20 May 2015, 08:21Augustine Osayande

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.

Dr Bolanle Solanke,who was guest speaker at the programme, said the test would include breast, cervix, abdominal and heart-related tests.

Solanke advised women to be conscious of their body, so as to report to health practitioners any changes in their system.

The wife of Ado-Ekiti Local Government Council, Funke Ajise, thanked the governor’s wife for the gesture.

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