September 14, 2021; Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, Nigeria.
Chief Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, hosted the OCI Foundation’s National Champion, Rev Dr Austin Epunam (also the Founder of the Sweet Home Africa Humanitarian Foundation), and Dr Godwin Maduka (an American-based Nigerian philanthropist). The OCI Foundation has associated with Dr Maduka in the past, and is wroking towards a longer-term partnership with his Foundation.
Also in attendance was Mr. Alex Nwankwo, a PR expert and Personal Assistant to Dr Maduka.
The OCI Foundation is expanding its efforts in engaging stakeholders and partners, ahead of the national flag-off of its “Arm Our Youths Health Campaign”, which is a novel, Harvard-endorsed, WHO-supported and evidence-based health promotion initiative of the OCI Foundation, which seeks to introduce anti-breast and anti-cervical cancer programs into the regular activities of the NYSCs orientation activities across Nigeria.
The Campaign also aims to include preventive teachings into the academic curriculum of all senior secondary schools in all of Nigeria’s 36 states (and the FCT) by 2025. When fully implemented, this will be a novel way of tackling the two cancers, and significantly contributes to the global eradication of cervical cancer.
