Dr (Mrs.) Idia Ize-Iyamu, wife of the PDP candidate, has said that the true liberation of Edo people from the burden of hunger and ill health would begin with the less privileged, especially women.

Dr. (Mrs.) Ize-Iyamu, a consultant orthodontist and senior lecturer, Preventive Dentistry at the University of Benin stated this in Auchi yesterday, saying that women and children were the first victims of misgovernance.

She noted that it was the fundamental duty of a responsible government to identify itself with the hopes and aspirations of the people.
Conducting a free cervical cancer screening for women in Fate Medical Centre, Auchi, she said the measure would go a long way in helping to reduce the burden of medical care in the state just as she also conducted free medical treatment to detect high blood pressure and related ailments peculiar to women.

She implored all women in the state to come out en masse to cast their votes for her husband saying the PDP government would accord more priority to the healthcare of the people. She observed that the closing down of the State School of Nursing and lack of basic facilities in government hospitals had brought untold hardship to the people.
