The first baby of the year in Ogun State was delivered at the Ijebu Ode General Hospital at about 12.01a.m.
Baby Lawal, who weighs 4.6 kilogrammes is a baby girl.
Few minutes later, five other babies, both females and males were also delivered at the same hospital.
Also, seven other babies were later delivered at the Ijaye General Hospital, Abeokuta, the state capital.
Wife of the Ogun State governor, Mrs, Bamidele Abiodun, who later visited the babies both in Ijebu-Ode and Abeokuta charged nursing mothers to always ensure exclusive breast feeding of their babies.
This she noted would ensure both a healthy mental and physical growth of their babies, who she described as precious.
During her visits, the governor’s wife made both cash and kind donations, including baby items.
