Aradel Holdings Plc, Nigeria’s leading integrated and indigenous energy Company, recently commissioned a breast cancer screening room extension at Care Organization Public Enlightenment (C.O.P.E), a non-profit Organisation, based in Ikeja, Lagos.

The screening rooms were donated by Aradel Holdings Plc to C.O.P.E, in recognition of their sterling work in making free cancer screening available to women in the hope that early detection will facilitate more effective treatment. C.O.P.E is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation, established and registered in 1995 as a comprehensive breast cancer resource provider for women.

In attendance from C.O.P.E was Ebunola Anozie- Founder and CEO who said “On behalf of the Board of COPE, we appreciate Aradel Holdings Plc for their support and partnership. The new facility will enable more women to be screened, at a faster pace, which will achieve the goals of C.O.P.E to save lives”. Other representatives of C.O.P.E were Temilola Adepetun- Vice – Chairwoman, Mike Osime – Trustee, Hector Etomi – Patron and Sola Oyetayo – Auditor. After the building was commissioned, the facility was toured and a plaque acknowledging Aradel’s partnership was unveiled in the C.O.P.E hall of fame.

The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Aradel, Adegbite Falade in his speech, said “A timely cancer diagnosis is key as cancer detected at an early stage, is more likely to be treated successfully, and women can go on to live full and meaningful lives. These screening rooms will provide a convenient, safe and dedicated space for breast cancer screening, where women can be quickly diagnosed. I commend the work of Mrs Anozie, C.O.P.E Founder and CEO and the entire Board of C.O.P.E for their excellent work and determination to help women with breast cancer in Nigeria”. Aradel was further represented by Temitayo Ogunbanjo – General Manager Refineries, Damilola Yahaya – Corporate Business Planning/ Value Lead, Bukola Beecroft, Business Improvement Lead and Olubukola Amodu, Financial Accountant.
