KATSINA MAN DIVORCES WIFE FOR ALLOWING MALE DOCTOR ATTEND TO HER DURING DELIVERY. 

A man in Katsina State has reportedly divorced his 14-year old house wife for allowing a male medical practioner attend to her while giving birth to his baby.

The teenage mother, who was divorced by the husband, was said to have had a complicated child birth, resulting to being rushed to the hospital where there was no female medical practioner on ground to attend to her. As a result, the only male medical practioner available attended to her during labour, a development that led to the crash of her marriage.

Although the lady was said to have given birth successfully, her husband’s joy was cut short when he rushed to the hospital to realize that the medical practitioner that attended to the wife during labour was a male. Peeved by the development, he subsequently divorced the wife.

The Executive Director of Nana Women and Girls Empowerment Initiative, Dr. Fatima Adamu, who disclosed this, Thursday, in Abuja, while speaking as a keynote speaker at the Human Resources for Health Production Dialogue, appealed to governments, especially state governments to ensure there was equity in the recruitment and deployment of medical personnel to rural communities.
