For taking giant strides in his service to the nation and commitment to uplifting the underprivileged in the society, Toyosi, a 2013 graduate of Chemical Engineering from Covenant University, has been bestowed with the 2015/2016 President’s National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Award.
Toyosi was commended for his outstanding performance and sterling qualities as a member of the NYSC during the 2014 service year by the Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, during an award ceremony on Friday, 26 April, 2019, at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
As reported by Covenant University…
Imbued with passion to positively impact on society and provoke change, Toyosi, who was deployed to Benue State for the mandatory national service in 2014, executed several personal community development projects to address some critical social amenity needs of his host community.
The Ekiti State-born engineer had during his time in Benue rehabilitated a number of boreholes at the State General Hospital, Adikpo, to alleviate the water problem in the community. In a bid to alleviate poverty and empower the womenfolk in his host community, Toyosi organised and conducted skills acquisition and entrepreneurial training on baking for women within Kwande Local Government, with the aim of combating poverty in the council area.
