COVID-19: William Gyang & Nura Jibrin Repair 3 'Scrap' Ventilators In Jos by PlateauNews(f): 9:35pm On Apr 01
As the Covid-19 pandemic rages on, many have succumbed to the temptation of the blame game. They blame government, health workers and others for the lack of adequate preparation to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

They forget that blaming others at this point will not help us as the scourge is already upon us. However, there are still some who are thinking of how or what they can contribute to this fight with their skills.

One of such persons is Williams Gyang .

As we get worked up with the inadequate number of ventilators we have, he called to tell me how he wants to construct a ventilator to increase the numbers we have in Plateau State.

Being that he was no health personnel, he wanted to see how a ventilator operates and if he could get some parts from spoilt or "scrapped" ventilators.

We went to the Jos University Teaching Hospital(JUTH) and thankfully, the JUTH leadership gave him a chance. He was shown ventilators that were spoilt and even considered as "scraps".

To cut the long story short, himself and his friend Nura Jibrin were able to fixed 3 ventilators that were not working before.
This increased the number of ventilators in JUTH to 6.

In a resources limited setting like ours, this is no mean feat. What Williams Gyang and Nura Jibrin did is what I pray every Nigerian will do. This pandemic calls for unity among us in order to win. Think of what you can contribute to this fight against the pandemic with your gifts or skills. This pandemic is on us and blaming government will not help us.

I write this to celebrate Williams Gyang and Nura Jibrin who are motivated to live a life of contribution and make a difference in the society.

They are not thinking of material gain but seeking to make a difference on humanity.

I am appealing to Plateau State Government to look within to get a pool of innovators, artisans, scientists and researchers to help in this fight against COVID-19.

In addition, I want to profusely thank the CMD (Prof Edmond Banwat) and CMAC (Dr Pokop Bupwatda) of JUTH for taking a chance on Williams and Nura.

WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR YOUR STATE AND COUNTRY?!

God bless him .. this is what those billionaires should have done.. physical donations that we can see not the ones that will be embezzled by those bastard politicians. Nigeria has only four hundred ventilators for a population of over 200m and half of them has already been booked for prominent people. God bless the guy once again and anybody that attempts to make money illegally of this Corona virus will die a terrible death along his family members

That's the spirit we talk about.

We can't keep complaining but we must act.
Demonstrate what you can do and see how your society prospers.

As your society prospers, so do you.

Kudos young man.

Watch how he would start having many engagements on the basis of this.

These are the real people making contribution, not all those politicians transferring audio money from their current account to their savings account.

No doubt that Nigeria has many untapped innovators and investors but they are lost in the crowd trying to make ends meet because there is no platform for them to discover their calling. I believe that the boys in Aba can even build this thing from the scratch if you give them a a sample and enough equipment
