Nigeria: Women Affairs Ministry Endorses Power Oil Project

The Federal Ministry of Women Affairs & Social Development has endorsed Power Oil health project and promised to render the needed support as long as it continued in the quest to put the interest of the society first.

The Director, Women & Gender Affairs of the ministry, Mrs. Annetu-Anne Aliu, gave the endorsement at the flag-off ceremony of the project at the ministry's secretariat, Abuja.

Her words: "Worthy of commendation is the fact that Raffles Oil Enterprise, makers of Power Oil, as part of its corporate social responsibilities, in line with the Federal Government Public Private Partnership policies, had conducted a survey which revealed that high percentage of lives, Nigerian women in particular, had been lost due to lack of awareness in getting and accessing basic medical information and regular health check-ups."

Speaking at the event, Public Relations Manager, Power Oil, Mrs. Omotayo Azeez-Abiodun, said: "The health programme has been consistently going on for more than three years at various states across the nation.

"We are delighted to eventually get the attention and support of the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs & Social Development. It clearly shows we are moving on the right track."
