About Me

Am Ugbede Emeoyo Gaius all the way from Nigeria, a guy who loves writing, a pharmacist by profession and an engineer by training.
I learnt about electrical connections and mechanic in petrol engine generator at a young age. Went further to study pharmacy at Delta State University, Abraka. I started this blogging career about two years ago for though the site is down. I use to freelance for about four blogs. I started this blog on the 1st of March, 2017. 
This blog was created out of passion for the profession of Pharmacy and the country of Nigeria. Of all the medical personnel in the country, very few think of blog as a means of spreading medical information to citizens. This could be because of the lack of time they have. In addition, I think it is same in other countries. This is in sharp contrast to what is obtained in other field. They get major online presence. This could have led to the proliferation of non-medical practitioners dabbling into medical field with little or no knowledge and get the respect of readers.
Well, this is about to change as this blog tends to bring first-hand information on Health and Medicine in an easy to understand manner having the country in mind. It will focus on some funny practices that have eaten deep into the fabric of the society, which we may consider harmless because it is an age long tradition. This is meant to bridge the gap between medical personnel’s and citizens
Here, people will see reasons while they ought to be actively involved in their own health.
So, take your time. Explore!
