 “While we may not fund their education at esteemed institutions like Harvard, this financial aid will significantly alleviate their educational expenses,”Otabor explained further.

Making a remark at the occasion, the Guest of Honor, Ordinary President Ahmed Isah, who was represented by his Personal Assistant, Barrister Pamella Pius, stated, “This development will bring joy to many households that have struggled with infertility for years.”

“I can envision the happiness in this household that has been childless for the past decade and now welcomes three children.

” That is a triple blessing. One of the aspirations of Ordinary President has been fulfilled,”she added.

Dr. Mike Enokela, Head of the IVF Center, while expressing his happiness at the achievement, noted that the escalating demand for IVF services was due to increasing infertility rates, saying that the center has attracted clients from both Nigeria and beyond.
