During this year, we had the opportunity to visit and engage with various prominent organizations in Plateau State. Our group’s itinerary included visiting some of the most noteworthy institutions in the state, such as the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, the Nigerian Medical Association Plateau State Chapter, MDCAN, the Special Task Force (STF), and the Chief Medical Director at Jos University Teaching Hospital. Our primary objective for these visits was to foster amicable and pleasant relations with these organizations.

We were particularly keen on understanding their operations and learning more about the work they do, while also exchanging ideas on how we can establish collaborative ventures with them in the future. We were greeted with open arms, and the staff went out of their way to ensure our experience was both enriching and enjoyable. Overall, our visit to these esteemed organizations was undoubtedly one of the highlights of our year, and we look forward to further nurturing these important relationships.
