  1. The first female medical doctor from Northern Nigeria is Dr Mrs Mary Dija Ogebe. She obtained her MBBS from the UNILAG College of Medicine in 1971 – 5 years before Dr Halima Adamu’s graduation. Please, let’s set the records straight. Thanks

  2. Dr Mary Dija from Plateau state who is married to former justice of supreme court of Nigeria, justice Ogebe, is the first female medical doctor in Northern Nigeria. Maybe she is the second female medical doctor if at all there was no other female medical doctor that graduated after Dr Mary from 1971 to 1975. Please don’t mislead people
