Ahmed stated this on Thursday at the Kwara State College of Education Technical, Lafiagi, Edu Local Government Area of the state.

The governor's wife said that since the beginning of February, series of awareness campaign on dangers of cancer and prevention have been organised, across the 16 local government areas of the state to mark the cancer awareness month.

She said that her visit was part of the ongoing efforts to sensitise students in tertiary institutions in the state on dangers associated with cancer.

She charged the students to establish Anti-Cancer Clubs in their colleges so as to carry the awareness to the next level.

Mrs Ahmed identified early detection as very crucial to survival of the deadly disease.

She noted that "two of her dear persons lost the battle against cancer because it was not detected early".

He identified alcohol, cigarette and lack of physical fitness as risk factors of cancer.

The programme featured simulation on breast examination, as well as questions and answers session.
