Ambode’s wife pledges N500,000 monthly allowances for quintuplets’ upkeep

Wife of the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, Bolanle has volunteered a monthly allowance of N500, 000 for twelve months, for the upkeep of quintuplets born to the family of Mr. and Mrs. Augustine Obiefuna of Orile Iganmu, a suburb of the State. Quintuplets are five babies born to the same mother at the same time.


Other welfare arrangements by the governor’s wife for the newborns included supply of diapers for one year; baby milk and other essentials for one year, all these in addition to two bus-loads of baby essentials like beds, mattresses, diapers, boxes of cloths, socks, pants, caps, etc, which would accompany her on a visit to the infants at the Lagos Island Maternity. Also, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode gave an undisclosed amount of money for the babies’ upkeep.


The babies, who were three boys and two girls, weighed between 1.5kg and 2kg respectively. Speaking at the maternity ward, the visibly elated Mrs Ambode, thanked God for the safe delivery of the infants and commended their mother for regularly attending ante-natal sessions in a government hospital.


She, however, urged expectant mothers in the State to shun quacks and self-medication and register for ante-natal clinics in government hospitals for standard medical care. She said: “You can all see why it is good to register in a government hospital where standard medical care is guaranteed.


This woman registered early and regularly attended her ante-natal clinics. The result is that all five babies were safely delivered to the glory of God.”
