UK-based Nigerian doctor Wilson Orhiunu publishes The Naija Food Philosopher

UK-based Nigerian medical doctor Wilson Orhiunu has published a book titled The Naija Food Philosopher.

The book is centred on food and the Nigerian people’s love for delicacies.

In a brief note about the book, Orhiunu said its cover was personal to him.

“The cover for this book is very personal. I thought of changing it when the EndSars protests ended up with a bloodied National flag as its enduring iconic image. But then I thought again. The people have no problem with Nigerian food or water; after all water and food have no enemies,” he said.

In an interview with Rave TV on his new book, Orhiunu said it took him three years to put the book together.

He also said he got the inspiration to write the book in 2017 from a collection of poems about food.

The former columnist read medicine at the University of Benin.

He currently works at the NHS and lives in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
