gramme on, ‘Vol­un­teerism, a tool for com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment’, said it is a fact that var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties in the state can­not get all their needs from gov­ern­ment, which is why it is cre­at­ing space and en­vi­ron­ment for the peo­ple to vol­un­teer.
