The governor’s wife said this on Monday in an interview with newsmen in Abuja.

“To most people, treatment of cancer can be expensive but the need to create awareness for early dictation will go a long way to ensure prevention and spread of the disease,’’ she said.

She commended the wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, for committing her time and resources to fighting cancer in Nigeria.

According to Bagudu, the wife of the President through her `Future Assured’ programme provided medical outreach for the treatment of women and children suffering from cervical and breast related cancer diseases in Nigeria.
