A Nigerian lady has made her mark and no doubt left her footprint on the sands of time with her record-breaking achievement.
The lady identified as Abimbola Ayodeji Abolarinwa emerged the first Nigerian woman to become a urologist.
Born in England, Ambibola didn't all start out wanting to achieve such a feat. She had her beginning like any promising female would and her parents made sure she got sound education.
While it is unknown the reason her family relocated to Nigeria after her birth, it was learnt that she did her basic education in Nigeria.
She started her primary education at Air Force Primary School, Kaduna and followed it up with a secondary school education at the Air Force Girls Military School in Jos.
She also attended the University of Ibadan where she started by studying physiology but switched to medicine in her second year and this marked the start of what would become a historic academic journey.
Legit.ng learnt that her decision to read medicine and further specialise in the surgeon sub-division stemmed from the work tales and experiences her father shared with her as he usually took her to his place of work.
She said she chose urology because it was more practical.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported how a man, Chukwueke Chijioke, expressed his excitement after his wife became the first Nigerian to bag a PhD in Pharmacognosy at the University of Helsinki in Finland.
The excited Chijioke had shared the news of her academic success on his Twitter page. He praised her and shared a photo of the young lady being honoured by those at the university.
