The NYSC Ondo State Coordinator, Mrs. Victoria Nnenna Ani has admonished corps members to continue to give their best so that the outcome of their commitment and sacrifice will be nothing short of the best.
The State Coordinator made this admonition when the corps medical professionals of the 2022 Batch ‘A’ (Stream 1) service year made a presentation of electric sterilizer to the management of the Scheme in the Sunshine State.
Mrs. Ani said she was not surprised that the medical team are investing into the Camp Clinic as it has become the tradition of the ‘life-saver professionals’ to exhibit the training they received for the service to humanity.
“It is universally known and empirically accepted that those in the medical field believed in the sanctity of human lives and what you have done today is a demonstration that you value lives beyond comprehension”.
The Coordinator said that the corps medical professionals should accept to serve their fatherland wherever they are posted for the primary assignment stressing that the nation has placed enormous responsibility on them to give their best to save lives.
“On behalf of the Director General of the Scheme, Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim, an Associate Professor and Fellow, Historical Society of Nigeria, and the entire NYSC family nationwide, I want to appreciate your immense contributions in diverse ways since you arrived the camp almost three weeks ago.
“You have done marvellously well because reports reaching me indicates that you have been professionally managing all the cases at the clinic without referral, a feat which has placed you among the best in your chosen fields,” she said.
In her goodwill message, the Camp Director, Mrs. Adejoke Ayodele Fashola thanked the corps medical personnel for professionally managing the patients in spite of mood swings and irrational behaviours of majority of corps members.
The Camp Director who was represented by her Deputy, Mr. Francis Oladele Adebayo acknowledged the untiring efforts of the professionals who stay awake most times to treat patients when their colleagues are already asleep.
The resident medical officer from the Federal Medical Centre, Owo, Dr. Olamilekan Joseph Adetula reminded his junior colleagues about their roles to the society and charged them to continue to work as a team.
Dr. Adetula noted and acknowledged with high degree of appreciation the manner in which drugs and other medical equipment were judiciously managed.
The Corps Medical Director, Dr. Stephen Anzaku disclosed that the medical professionals in the camp decided to invest in the electric steriliser to ensure that clinically, all equipment are safe for use.
He said the equipment would enhance all the processes needed to achieve proper sterilisation and allay all fears of improper treatment of hospital and clinical equipment.
The Head, Camp Clinic, Mrs. Mosunmola Omolara Alo thanked the State Coordinator for her motherly roles and for the huge investment committed to making the clinic one of the best in the country.
She said she was proud of the corps medical personnel because of the way they are working as a team and promised to continue to provide leadership for the corps members.
