The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Niger has commended the efforts of Mr Hamzat Adekunle with state code number NG/19C/1696, for conducting free diabetes tests for 65 persons in the camp.
The state Coordinator of the NYSC, Mrs Funmilayo Ajayi, gave the commendation in Paiko, Niger on Friday.
Ajayi applauded the level of commitment and zeal exhibited by the corps member and urged him to continue with the good work at his place of primary assignment.
