Monarch Lauds NYSC Healthcare Services for Rural Dwellers
Corps members have been commended for their selflessness in providing free medical services to rural dwellers across the country.
The Osu Ajiri of Edege Kingdom, Alhaji Halilu Bala Usman, gave the commendation when the NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, monitored the ‘Health Initiative’ for rural dwellers in Mararaba Udege Village, in Nasarawa State.
The monarch, in a statement by Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi,
Director, Press and Public Relations of the NYSC, noted that corps members are invaluable assets to national development, and their contributions cannot be underestimated.
“We are really grateful to NYSC because we know the importance of NYSC, and we have benefitted immensely in the education and health sectors. And anyone that knows the importance of NYSC would not think of scrapping the Scheme,” he said.
Brig. Gen. Ibrahim, who was at the venue to monitor the programme, expressed satisfaction about the nationwide exercise.
“Nigerians are responding nationwide and the Corps Members are contributing their quota to national development,” he added.
Ibrahim, during the exercise, also administered deworming drugs on some pupils of Mararaba Udege Community.
