How I became a Yoruba Igbo…

It all started on a blustery night…early in December of 2007. After a long and stressful trip, the Ifesinachi bus trundled in to the sleepy city called Enugu , a few minutes shy of 12 midnight. The night air was cool and balmy – pleasant in a reasurring way. But, my mind was not…  My…

Dear President Buhari,

That access to appropriate healthcare is what saved you and kept you alive. Is it fair to deny the rest of the Nigerian populace this right? A right to life?

However, this letter is aimed at giving you a bucket list…

What I am more concerned about is the dismal retrogression in the #UHC4AllNigerians agenda.  Sir, I believe you support the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) push for all Nigerians.

I wrote a short article about how we can achieve UHC faster in Nigeria here.

Now, you are back and a testimony to the UK’s healthcare system. No jokes, if you had chosen to stay in Nigeria to get your care, you d be dead. 

You are not and this is why I plead Sir, please make this opportunity count.

But, I am here wondering if Nigerian youths are ready and untainted enough…

Voluntary Blood donors are heroes
