A Healthy December for Market Users

The hustle in this country is real! Every second counts!
So instead of spending hours waiting to see a doctor or nurse, people tend to flip that time into
making some cool cash. Getting people to care about their health without making them feel at a
loss in their businesses is what MTN Foundation is promoting through its MTN Market Doctor
initiative.
MTN Market Doctor is a health initiative of the MTN Foundation aimed at improving access to
health care in Nigeria especially to the underserved population.

Executive Secretary, MTN Foundation, Nonny Ugboma; Director, MTN Foundation, Mr. Dennis Okoro; Super for Health, Surulere, Hon. Oyewole Kolawole; Director, Disease Control, Lagos State Ministry of Health, Dr. Eniola Erinosho (Representing the Governor of Lagos State); Director, MTN Nigeria, Mr. Gbenga Oyebode (MFR) and Founder, Market Doctor, Dr. Yetunde Ayo-Oyalowo at the MTN Market Doctor flag off ceremony in Tejuosho Ultramodern Market, Lagos on Monday, 17th December, 2018

Following a successful outing in selected markets in Rivers State, the Foundation is extending
the happiness to other markets in Lagos. The selected markets include Tejuosho Market, Phase
2, Yaba, Ayangburen Market, Sabo, Ikorodu, Mile 12 Market, Ketu and Folashade Tinubu-Ojo
(FTO), Ebute-Ero Market, Gorodom.


The rush-hour festive shopping was no obstacle as doctors, nurses and pharmacists were
present to make sure everyone was attended to and free drugs were also given to those who
needed them, as prescribed.

One of the beneficiaries, Mrs. Chinelo Adams, while commending MTN Nigeria said “I know
how much I will spend if I go to the hospital but MTN has come to the market to give us free
health check-up and free drugs. We don’t always have time because we are trying to make
money to feed and carry the family, so I say Thank you to MTN Nigeria for this.”
What better way to show care than giving the gift of good health to loved ones.
