HEALTH NEWS: Governor Willie Obiano Makes Test for Sickle Cell Disease Compulsory for Couples before Marriage in Anambra State

Are you from Anambra State? If so, this information is very important for you. I want to let you know that it is no longer business as usual to marry anyhow in Anambra State, because the governor of the State Willie
Obiano will not take it lightly if you marry without you and your partner undergoing Sickle Cell test.
The governor said intending couple in Anambra must screen for sickle cell disease before getting married, failure to do so, will deny them certain privileges from the state government like employment and empowerment opportunities.
This measure is geared towards eradicating Sickle Cell disease in the state. Intending couples must make sure to know their genotypes and be sure it's compatible for marriage before going ahead to get married. In Igbo land, a child or person with SS genotype or suffering from Sickle Cell Disease is called “Ogbanje” or a witch
Compatible genotypes for marriage are:
>>AA marries an AA. That's the best compatible. That way you save your future children from having to worry about genotype compatibility in future.
>>AA marries an AS. You'll end up with kids with AA and AS which is good. But sometimes if you're not lucky all the kids will be AS
>>AS and AS should not marry.
>>AS and SS shouldn't think of marrying.
And definitely SS and SS must not marry since there's absolutely no chance of escaping having a child with the sickle cell disease.

Nice one my governor

Bennard Ahupa

Is tonto n her husband ss?

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

Endy, what if they get married and don't do it?

Endy Edeson

@jesse & Bennard: very good questions. well, if a couple with SS love each other and insist on getting married, it means they won't have sex for procreation rather for fun (condom must be used). Also, they should also consider adopting a child instead of raising a sick child., @Bennard: no, they are not. they only portray a vivid picture of a couple

It'z Stanley Uchenna

Is Tonto and her husband from Anambra state?...@Endy

Endy Edeson

@stanley: that is not the topic here? the photo ( irrespective of person ) portrays an "Arresting" image of a couple. It's just for the article. Tonto Dike is not part of this discussion

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

Endy, and you think they'll do that?

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

Exactly or praying to God for a miracle

Hmm,if could turn bck d hands of d clock i would. Cos i am SS & knw what i have gone thru & is still goin thru. I won't advice/wish even my enemies who are not compatible to even think about damning d consequences & get married xos guys,truth be told i have gone thru hell but i thank God He has kept & is still keeping me. By His grace He has seen me thru d dangerous period/age of intensity e.g crisis,blood transfussion,regular hospitalization etc. Love will fade away if two incompatible patners insist on getting married when their offspring(s) beging to come down with crisis & regular hospitalization,it takes only God's grace. For my parents they didnt knw,i blv if they had known they sure wouldnt hav got married bck then. Nice & educative post Endy Edeson. I am a testimony by God's grace.

Endy Edeson

@John: thanks for sharing. you are a living testimony. I pray that you continue to be strong.

Browayson John Sr.

Yea,Amen brthr. I hav been strong & cant rmbr when i fell sick last or had a crisis of d joint.. I know so well its God's grace that has kept me. Pls continue spreading d msg frm ur endz thru this platform wide,i also counsel pple on it cos i am a voluntary counsellor for HIV/AIDS by proffesion so i often times chip this in when i talk to clients that want to go for voluntary testing.,nice one
