EARLIER THIS WEEK, PAPA Enoch Adeboye wished his wife of 52 years a happy birthday with a beautiful post on Twitter. He mentioned how his wife recognizes him as her head and submits to him in everything, and, expectedly, Nigerian keyboard feminists jumped on the post, calling it all sorts of names. They accused him of “subjugating” his wife, among other ludicrous accusations.
AS AN IGBO DOCTOR working in a tertiary hospital in a non-Igbo town, Benin City, I meet a lot of Igbo patients or their relatives daily and, expectedly, they often heave a sigh of relief when they bump into you or overhear you rattling Igbo.
THERE ARE A LOT of things you people take for granted that mean a lot to us when you come to the hospital.
TWO DAYS AGO, JUNE 19, was World Sickle Cell Day, and as part of the celebration, I gave an online lecture at ChronMate, an NGO, committed to fighting non-communicable diseases in Nigeria.
