    According to Punch, “Nigeria Labour Congress, inpartnership with the International Labour Organisation, offered free medical services to residents of Ndakwo community, beside Sunny Vale, Abuja on Saturday.

    “The NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, told newsmen that the essence of the outreach was to give back to the society and carry out part of the congress’s social responsibility. Represented by Chairman, National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives, FCT Chapter, Deborah Yusuf, Wabba said the outreach was the fifth in FCT.

    He said, “NLC is standing in for Nigerian workers, and then in collaboration with ILO, this is a special outreach; this is the fifth time we are organising community outreach, it is all about giving back to the society. “It is part of our Corporate Social Responsibilities. We have workers everywhere, we are trying to give back to them, including their relations.

    “This outreach is very important and it is coming at this particular period not because of anything but we learnt that the people really need medical assistance.”

    “Wabba said that they had various stations for registration and screening for HIV/AIDS, adding that it was important that people knew their HIV status.

    He stated “that the group also educates people about knowing their HIV status, negative or positive, and to know that being positive is not a death sentence.

    “According to him, if anyone turns out positive, NLC will take the person to a referral centre and follow-up so that the person will be placed on drugs and necessary investigations.”
