Ebonyi records huge number of teenage hawkers in Nigeria —Ogbonna Says, Ndigbo can’t rule Nigeria now

It’s quiet unfortunate and shameful that if you are driving along the streets in Lagos particularly on highways and you approach any of those hawkers’ they will tell you they are from Ebonyi state. Also, if you decide to communicate to them in their language, they will respond accordingly, an indication that confirms their honesty. I’m disappointed and angry with those who had governed the state, particularly, with their self-centredness.

Cancer surgery: a diary

TWO years ago I wrote about my choice to have a preventive double mastectomy. A simple blood test had revealed that I carried a mutation in the BRCA1 gene. It gave me an estimated 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer. I lost my mother, grandmother and aunt to cancer.

I promised to follow up with any information that could be useful, including about my next preventive surgery, the removal of my ovaries and fallopian tubes.
