The Flag off was done at Ika South Local Government Secretariat by the Executive Chairman who was represented by his Vice, Hon. Mrs. Agboma. She thanked the Presidents and members of the Rotary Clubs involved in this kind gesture, adding that the exercise was in tune with the Delta State Governor’s agenda “Healthcare For All Deltans”.
She pleaded for extension of the exercise to enable more persons in the rural areas to benefit from the programme.
In same vein, the Chairman of Ika North-East Local Government who was represented by his deputy, Hon. Mrs. Kelechukwu, thanked Rotarians and urged the people of the local government to take advantage of this opportunity to get tested.
The highlight of the occasion was testing and rendering counseling services to the mammoth crowd that turned out for the event at no cost to them.
