Abike Dabiri Scolds Follower who Appeared to Insinuate She Doesn’t know what real Journalism is

Abike Dabiri-Erewa has scolded a follower who appeared to insinuate that she doesn't know what real journalism is. The Twitter user tagged the former media personality-turned-politician to an investigative report shared on Twitter and accompanied it with a disrespectful caption. "Where is @abikedabiri, come and see real investigative journalism here," the follower wrote. And Abike responded: "When I was in active journalism 18 years ago and I set standards for investigative and human angle stories, you were probably not born or you, as usual, continue to wallow in abject ignorance and unbridled stupidity. My last day of Ramadan. I stop here."

“My country has ruined me” Nigerian doctor narrates how a friend in Finland broke down in tears at discovering how doctors ‘search for patients’ veins’ in Nigeria”

A doctor in Nigeria narrated how he discovered that the method used by some doctors/nurses to search for patients' veins in Nigeria is 'outdated and causes avoidable pain.' He explained that he was speaking to his friend in Finland about slapping patients to find their veins and the woman started sobbing, asking why patients who are already sick should have to receive slaps. He added that the woman revealed to him that they have something called the vein finder, used to easily detect a person's vein to avoid pricking the patient multiple times or slapping them while searching for their vein. He blamed Nigeria for his ignorance, writing: "My country has made the abnormal seem normal for me. My country has ruined me." Read his tweets below.
