A medical doctor has gone on Twitter to praise her father after he got his PhD to fulfill a promise he made to her, IgbereTV reports.

Dr Maria Uloko, who became a medical doctor at 23, said her father promised her then that he will go back to school and earn his doctorate so that she wouldn't be the only ''doctor'' in the family.

He kept his words and earned his PHD in December. At his oral defence, he said he went back to school to fulfill his promise to his daughter.

Dr. Maria wrote on her Twitter handle:

"My dad has spent the last 4 years getting his PhD while working two full time jobs. He did it because he didn’t want me to be the only Doctor in the family. At the age of 65, world, meet Dr. Emmanuel Uloko my father, my biggest cheerleader and who I compare every man to."

"Wow, you all thank you so much for the kind words on my father. He’s floored and overwhelmed by the support. Never in his wildest dreams would he think he’d get such a response! If you loved this story, check out my podcast @BattleCryPod for more stories of diversity in STEM!"

Good day to everyone. i just created a bet9ja account with OLAWALE OLABISI which is slightly different from the name i used to registered my bank account which is OLAWALE OLABISI JOSEPH... last weekend, i won 110k and i was trying to withdraw but i couldn't. they told me my bank account name does not corresponded with the one i used to register be9ja. meanwhile, only the JOSEPH is the problem. early this morning, i went to GTB to open a new account with OLAWALE OLABISI so that i can withdraw the money. getting there, they demanded for my BVN. but i explained the issue. i told them that i don't want to link the BVN with the new account so that the OLAWALE OLABISI JOSEPH wont appear. so, they told me that without BVN, i wont be able to withdraw any money inside the account which i agreed. To cap it up. i was registered so, i went and transferred the money and it went through. but now i could not withdraw the money. please, can i link the BVN with the account number? but, remember that the name on my BVN is OLAWALE OLABISI JOSEPH while the one i used to register the new account is OLAWALE OLABISI. urgent help please. thanks
