Explaining the NSE’s rationale for throwing its weight behind the race, Mr. Oscar N. Onyema, OON, CEO of NSE, who was ably represented by Ms Tinuade Awe, Executive Director, Regulation , NSE, said during the event that “the cancer epidemic in Nigeria is huge and is set to rise if urgent actions are not taken to raise awareness about early detection of the disease, and to develop practical strategies to address the increasing cancer burden.  The NSE Corporate Challenge was birthed to minimize cancer and maximise life by stimulating additional awareness about cancer, advocating for the importance of early testing/detection and more importantly raising funds towards the purchase of Mobile Cancer Centres to provide free screening and treatment in Nigeria”.
