 “I am the one that handles pressure in the country. Listen to me very well, if you heard about Dr. Think twice, I’m the one… I’ve appeared on TV station several times the last four years when I went to Kejetia and hanged myself.

I was asked why and I told them it’s all because of pressure and I hanged myself where I blocked traffic and the police came to arrest me and people asking me won’t I marry, give birth or my genital organ isn’t functioning. Is it pressure or not?

I want to discourage people from pressuring the young ones into early marriages. Those who are married also faces pressures from society to have children. As if that is not enough, those who have one or two children are pressured to have more”, Dr. Think Twice explained.
