Nigerian medical student honoured in India.

Nuhu Ibrahim

Nuhu Ibrahim, a Nigerian medical student at the Nims University, India, on Sunday won the ‘Global Youth Awards 2016’ at the Third World Youth Conference in India.

Mr. Ibrahim was recognized by the conference for the work of his foundation, Alabura Foundation, in Bauchi State and other parts of north-east Nigeria.

The foundation provides healthcare facilities to lacking communities and persons displaced by violence in north-east Nigeria.

Youth organizations from 97 countries around the globe attended the ceremony this year.

Appreciating the recognition, Mr. Ibrahim called on youth groups to intensify efforts in helping the less-privileged people living in their communities, especially on health-related issues.

“I’m glad that most of the youth leaders across the globe present in the conference are inspired with the Alabura Foundation activities. I also encourage those who haven’t started community work in their various countries to start.

“My advice to all is that: Set your mind and start working on any of the sustainable development goals, so that no one should be left behind,” Mr. Ibrahim.
