Nigerians have been encouraged to always ensure regular medical check-up to confirm thPersonseir health status to reduce the incidence of sudden death in the country.
The advice was given by Chief Toyin Amuzu during a free Community medical service, organised by the Toyin Amuzu Support Group, where no fewer than 300 people benefitted, as part of its activities to enhance healthy living, for residents of Abeokuta South Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The free medical service held at Ijaye, had professionals who conducted checks on the beneficiaries, to assess their sugar level, blood pressure, and other ailments.
Some of those attended to, were giving needed medications, while those with major complications were referred to the hospital.
Chief Toyin Amuzu in his message, said the level of death arising from failure to conduct medical check-up has risen, due to lack of finances thus the need to support the people.
According to him, “the normal thing is to regularly check-up ones body to know the status of our body, but these days, many are struggling to eat three, square meal and do not have money to take proper care of their health, and now it has become necessary to be our brother’s keeper”.
“We all have to rise to create a better society for ourselves and nip in the bud the many deaths and violence arising from lack of care and love for our fellow humans” , Chief Amuzu said.
He promised to continue the medical service programme and also come up with other intervention programmes within his capacity, to alleviate the sufferings of the people and make life meaningful for many.
Some of the beneficiaries expressed their joy at the health intervention programme which they said has come at a time when things are so hard in the country.
They thanked Chief Amuzu for his magnanimity, praying that God will continue to bless him.
Chief Toyin Amuzu is also the founder and Chairman of the Toyin Amuzu Foundation.
