It was another medical feat in Abeokuta, Ogun State Capital, Southwest of Nigeria, as a woman, 42, was delivered of a set of triplets through ceasarian section.
The triplets came in the town, weeks after a 66 year old woman, Mrs. Ajibola Otunbusin was delivered of a baby boy after forty years of marriage.
The lucky mother is Mrs. Adenike Olaleye, a native of Imeko, headquarters of Imeko -Afon Local Government Area of Ogun State, who had her set of first children after being married for over fifteen years.
The father of the triplets, two females and a boy, delivered in a private hospital, RedWood Clinics,Adigbe Area, on Monday, last week, is a 65 year old Muslim cleric.
“I thank God that at last He answered my fervent prayers of making me a mother of my own children. He is really wonderful, I was expecting one, but He gave me three at a go, probably to compensate me for my long search for children.
The delivery has made my faith in Him stronger than before. I believe once He makes a promise, He will fulfil it no matter how long. God is a promise keeper, He does not fail, once He promised. I believe that He that made my pregnancy possible and my delivery safe, will also provide for me and my husband to take care of the children”,
Olaleye, a trader, urged women who are looking up to God for the fruit of the womb not to lose hope, “ but rather remain positive and keep looking up to God, who will surprise one with a bountiful gift at a time when one least expect it”. she said.
