Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that despite the fact that parenting could be a very hard task, some people still make it seem perfect in the way they go about it.

A Nigerian-American family has set a new standard in parenting as all their four children became doctors like their father.

This kind of thing could only have been achieved through dedication and a great parenting skill, without leaving out the place of the community that would allow such growth.

The children’s uncle, Herbert Oye, also a doctor, left Nigeria in the 1970s in pursuit of dreams in the US.

He attended medical school and became a vascular surgeon before he moved back to Nigeria to open his hospital. The four Nigerian children who all became doctors are David, Monique, Michele, and Melissa Oye.
