Donor Day: Blood Service Commission Holds Awareness Walk

Nigerians have been reminded to always donate blood voluntarily as an act of service to humanity.

National Blood Service Commission, Southwest Acting Zonal Director, Dr Awonranti Oladapo, stated this in Ibadan when he led a road walk to mark the first Edition of National Blood Donor Day.

Dr Awonranti explained that the uniqueness of National Blood donor day was to raise consciousness and a stronger awareness of the importance of blood donation in saving lives. 

He noted that the approval of National Blood Donor Day in Nigeria came at the right time and that it would enable Nigerians to access quality blood when there was a need.

Speaking on the challenges encountered to get blood which included the economy, the medical expert said that hunger should not be a yardstick, as there would be screening to know if someone was fit to donate blood.

President of the Rotary Club of Ibadan Prestige, Mr Olusola Obafemi enjoined Nigerians to donate blood as it could be useful to save people’s life at any time in need.

The road walk started at Total Garden and terminated at Gate.
