Good News – Samuel Achilefu

A little while ago, we were challenged by someone on Facebook to tell good news African stories. We loved the challenge as we believe that there are so many good news stories out there and that they need to be told.

One of those stories is of Doctor Samuel Achilefu.

Achilefu has an amazing story. A young man from Nigeria who has won international awards for his groundbreaking work in cancer research.

We suggest you read this article, and this one, on his virtual reality goggles that he invented before listening to our interview with Achilefu. We spoke to him on Skype and had a great chat about his beginnings, his career and what keeps him ticking every day.
