Two ex-students of the Federal College of Dental Technology and Therapy, Enugu, Jane Akudinanwa Agbo, and Rahab Musa, who were among 110 ex-corps members offered automatic employment and postgraduate scholarship to doctoral level on Thursday in Abuja have spoken on their outstanding performances which earned them the awards.
Speaking on her own projects and activities which qualified her for the awards, Agbo said: “I am from Enugu State. I served in Zaria, Kaduna State. I am happy I was conferred this award and I think the major reason is just not because of the services I rendered but because of the humility and impact made in the host community and for that, I am grateful to the community, to the NYSC scheme at large.
“I delivered free oral health care services to over 2,000 almajiris, over 750 elderly people from 50 years and above. I delivered an electrically constructed borehole to my place of primary assignment which is Dental Center, ABUTH, Tudun Wada Zaria.
“For the borehole, I was solely sponsored by Our Career Foundation, a core Muslim foundation, and for the free oral health care, I was sponsored by the Alba Bello Trading Company.”
Also speaking on her own initiative, Musa said: “I am Musa Rahab from Gombe State. I served in Taraba State but I studied Dental Therapy at the Federal School of Dental Technology and Therapy, Enugu.
“I rendered services to the IDPs and the less privileged I met. I gave oral health awareness in the IDP camps and I distributed clothes, I gave them free treatment, tooth paste, tooth brushes.”
