Aid Corps urges Nigerian volunteers to shun politics in Namibia
NIGERIAN volunteers to Namibia have been advised to be good ambassadors of the country and avoid getting involved in the local politics in that country.
Director General of the Technical Aid Corps (TAC) Dr. Pius Osunyinkanmi gave the advice yesterday while addressing the volunteers at the agreement signing/send forth for their departure of the volunteers to Nambia.
The 16 volunteers, who are to be engaged as teachers joined their other colleagues making a total of 76 so far sent to Namibia. Specifically, they are to be engaged in that country in the area of arts, social sciences and pure sciences subjects.
TAC had in December 2014 posted 49 volunteers to Namibia.
Addressing the volunteers, Osunyinkanmi warned that “never get involved in the hosts’ local politics as that could cause serious embarrassment to you, your host and Nigeria. Don’t get involved in the local politics. Do your best and avoid making comments about the local politics.”
Represented by the director of programmes, Dr. (Mrs.) Oladele Abiodun, the DG advised the volunteers to be good ambassadors of the country and avoid any behaviour capable of tarnishing their integrity and the name of the country.
