If there is any disease that Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and his beautiful wife, Dolapo dread so much like no other, then it’s no other than cancer. Last year, it would be recalled that Mrs. Dolapo, together with some women, staged a walk against the terminal disease in Abuja, Nigeria’s federal capital as a way of showing her concern for those who have cancer and to help with the awareness on cancer. And this year too, in a similar trend, the husband on Wednesday this week has fully come out to support the war against cancer.
While this act is quite commendable, what many do not know is that cancer has really dealt a heavy blow on the family.
For Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, cancer is a disease that afflicts him in horrific ways as it has claimed his mother-in-law and sister-in-law. The vice president disclosed this on Wednesday while given a speech at a conference on cancer in Abuja.
Having lost their quintessential family members to cancer, sources claimed the number two family in the country is hell bent on supporting the war against cancer.
