Prof mentioned about his speech on the state of neurosurgery in Nigeria. This is of interest to me as I am keen to write and rewrite the history for posterity. Such publications are therefore of real benefit. The Odeku Memorial Lecture published in the African Journal of Medical Sciences (Ibadan) on the practice of neurosurgery in Nigeria is a must read for all our neurosurgeons. Please see: Ohaegbulam SC: Half a Century of Neurosurgery in Nigeria. The 13th E. Latunde Odeku Memorial lecture. Afr.J.Med.Sci. (20098) 37,293-302. Unfortunately the copy is not available online but can be obtained direct from the publishers. Or get a friend to get the journal for you as I intend to do.
My visit to MEMFYS was a very memorable and enjoyable one. The professor found time in his very busy schedule to have quite insightful conversations with me. The range of topics was quite wide and I will share some with you in the next few weeks. I was truly honoured to be in his presence and will always remember the visit fondly.
