1. Who is Nigeria's first Obstetrician & Gynaecologist?

We are sure that many people don’t know that the first Nigerian citizen to ever qualify as a Gynaecologist/Obstetrician was Prof. Okoronkwo Kesandu Ogan.

He was an iconic man that also became the first president of the “Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of Nigeria” – an Organization formed in 1965 back then in Lagos.

In the year 1975, the Nigerian Federal Public Service Commission also appointed this same man as its Chairman.

Prof. Okoronkwo Ogan was born in the year 1919 and hails from Bende local government in Imo State, Nigeria. He got his medical training in between the year 1950 and 1952 in the West London Medical School after which he also attended the University of London Medical School between the year 1952 – 1954 and 1956 – 1958.
