As part of our efforts to revitalise the health sector and ensure that our people are in good shape, we have decided to offer free hepatitis tests, counselling and vaccination to the good people of Ogun State across the 20 Local Government Areas. We made this known at an event organised by my wife, H.E, Mrs. @mrsbamideleabiodun, an ambassador of World Hepatitis Zero. She was joined by the Deputy Governor, H.E Engr (Mrs.) @noimot.oyedele.
Yesterday at the Primary Healthcare Centre, Sango, we initiated steps to ensure the outright elimination of the virus from our communities. Hepatitis is a silent virus that affects the liver and ultimately results in liver cancer. This is why rather than wait for it to get to us, we are taking proactive measures towards curbing its existence amidst us.
