WHAT WE DO
This is a flagship service of the NDC in view of the growing need in society especially in the last twenty (20) years of an army of destitute, angry, usually hungary, with little or no education, a near total absence of marketable skills, with a propensity to violence and usually hooked, on narcotic drugs and dislocated from core and extended family and living on and off the streets of Lagos, Port-Harcourt, Freetown, Monrovia, New York, Hochi Minh City.
