Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi

Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi, has said the Funmi Olayinka  Cancer Diagnostic Centre, Ado Ekiti will be ready in October.

A statement on Sunday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Olayinka Oyebode, confirmed the date.

Fayemi reportedly made the promise in Ibadan on Saturday at  the 60th birthday lecture of Mrs. Betty Akeredolu,  wife of the Action Congress of Nigeria Governorship candidate in Ondo State, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN).

The centre is named after the Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Mrs. Funmi Olayinka, who died on April 6 after a battle with breast cancer.

Fayemi expressed the confidence that the centre would offer citizens access to modern facilities  where they would be screened of cancer.

He said the centre would be equipped with mammogram and other necessary equipment as well as experts in oncology.

Stressing that Ekiti State was committed to the well-being of its citizens, Fayemi  said the state government  had a few months ago conducted free cancer screening for its citizens  to enable them to know their cancer status.

He urged governments at all levels in the country to focus on primary health care, noting that it remained the fastest and the easiest way of detecting cancer and other diseases.
