Lagos to establish mobile cancer centre

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on
Thursday accepted the offer to raise funds toward
the establishment of Mobile Cancer Centre for
treatment of people who require such treatment,
just as he expressed absolute commitment to
providing efficient health care service delivery to all
residents of the State.

The Governor spoke at the Lagos House, Ikeja, when
he played host to the Board of Committee
Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy led by its
convener and first female Chief Executive Officer
of a publicly quoted company in Nigeria, Mrs. Adetutu

While lauding the initiative, Governor Ambode said his
personal philosophy and personality was all about
making life meaningful to the people and make
positive impact in the society.

The CECP is co-promoted by the core bodies of the
Organized Private Sector and its main aim is to
compliment the development effort of government
by promoting the practice of collective philanthropy.

The CECP has also been at the vanguard of
galvanizing individuals and corporate organizations
toward donating for the building of Mobile Cancer
Centres across the country.

Governor Ambode, who described the initiative of
the group as very laudable and selfless considering
the focus on the health sector, assured of his
readiness and commitment to support the course
which the CECP has decided to take on, especially in
raising funds towards the building of a Mobile Cancer
Centre in Lagos.
