While speaking at the event, the Chief Executive Officer of Dreg Waters Petroleum and Logistics, Damilola Owolabi expressed concerns about the rate at which cervical cancer takes the life of women in society. “Most women are unaware that cervical cancer is totally preventable, all they need to do is to check regularly and keep being healthy,” she noted.

Owolabi further explained that, “At Dreg Waters, we appreciate the value that women add to our community, as such we are delighted to partner with Exquisite Magazine Annual Cancer Event (EMAC) on the “Smearit” project to provide free cervical cancer screening and awareness to the women of Agege, Lagos.”
