Bayelsa state NYSC corps member, Valentine Umeh who would have turned a year older today, the 14th day of February, 2017 died few days back because NYSC allegedly did not provide life jackets for most corps members serving in the riverine areas of Bayelsa state reportedly.
Read the report below:
“We became friends in camp, later we got posted to the same PPA and inevitably became roommates. You said you were going to town to buy one or two things, but Valentine Umeh! You never made it back to our Corpers’ Lodge.
The speed boat Corper Valentine was inside capsized and he didn’t survive just because NYSC couldn’t provide Life Jacket for most of us serving in remote Islands here in Bayelsa.
14th February should have been your Birthday, and you said you were gonna turn our Corpers Lodge upside down with so much fun but now you are no more. RIP my friend… Corper Valentine Umeh #KoolGuy #MyFriend #MyRoommate #UniAbujaGraduate #GreatEconomist #Kennedyisgonnamissu4life.
