Abuja - Ekiti State First Lady, Feyisetan Fayose, has paid the bills for comprehensive health screening for wives of chairmen in the 16 council areas of the state.
She said that the exercise was aimed at assisting the women to live a healthy lifestyle and save from untimely death.
Fayose said the gesture would be extended to women at the grass roots and advised women to take issues relating to their health seriously.
She also charged women to visit the hospital, at least once in a year for them to be checked and tested in necessary areas to detect any likelihood of breast cancer.

She promised on behalf of her colleagues that they would extend the exercise to other women in rural areas.
