That is what captains do. They are the last to leave…they ensure everyone is safe. They put themselves in harm’s way. They tell evil “you would have to pass me first!”. Dr. Adadevoh saw Nigeria as her ship. She was reported to have not only ensured Sawyer was tested for Ebola, but prevented him from leaving the hospital by bodily putting herself in harm’s way! She did not make excuses…even with having a wonderful family with expectations. It was a progeny that came full circle. Her great grandfather, Herbert Macaulay, set us on the path to Nationalism; she took the baton several eons later and saved us from a potentially debilitating plague. As the Yoruba’s say, “bibi ire ko se fowora”. Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh – this is dedicated to you…for all you have done.
