NPA organises cervical cancer screening for workers

Managing Director, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Mallam Habib Abdullahi, has said that his management team is fully committed to improving the well being of the organisation’s workforce.

Abdullahi said this last Monday while flagging off the awareness programme against cervical cancer, targeted at screening vaccination and treatment for female workers.

Represented at the event held at the organisation’s Corporate Headquarters in Lagos by the General Manager, Administration, Chief Michael Ajayi, Abdullahi commended the NPA’s medical department for embarking on awareness campaigns on various health-related issues aimed at enhancing good living.

While giving an assurance that he will continue to give the medical department the necessary support it requires to function optimally, he appealed to all employees to avail themselves of opportunities provided by the exercise by listening and effective participation.


Earlier in a welcome address, the Assistant General Manager Medical, Dr. Chinwe Abama, listed the benefits of the awareness programme to include improved knowledge, decrease in manpower/manhour loss due to death or absenteeism, decrease in medical bills and enhancement of productive and efficient workforce.

General Manager, Western Ports of NPA, Miss Adenike Sonaike and other top management staff attended the event.
