win 40k and a night with me
Ola Orekunrin, now 30 years from Ilawe-Ekiti in Ekiti State of Nigeria, was born, raised and trained in the UK, where she graduated as one of the youngest medical doctors in England . She is also a trainee helicopter pilot.

While she was studying to become a doctor in the UK, her younger sister fell seriously ill while traveling in Nigeria. The 12-year-old girl, who’d gone to the West African country on holiday with relatives, needed urgent care, but the nearest hospital couldn’t deal with her condition.

Orekunrin and her family immediately began looking for an air ambulance service to rapidly transport the girl, a sickle cell anemia sufferer, to a more suitable healthcare facility. They searched all across West Africa but were stunned to find out there were none in the whole region.

“The nearest one at the time was in South Africa,” remembers Orekunrin. “They had a 12-hour activation time so by the time they were ready to activate, my sister was dead”.
“It was really a devastating time for me and I started thinking about whether I should be in England talking about healthcare in Africa, or I should be in Africa dealing with healthcare and trying to do something about it.”

Orekunrin did the latter. Motivated by the tragic death of her sister, the young doctor decided to leave behind a high-flying job in the UK to take to the Nigerian skies and address the vital issue of urgent healthcare in Africa’s most populous country.

Determined to make a difference in medical practice and health care delivery system in Nigeria, Orekunrin decided to set up Lagos-based Flying Doctors Nigeria, the first air ambulance service in West Africa, transporting victims of medical emergencies, including industrial workers from the country’s booming oil and gas sector. It basically provides critical care transportation solutions to both the private and public sector by selling yearly air ambulance cover plans to states, companies and individuals.

Since then, she has successfully steered the company upwards in achieving its corporate goals and ensuring sustained growth.“Against all odds, I passed my A-Levels with flying colors, started my degree at the University of York at 15. I supported myself all through, working. I wrote my final medical examinations at 21, thus emerging the youngest medical doctor in England,” said Ola Orekunrin.

2 Things BUHARI Have Done That Will Make You Love Him

2 Things BUHARI Have Done That Will Make You Love Him.

win 40k and a night with me

 

Like many presidents in the world today, Muhammadu Buhari has been a subject of criticism. Many persons believe his style of leadership is tilted to a particular group of people or tribe.

win 40k and a night with me

However, these criticism didn’t offset him from his duty as the head of the nation.

win 40k and a night with me

Personally I believe Buhari has been more of a neutral than a one-sided leader.

win 40k and a night with me

Quickly let’s take a look at some of them

win 40k and a night with me

1. The second niger bridge:

Although the second niger bridge was initiated by his predecessor Goodluck Jonathan, president Buhari has pumped in resources into the full actualization of the project.

The second niger bridge is a top priority on the list of projects the Buhari led administration has sought to achieve.

The construction of the bridge commenced on the first of September, 2020 and it is estimated to be completed by 2022.

The total cost of the project is estimated at about 336 billion naira. The bridge will span from asaba (Delta State) to ogbaru and ozubulu in anambra state.

 

 

Completion of this bridge will bring massive development to the two states and even to other parts of the country as well.

If Buhari eventually completes this project, he will always be remembered as a hero.

 

 

Also, as an addendum to the second niger Bridge, a complementary road construction is underway.

The Owerri interchange (1.6 km bridge, 10.3 km Hwy) including a toll station is being constructed along Onitsha/Owerri road Obosi very close to electrical market Obosi, the interchange will lead to Second Niger bridge.

So far, the Project is 33%-40% completed.

2. Boko Haram defeat:

Before president Buhari came into office, the Boko Haram menace was terrible. The attacks were unending. The kidnaps and bombings caused nationwide Panick and protest.

But with the help of the Nigerian army, Buhari has been able to curtail the activities of Boko Haram in the country.

Boko Haram has never experienced the kind of assaults they’ve encountered this last few months. Some have even surrendered under the weight of the military attacks.

Many have abandoned the group for fear of being killed or captured by the Nigeria military force.

And finally many have been killed.

This achievement is a major landslide as boko haram has been the greatest threat to peace and development in Nigeria.

At a time foreign investors were having double minds about investing in Nigeria.

However, by the time the Boko harms is completely defeated, we will see several of investors from different parts of the world begging to invest in this great nation.

It is a fact that the major threat to the progress of a country is insecurity.

These two things are only a tip of the ice berg. In my next post I will try to bring to light other achievements of president Buhari especially in the east were his critiics are highest.

Please share this post to as many person as you can. Let’s promote oneness amongst Nigerians, because after all is said and done, there is no place like home.

You can share your thoughts on these.
