Not only does today mark the beginning of my medical career, but 7 years ago also signifies yet another turning point in my health. The common fever, that is much talked about with a grain of salt, which has killed so many Nigerians under 5 years old and in other parts of the Sub Sahara Africa. Today as I sat in a private paediatric clinic in the seat of the caliphate metropolis, I saw under-fives whose major presentations were fever, associated with catarrh, cough, diarrhoea and...

I have always known Nigerians to be very optimist people even in the face of untold hardship and suffering. The late music legend Fela Anikulapo once sang of the “suffering and smiling” syndrome of the average Nigerian. We are stoic in the face of adversary, always objective even when all logical conclusions point to the other direction; and we are quick to retort to our normal mantra ‘e go beta’ (everything will be alright). Little did I know that this is not a generally s...

By ATIKU ABUBAKAR (@atiku) - Originally posted here: http://atiku.org/aa/2013/12/29/the-education-summit-we-need 2013 has been a year of mixed fortunes for Nigerian education. I recall with much grief the series of school shootings that took place in Borno and Yobe states; tens of young Nigerians cruelly cut down in their hostels and classrooms. 2013 was also the year that the ‘A World At School’ campaign gained prominence. The campaign seeks to draw attention to the...

The idea that there is a need to improve the situation, what current attempts have been made to improve the Education System in Nigeria? Then this sprung to mind (http://www.aljazeera.com/video/africa/2013/11/nigeria-boost-state-controlled-education-2013113010521... ). I saw this story on AlJazeera a month ago. There were some minor issues...

2013 for me has been a very trying year. A lot of ups and downs. Incidences that have tested my resolve and courage. Situations that broke me down totally. Yet I have come out of it all with a stronger determination to take my life to the next level (in the coming year) with God by my side. Well, this piece is not meant to highlight my personal experiences, but my understanding of certain occurrences and happenings within Nigeria and outside the year 2013 (some of which I have already written ab...

By Atiku Abubakar. Original source: http://atiku.org/aa/2014/01/01/never-take-unity-for-granted/ As we mark the centenary celebration of the amalgamation of the Lagos colony with the Northern and Southern Protectorates by the British Colonial occupier forming one country, Nigerians need to pat each other on the back. We have truly come a long way. We must redouble our efforts towards building a stronger and more united Nigeria rather than concentrating energies on division o...
