As part of activities to mark World Diabetes Day, the Olusegun Obasanjo Foundation has unveiled its free diabetes screening campaign for 10 million Nigerians.

The diabetes screening campaign team, according to a statement is expected to move from state to state for the next twelve months, screening Nigerians for diabetes free of charge and also offer counselling and survival tips to those who test positive to the disease.

The Founder/Chairman Board of Trustees, Olusegun Obasanjo Foundation, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, said, “For me, this is a dream come true as it has always been something I have always longed for and today, it has become a reality. There is no better way to mark this year’s World Diabetes Day than to lend a helping hand to those suffering from the disease.”

“Being a diabetic patient myself for many years, I understand the pains and challenges people suffering from the disease are faced with on a daily basis that is why we have thought it wise to launch this campaign to ameliorate the sufferings of an average Nigerian who cannot access the basic health need to manage the disease.

“Like I would always say, diabetes is not a death sentence. With early detection and the right kind of information, people should be able to manage the disease and live a healthy lifestyle for as long as God wish to keep them. Information is key and that is one thing we hope to achieve with this campaign, equipping people with relevant information about the disease.”
