Prince of evil, Mr jobless..u are callous, ignorant, insensitive and demonic. Apologise for this statement cos if u have any fear of God in you, you would never make light of sickness or death.

He is probably trying to say a lot of people take medical checkups for granted and they never catch the cancer till its really bad.

Oh dear. This is scary. Lost my dad and one of my favorite secondary school teachers to cancer last year. You think of Steve Jobs, Hugo Chavez, it gets scarier. You think of those who detected it early enough , e.g Tito and Abidal of Barca and pray it does not prove stubborn. RIP Madam.

Sometimes you wonder how easy it is to detect some cancers early, e.g pancreatic, bile duct, ovarian, colon, even throat cancers. Long list when you think of all the parts of the body. According to the Enugu State governor, he was told it was nothing at first.

Anon 9.27, 9.38, 11.58 and others, pls relax. All the dude was trying to say was that people should me more attentive to their health. Cancer doesn't come in a day. It starts as something small and years later, it kills. I feel Prince Jobless was trying to say that Nigerians generally are ignorant when it comes to health issues considering what we are exposed to on a daily basis. May her soul RIP. Amen

I think what Prince Jobless wrote is not that bad, only the way of presentation is casual especially at this trying time for the family of the Dept gov of Ekiti state.

Cancer is one of the worst things that's happened to mankind.
Plz ladies(and guys too) its always advisable to check up atleast once a year. Ever bothered why even the rich with all their money die of cancer? Sometimes its late detection especially cervical cancer(2nd most common) in sexual active women, which does not give any symptom until it's gotten to late Stage 3 or 4.But if detected early can easily be treated and same applies to Breast cancer which is the No.1 killer. Please and please the screening is so cheap and in some places free. Let's not die of ignorance

May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace. It's really sad she died this way. May God almighty grant her family members the fortitude to bear this terrible loss. She was a good woman.
