Doctor’s advice for hypertensive husbands

Reacting to this tragic development, Dr Familoni stated that hypertensive husbands must avoid watching the AFCON final.

In an interview with Punch, he said:

“Use your drugs and control your emotions. I have a doctor colleague who stays away from football matches because it is difficult for him to control his emotions.

“However, the issue is not only for those who already know that they have heart conditions but for the very many who are not aware.”

He urged Nigerian wives to use their persuasive skills to sway their husbands away from the AFCON final if they are hypertensive.

The doctor said:

“Wives should be able to persuade susceptible persons to stay away from the match, particularly at critical times like penalty shootouts.”
