BRIEF ENLIGHTENMENT TALK ON THE PROSTATE GLAND HELD AT ITS AUGUST 2016 MEETING.
I thank the president for the invitation to deliver this brief enlightenment talk. Most of you will remember that when you studied the biology of the urinary system in man in secondary school, you were taught that the system consists essentially of a pair of kidneys situated at the back of the upper part of the abdomen where, among others, urine is made and from which a pair of ureters run downwards, leading the urine into the urinary bladder in the pelvis where the urine is stored temporarily. When conditions are appropriate, urine is voluntarily voided from the bladder via a single tube, the urethra, which passes through the penis to the exterior in males. There was no mention whatsoever of a prostate gland. And indeed, the prostate gland is not part of the urinary system but paradoxically, the gland has acquired notoriety for the serious problems it causes in relation to the urinary system, to which it does not belong.

Good morning Sir. Happy birthday Sir. You have touched my life in many positive ways and knowing you has truly been a blessing to me. So i celebrate you today and always and ask God to continue to lift up His countenance upon you and to continue to give you peace. Many hearty cheers and God bless you Sir.
We celebrate and appreciate you on this special day sir for being a source of hope and inspiration to us, your children. May the good lord grant you more healthy, strong and productive years even as you add a year to your life today. Happy birthday our mentor, teacher father and friend.
70 years and 8 days ago, a phenomenal woman of unusual strength gave birth to a small sickly child (as we’ve been told you were quite sickly). However, as though with a gift of great foresight, you were so aptly called Nimi meaning knowledge in our mother tongue. Now, 70 years and 8 days later, here you are- Father of 5, Grand-father of 5, Emeritus Professor, Justice of the Peace, Officer-Order of the Niger, Knight of St Christopher, Fellow of the Nigerian Academy of Science, Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London, Fellow of the International College of Surgeons (to mention a few); an astute academician, a stellar administrator, a remarkable mentor and most of all a son of the Most High God. WOW!
Dear sir, for my generation of students you epitomised all that was noble about our chosen profession. As Medical students, you put us right in the centre of the medical firmament in the Teaching hospital. I still remember your insistence on a Medical student scrubbing for every operation & cancelling such if the theatre staff could not or would not accommodate us. The same held sway at ward rounds and clinics where patients had to see us before anyone else. You reminded everyone it was called a “Teaching” hospital because of us!
A very happy birthday to you sir. I remember my time at Port Harcourt medical school with fondness. O & G was tough but fun and Prof Briggs kept us on our toes. You were so knowledgeable and current about women’s health issues that we could not fail to be interested. Thank you very much for all your hard work and even the hard words which drove us to pursue excellence. May God continue to bless you sir. May the Lord give you more strength and many more years in good health. Happy birthday Prof Briggs!
