Embrace Daily Physical Exercise, NMA Urges Nigerians 

The wan Nigeria Medical Association, Federal Capital Territory chapter has called on Nigerians to exercise daily to ensure good health.

The Vice Chairman of the chapter, Eno Ekop, gave this charge during the association’s last day of activities to commemorate the 2023 Physicians Week in Abuja.

He noted that physical exercises help ensure good health.

Ekop said the theme of the week “This is Our Chance to Get it Right in the Health Sector”, gave an avenue for doctors to rest, exercise, and give the citizens the necessary medical attention.

According to her, we do this every year to celebrate ourselves and carry out medical services to Nigerians.

“We started the activity on Sunday with a Church mass, Tuesday was the opening ceremony, and we had medical outreach on Thursday to give the citizens medical attention, especially the elderly.

“We focused on the elderly because we know they might not be able to join others for medical outreach.

“We gave eyeglasses, did medical consultation and we will do follow-up.”

She said the association had been carrying out indoor games programmes in previous years but not everyone could participate.

Ekop said that for the indoor games, every member participated, saying, “We have different games like playing card games, table tennis, chess,  ludo, Scrabble, and many others.”
