For going beyond the call of duty, the Lagos State National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has honoured two doctors deployed to serve in the Batch C Stream II which completed its orientation programme on Wednesday.

In his speech at the closing ceremony held at the Iyana Ipaja camp, the Lagos State NYSC Coordinator Prince Mohammed Momoh told how Dr Onyedikachi Anya and Dr Olawale Ogedengbe volunteer to accompany a corps member who had a crisis to the hospital and ended up saving his life when his heart stopped in transit.

“I want to specially commend the two corps medical doctors, Dr Anya Onyedikachi and Dr Ogedengbe Olawale, whose selfless and timely intervention saved the life of their fellow corps member who was being rushed to the hospital in our ambulance. They voluntarily took up this assignment despite the fact that they were not on duty at the time of the incidence,” he said.

On the trip to the Orile Agege General Hospital, Momoh said the patient had a seizure and his heart stopped. He was resuscitated by Anya and Ogedengbe.

The duo got letters of commendation and cash gifts, and Momoh also said they could win state/national awards at the end of their service year if they meet other conditions.

Some other camp officials and corps members who distinguished themselves during the orientation programme were also recognised. They included: Zaccheus Olubiyi (best NYSC Camp official); Camp Commandant, Major G.E John (best non-NYSC camp official); Prisca Ekenomo (outstanding camp official); Mrs Olayinka Ogunfuwa (best platoon inspector); and Odunaiya Adeola, an officer attached to the National Civil Defence Corps.

Corps member Adesegun Adebayo Adeosun, was recognised for his active participation in camp activities, especially being instrumental in getting some celebrities to visit the corps members in camp.

As they continued to their places of primary assignment, Momoh warned the corps members against making unauthorised trips, especially during the yuletide.

He said failure to keep to the rules would attract sanctions.

In his speech, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, Dr Yusuf Jimoh, advised the corps members to take skills acquisition and entrepreneurship development (SAED) training of the NYSC seriously so they could attract grants to start businesses.

“Here in Lagos State, we have a standing tradition of empowering corps members who have performed exceptionally in the course of the SAED training with loans and grants from the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund which was primarily established to empower youths to start up their businesses,” he said.

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
