Ademola Babalola in Ibadan
A Federal lawmaker from Ibadan North Federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Abiodun Awoleye, has told the father of a set of quintuplets, Alfa Yusuf AbdulRasaq, that running away from his current ‘travails’ over the bundle of joy was not the option.
Instead, Awoleye said God who blessed him with the children would always provide succour, saying good-spirited Nigerians would always come around to support the family in whatever form they can to mitigate the possible difficulties they may encounter in raising the children.
The lawmaker stated this when he visited the family at the children ward of the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan where they were delivered of five children two weeks ago. He donated cash gifts and also pledged to assist UCH with ultra-modern equipment to take care of other patients too.
