Twin brothers, Chidimma Muogbo and Chinemerem Muogbo have taken the internet by a storm after graduating from medical schools as doctors.
Taking to LinkedIn, their mother, Uju Susan shared the good news, congratulating her sons for the lifetime achievement.
“My children, the twins, the boys, sons of consolation, very cool headed, humble, kind, with fear of God (I dont want to add what they spoilt for us because they already know) graduated from medical school and bevame medical doctors,” wrote Uju.
The mother who is a senior lecturer at a local university in Nigeria further highlighted challenges they have faced on social media platforms and identification systems due to their striking resemblance.
“Last week on this app, LinkedIn, they wrote about their graduation and tagged me duly but LinkedIn pulled down one of their profile thinking it was one person until they wrote and LinkedIn restored their pages,” she added.
“They opened an Instagram account, same thing happened. One account was closed because they thought it was one person opening two accounts, until they wrote and uploaded their ID cards it was released.”
Jude Chekumwe: Congratulations Uju. It can only be God. I just hope that their wives will some day be able to distinguish them as separate individuals
Iain Stewart Brown-Hovelt: Systems can’t think out of the box because the designers of them didn’t either…programmers take note. Congratulations on their hard work to become doctors but I hope they don’t work in the same hospital or there will be many confused patients
Chinonyelum Ejimuda: I thought it was only I and my twin sister, Chibundom Ejimuda that had the National ID card issue too
Mariel NievesClassen: You are an excellent mother to educate your twins. Also, you will be so proud
