A brilliant Black woman, Tito Daodu, has been recognised by APSA Surgeon as the first black female pediatric surgeon in Canada working at Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation.

The association said Tito is so much passionate about helping the marginalised in society as a way to improve people's general standard of living.

Many tweeps praised the woman for how she has sacrificed a whole lot to get to where she is today.

Recall that she was recognised for contributing greatly to humanity by AvenueCalgary magazine as top 40 people who are under the age of 40 doing great things.

In explaining why she merited the Top 40 Under 40 award, the magazine said the Nigerian is an award-winning researcher and pediatric surgery fellow who has used her expertise to bring down borders in providing surgical service to patients.

APSA's latest recognition drew several comments from Nigerians who believe she also needs to be honoured in her home country.

@Ladi_Dairo said:

"She's done fantastically well. As alot of Nigerians do. That's how we roll. But kindly explain what any of her achievements have to do with #BlackHistoryMonth? It is not our history in Africa. And bears no relation to us whatsoever."

Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that a young Nigerian man, Ehigie Osebor, took to the bird app to announce that after spending six years in medical school, he has now passed his final exams.

The man's tweet on Monday, February 8, was in response to a post he made in 2013 where he excitedly tweeted that he just got an admission.
