Ambode, Power Oil advocate regular health check for women
As part of efforts aimed at intensifying the advocacy towards a healthy living, especially amongst women in the society, Power Oil, the nation’s leading cooking oil demonstrated its support during the Lagos Women Health Forum, a pet project of the wife of Lagos State governor, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode.
With the theme, ‘Woman: Your Health, Your Social Environment,’ Mrs. 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 optimal performance.
While condemning the spate of social vices in the state, Ambode urged women to voice out their discontent against domestic violence, child abuse, rape and teenage pregnancies.
For the deputy governor, Dr. Idiat Adebule, the forum provided a platform for women to say “enough” to challenges they were facing. “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 and the country,” she said.
Also speaking at the event, the Public Relations Manager, Power Oil, Omotayo Azeez-Abiodun, said the firm is delighted to align with such a commendable health awareness programme as it regards to the women in the society.
“The programme also shares similar values with what the brand stands for – Healthy living and general wellbeing.”
It will be recalled that Power Oil Health Camp is into collaboration with the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development of various states across the country and organises annual health awareness initiatives, which inspire consumers to stay fit and take good care of their health.
