Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that despite the fact that parenting could be a very hard task, some people still make it seem perfect in the way they go about it.
A Nigerian-American family has set a new standard in parenting as all their four children became doctors like their father.
This kind of thing could only have been achieved through dedication and a great parenting skill, without leaving out the place of the community that would allow such growth.
The children’s uncle, Herbert Oye, also a doctor, left Nigeria in the 1970s in pursuit of dreams in the US.
He attended medical school and became a vascular surgeon before he moved back to Nigeria to open his hospital. The four Nigerian children who all became doctors are David, Monique, Michele, and Melissa Oye.
In other news, two young Nigerian sisters took over the internet as they celebrated each other, following the achievement of one of them who became a medical doctor.
On Wednesday, July 1, Onyi applauded herself for graduating from the University of Texas and becoming a doctor.
In an earlier tweet on Tuesday, July 2, Onyi’s sister had shown her off as she posted cute pictures of them together.
