WHAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT LATUNDE ODEKU OF NIGERIA, THE FIRST BLACK US-TRAINED NEUROSURGEON:
Today, we will take a look at an outstanding Nigerian. An excellent doctor. The first black neurosurgeon to be trained in the United States. Nigeria’s first brain surgeon. A patriot who sacrificed all for his nation. But he has largely remained in obscurity (especially to those outside the medical community). No thanks to a nation where governments would rather honour a thief, praise a criminal to high heavens and adorn a cabal with medals than celebrate the real heroes. Join Abiyamo as we explore the life of one of Africa’s most illustrious sons.
