Power Oil cares for your heart: First-of-its-kind medical outreach on waters


Power Oil, Nigeria’s leading vegetable oil brand, continues its unwavering commitment to the health and well-being of Nigerians. Through a series of educational and basic medical outreach programs, Power Oil aims to enlighten, inform, and educate communities, particularly in areas with limited access to proper healthcare and information.

For years, Power Oil has been at the forefront of initiatives aimed at enlightening, informing, and educating communities across Nigeria about the importance of heart health, proper nutrition, and adopting a wholesome lifestyle. Recognizing the lack of access to essential health information in certain communities, Power Oil has taken steps to bridge this gap. Through initiatives like Power Oil Cares for Your Heart, the brand is extending this initiative to the water community of Makoko.

This initiative marks a significant milestone for Makoko water Community, as it’s the first time the community will experience free basic medical check-ups conducted directly on the water. A team of dedicated doctors were stationed on boats, conducting essential house to house free basic health checks including blood pressure, BMI, and visceral fat levels, in addition to providing immediate medical consultations.

Samuel Ojeifo from Power Oil, emphasized the brand’s mission to encourage regular medical check-ups for Nigerians. He emphasized the importance of adopting a heart-healthy lifestyle and assured Nigerians that Power Oil’s commitment to this cause remains steadfast.


Chief Emmanuel Shemede Ajakaye, the Baale of Makoko Water Community, expressed his gratitude for the initiative, recognizing the immense benefits it brings to the community. He highlighted the significance of accessible healthcare services and applauded Power Oil for its dedication to the health and well-being of his community and Nigerians at large.

Power Oil’s foray into the water community of Makoko reflects its dedication to making free basic healthcare accessible to all Nigerians, regardless of location journeying towards a healthier, heart-conscious Nigeria.

The Power Oil Cares for Your Heart free basic medical outreach has been a steadfast tradition, and it will continue its mission to visit numerous communities across Nigeria, bringing free basic health check-ups closer to the public.
