The campaign, carried out in collaboration with Mbegir Humanitarian Initiative, and which event was held in Kafanchan on Wednesday, included the screening of over 2,000 women and girls.

According to Amos, the initiative was a sustained effort to secure the health of his constituents and to sensitise women and girls on the dangers associated with breast and cervical cancer.

The street campaign was yet another free medical outreach undertaken by the National Assembly Member in his constituency.

In the words of Amos, “I am committed to issues concerning the health of women and girls to ensure a healthy society while advising them not to see scourge as a dead sentence.

 

“Detected cases during the screening that have not gone far would be treated while i urge the women to avail themselves of the opportunity provided the screening exercise to know their status.”

The leader of the screening team, Rahap Elisha, explained that the essence of the campaign was to raise awareness, give the women knowledge on how to check breast cancer, and encourage especially younger girls to get screened for early detection of those who have the disease.

In a goodwill message, the Commissioner of Kafanchan Municipal Authority, Phoebe Sukai Yayi, educated that only regular checks will help detect cases of cancer early, thereby enhancing early treatment.

The Commissioner who hailed the green chamber lawmaker over what she described as a rare initiative, emphasised that cancer was a disease common to all, irrespective of sex differences.

Arewa PUNCH reports that the road walk cancer awareness campaign which was observed along the Kafanchan main road, took the campaign team to the palace of the Emir of Jama’a, Alhaji Muhammadu Isa Muhammadu, who gave his royal blessings to the exercise.
