Corper Builds Healthcare Centre At Kwali In Abuja
A unique "corper" identifies the needs of his community, he draws up a proposal, showed it to his Local Government Inspector. The LGI looked at the project, ascertained if its a worthy course, approved it and now this community will remember Dr. Okeke Kanayo, more than they would remember their Local Government Chairman if ever there is one in Kwali Abuja
In order to reduce the rate of maternal mortality, Dr. Okeke Kanayo, a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in Kwali area council, against all odds, built a healthcare center valued at N3.9 million in Fula community of the council.
Speaking at the commissioning yesterday, Kanayo said the health center, which has five rooms including a consulting room, waiting room, nurses’ station, dispensary room, emergency and recovery room would bring some respite to people of the community who often had to travel long distances to access medical care.
Chairman of The council, Mr. Joseph Shazin Kwali who commissioned the project assured of protection and sustainability of the project.
Shazin who was represented by the supervisory councilor for Works and Housing, Mr Danjuma Dauda, offered immediate employment to the corps member after the completion of his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and called for an award to be bestowed on him.
