The award was presented by University of Ibadan medical students set of 92 during their biennial reunion get-together. “I have received many awards but this is unique because it was presented by my peers with the purest of intentions; no string attached. It will spur me into doing more for the less privileged that are afflicted with facial deformity diseases “declared Dr Seidu Bello. Two other members of the group were equally recognized during the ceremony while others were honored with leadership awards.
