Wife of Ekiti state Governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, has assured a stranded other of a newborn set of triplets, Mrs. Abosede Omole, of her preparedness to assist her.
Beyond settling the hapless woman’s accumulated medical bill, the governor’s wife said she would set her up in a business of her choice pending the anticipated return of her runaway husband.
She gave the assurance on Tuesday during her visit to the nursing mother at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, where the triplets are receiving medical attention.
The governor’s wife donated cash and gift items to the nursing mother, whose only companion had been her mother, Mrs. Dupe Afolabi, since her husband ran away.
Describing the action of the woman’s husband as “unbecoming,” the Ekiti First Lady appealed to the fleeing man, identified as Mr. Adewale Omole, to return to his wife and children and ask for forgiveness.
Instead of abandoning his wife to her fate, the governor’s wife said the head of the family should have sought assistance from the state government through the Multiple Birth Trust Fund.
Acting Medical Director of EKSUTH, Dr. Kolawole Ogundipe, said the woman was moved to EKSUTH when the faith-based home where she was delivered of the triplets could not handle the post-delivery complications.
He said the third of the triplets, who was under intensive care at the hospital, was now in stable condition.
The nursing mother thanked the First Lady for the prompt response to her save-my-soul.
