It is the joy of every couple to welcome their bundle of joy nine months or a year after their wedding. Some wishes are granted while others have to wait for some years before the cry of a baby is heard in their home.
A woman identified as Ifeoma Nwaka and her husband Ogbonnaya just welcomed a set of quintuplets at Life International Hospital in Awka, Anambra state. The hospital is a health care facility set as a result of Governor Willie Obinabo’s clarion call.
Aside from being happy about the arrival of the babies, Ifeoma and her husband have cried out to Nigerians to please come to their aid. The woman added that she and her husband are petty traders and so not have the resources to feed the newborn children and pay hospital bills.
Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS) disclosed that: “An Anambra woman, Mrs Ifeoma Nwaka, aged 44 from Enugwu-ukwu, married to Abia state born Mr Ogbonnaya Nwaka has given birth to a set of quintuplets. She delivered at about twenty minutes past 1pm on Wednesday, August 8. The births came after four years of delivering her daughter and first child. Mrs Nwaka delivered through Caesarian Session at Life International hospital, Awka, a new health care facility set up in Anambra state as a result of Governor Willie Obinabo's 'Aku Luo Uno' (Think Home) clarion call. The Nwaka family is having challenges feeding the babies and paying the hospital bills. The mother of six told ABS correspondent Ngozi Obileri that she and her husband are petty traders at Owerri where they are based until she was admitted into the hospital some weeks ago as the multiple conception was detected at the very early stage. They are appealing to the state government, good spirited individuals, and members of the public to come to their aid by donating cash and materials to them for the upkeep of the children.”
