The Director-General of the National Institute for Cancer Research and Treatment (NICRAT), Prof. Usman Aliyu, has assured Nigerians of improved cancer research and treatment.
He said this in Abuja as he congratulated the Muslim Ummah for the successful completion of the Ramadan fast.
He specifically congratulated cancer patients, their relatives, doctors working in the cancer space, health advocates and NGOs, wishing them many more returns of such a blessed season.
“I am assuring all Nigerians of the preparedness of NICRAT to improve cancer research and treatment in the days ahead.
“I am, therefore, using this opportunity to call on Nigerians to take their health seriously and go for regular checks.
“This will nip in the bud any disease, especially cancer before it reaches an uncontrollable stage.”
According to him, cancer is treatable and curable, especially when detected early.
He urged Nigerians to visit a nearby health facility for checks whenever they noticed any abnormal feelings in their bodies.
“I urge the Muslim Ummah to imbibe the lessons learnt during the Ramadan period and continue to remain supportive to cancer patients and their relatives.
“This is necessary because cancer treatment and management is capital intensive,” he said.
