The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) as part of activities lined up for the Passing out Parade of 64th Regular course, 65th regular course and Short Service Combatant Course 44 Nigerian Army has offered free medical services to member of Mando community in Kaduna state.

The services offered by the academy our correspondent gathered include dental, eye, high blood pressure, diabetes and distribution of mosquito nets.

Our correspondents reports that members of the community trooped into the Mando primary school, venue of the free medical outreach in their hundreds as early as 5am to queue up in anticipation of the exercise.

The commandant of the academy, Major General Mohammed Ibrahim after inspecting the stands where various services were being provided to members of the community said the aim of the outreach is to make available certain services that the academy can afford to its neighbours.

He said the academy as part of efforts to help surrounding communities has sank boreholes, renovated classrooms, planting of trees, providing a transformer and provided free medical services.

He said, “In the spirit of caring for our neighbours because government alone cannot not do it, we decided to organize this free medical outreach to the community. We have to help one another to make life better for each other.

He appealed to the community to continue to relate with the academy in peace and urged them to enroll their children in the academy saying “It is the best legacy you can leave for your children so that they can serve their father land in the position of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

He enjoined them to be their brother’s keeper by reporting any suspicious person or gathering to the security agencies as security cannot be isolated.
