Brand, forum partner on regular health check for women
As part of efforts aimed at intensifying the advocacy drive for healthy living and other wellbeing measures amongst women, Power Oil showed its support for Lagos Women Health Forum, a project of First Lady of Lagos State, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode. The programme attracted Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr. Idiat Adebule, wife of the first civilian governor of Lagos State, Abimbola Jakande, Senior Special Assistant to the President Buhari on Sustainable Development Goals, Mrs. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire, Lagos State Head of Service, Mrs. Folasade Adesoye amongst others.
With the theme ‘Woman…Your Health, Your Social Environment,’ Ambode noted that sound health is one of life’s greatest blessings, hence the need to encourage and educate the women to always live in good health for long life and for optimal performance in all aspects of life.
According to her, “Good health is the gateway to everything. To have good health, we need to take care of our body, mind and soul. It is when we have good health that we can run around for business and engage in other activities.”
While also condemning the spate of social vices in the state, Ambode urged the women to voice out their discontent with domestic violence, child abuse, rape and teenage pregnancies.
Deputy Governor, Adebule, said the forum provides a platform for women to say “enough” to challenges they were facing, noting, “We should no longer be stereotyped into silence but become vocal advocates for an improved health delivery system and social justice for women in Lagos State and the country.”
Also, Public Relations Manager, Power Oil, Omotayo Azeez–Abiodun, said Power Oil is delighted to align with such a commendable health awareness and general wellbeing programme and particularly with regard to the women in the society, adding that the programme happens to share similar values with what the brand stands for – “Healthy Living and general well being.’
“Because of the multifunctional nature of women,” Azeez–Abiodun said, “they equally deserve being in a healthy state in order to carry out their duties efficiently, which is one of the reasons it is recommended they take advantage of the free health check-up and medical consultation opportunity, which Power Oil health camp offers.”
