Market men, women don’t take care of their health- MTN

 

The Director of MTN Nigeria, Mr Gbenga Oyebode, has said that traders in the country’s marketplace do not have time to take care of their health.

Oyebode made the remark during the launch of Easy Health Access Project (EHAP), also known as MTN Market Doctors’, in Lagos

The director expressed concern that many people, particularly those in the marketplace, didn’t have time to care for themselves, leading to health complications.

“Men and women in our markets don’t have time to take care of themselves. This is what allows simple health issues to become complicated.

“The goal is to provide medical assessment and treatment for malaria, hypertension, diabetes, aches and pains,” Oyebode said.

Outgoing Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, in his remarks, advised residents, especially traders, to adopt moderate lifestyle so as to achieve good healthy living.

The governor who was represented by the Director of Disease Control, Lagos State, Dr Eniola Erinosho, said attaining good health status was feasible  through moderate lifestyle changes.

“Behavioural modifications include avoidance of smoking completely, including limiting exposure to smoke as passive smoking is very dangerous.

“Avoiding in-between meals, reducing alcohol intake, eating of balanced meals, fruits and foods that are in season.

“Drink at least three litres of water every day, reduce excessive sugar intake, eat less of  heavily spiced foods, fast and salted foods and avoid risky sexual exposure,” Ambode added.

The governor explained that maintaining a normal body weight, engagement in regular aerobic activities, such as brisk walking and undergoing regular health screening could help to prevent health complications.

Also, Health Portfolio Manager, MTN Foundation, Mr Nwaeke Peter, said the project was a pilot programme which had already started in Rivers.

Peter said: “Research, over the years have shown that mothers, who ply their trade in the marketplace do not have enough time to leave their wares and go to the hospital.

“Even when they go, the cost of healthcare is a bit on the high side.

“So we decided to bring doctors, nurses, pharmacists to the market so they can check their vital signs, basic health diagnosis and provide medication to them free.”

The Director, MTN Foundation, Mr Dennis Okoro, said that the scheme would also hold at Mile 12 Market, Ketu; Ayangburen Market, Ikorodu and Folashade Tinubu Ojo, Gorodom in Lagos Island.

Okoro said the programme would end on Thursday.

Director, MTN Market Doctor, Mr Taiwo Oshinusi, said the programme was also aimed at taking care of the needs of the patients.

According to Oshinusi: “We found out that when medical outreach like this is done and medications given for about two weeks.

“After two weeks, the people fall back to their old lifestyle and don’t comply with recommendations given to them because they can’t afford it.

“We have opened up clinics in the market as follow-up centres to monitor them until we see improvements,” he said.

The ‘MTN Market Doctors’ was organised by MTN Foundation in collaboration with Lagos State Government.

The event was a medical outreach focused on providing free healthcare to market men and women and their wards.

  5. She flicked off the lights and pushed him against the wall. A frame fell face down on the floor and shattered next to them. She didn’t allow him to take notice. She bit at his bottom lip, tugging his face, commanding him to follow her lead as she walked backwards down the hallway, deeper into the darkness, her darkness. And he, submitting to her bestial strength, simply weaved his fingers into the rust of her hair and bowed to her dominion. Like a lowly, unassuming insect, captivated by her hellfire glow.

    Halfway down the hall, she slammed him back first into the wall again, harder than before — no frames there that time. She clawed at his chest under his shirt as she ate his kiss once more and bit down his neck; the groans he breathed out into the obscurity flinched sharply as her fangs grew less and less forgiving.

    His buckle caught the flash of lamplight seeping in from somewhere outside as she tugged at the leather strap of his belt. She ran her fingers up and back down the front of his chest, back down to his waist, and unclasped his belt, plucking it from the loops with a single sliding pull. Feverishly, she tore his pants open and moved them, along with his boxers, down just enough to reveal his smug erection. With both palms on his board-firm chest, she smirked at him, kissed him once more, a little softer than before, and squatted down before him.

  26. “Enough!” He (I presumed) walked up to me, demonstrating that I had a head of height in advantage, and gestured imperiously for Bekhat to move away from me. Given the circumstances, what could she do but obey? As she did so, a pair of the brutes moved from their line to flank her, though they did nothing more.

    The little man drew from one sleeve a small stick, looking as though he had pulled it from a bush to scrape his teeth on his way over, and dragged it along the ground in a circle around me. As he completed the circle he spat on the joining and straightened again.

    I grew alarmed as he drew a small knife from somewhere or other, but he only cut his own finger and splashed a few drops on to the dust. “Now, creature,” he said, looking me in the eyes at last. “Simply walk over my circle, return to your home, prove me wrong, and we shall trouble you no more.”
