As usual, Naijauto goes down memory lane again!
This time around we have decided to share a rare family photo of Nigeria’s first Gynaecologist & Obstetrician and his family posing with their Mercedes Benz car.
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.
