The Lagos State University on Friday took a free medical screening programme to Ikorodu North Local Council Development Area, with over 300 residents benefiting.
The screening was put together by the LASU Directorate of Advancement.
Blood pressure checkups, blood glucose, HIV test, hepatitis B test, eye screening, breast cancer screening, cervical screening and prostate cancer screening were carried out on beneficiaries.
The Director, LASUDA, Prof. Yinka Okubena –
Dipeolu, in her remarks, appreciated the Chairman of Ikorodu North LCDA for embracing the health programme.
Okubena-Dipeolu said that it was the first LCDA that single-handedly funded the health programme.
“In most cases, the LASU will always support other local governments, but for Ikorodu North LCDA, the Chairman paid the bills.
“We have done this health programme in Ikeja, now Ikorodu and the next one will be in Epe by next week,” she said.
Mr. Adeola Banjo, Chairman, Ikorodu North LCDA, said the council was committed to ensuring that the people had easy access to health care services.
Banjo said that the LCDA was also creating more awareness of the need for regular health checks in the community.
“My people, do take care of yourselves and live well.
“We thank LASU’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, members of LASUDA team and the entire university community for the great opportunity given to the LCDA to host the special event for the people,” he said.
