Over 2,000 women drawn from various locations in the South East geopolitical zone, yesterday, converged at Queens Secondary School Enugu where President Muhammad Buhari’s wife, Aisha launched a one-day free health screening initiative programme .
The initiative, powered by Government of Enugu through Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s wife, Monica, seeks to entrench health care consciousness in women through advocacy, screening and boosting of primary health care centre facilities in Enugu State.
Buhari’s wife, who was accompanied by wife of Vice President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, inspected service provider’s outlet, who rendered blood pressure, blood sugar, kidney function, dental and eye checks service to women, who thronged to benefit from the exercise.
While flagging-off the free health screening initiative, Mrs. Buhari described her husband’s administration as a government of unity.
According to her: “You are in safe hands. I am glad that we are gathered here with governors’ wives for this programme. It is a voluntary health agency rendering free health care services.
