Although Nigerians are usually painted in a bad light in international settings, there are still some of our citizens who keep giving us reasons to smile. One of these people is doctor Oladotun Okunola.
Recall that the United States Democratic party presidential aspirant, Hillary Clinton, recently had a health scare while on the campaign trail but made a magical recovery to the surprise of many.
However, Clinton has revealed the man behind her quick recovery, and yes, he’s no other person than Nigerian doctor Oladotun Okunola.
According to a post on usapoliticsnow.com, Hillary’s personal doctor follows her around while she’s on the campaign trail, and blends in with the secret service. Dr Okunola, is said to be on hand for whenever she needs emergency medical attention.
Clinton was said to have tweeted the following words after her recovery from her recent health scare where she fainted and had to be assisted out of the venue of the 9/11 memorial event:
“I want to give a big THANK YOU to my Doctor who travels everywhere with me, Dr. Oladotun Okunola. I wouldn’t be here without him! Literally.”
