Ogun State government has opened a bank account for an indigene of the state whose husband ran away on hearing the news of her triplet birth, to enable those who want to assist the woman and her children do so.
The account was opened with Sterling Bank with the Account name: Akapo Taiwo Kehinde Idowu, Account number: 0021422589, Sort code: 232170012.
Earlier, the state Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs Elizabeth Sokunbi led the government delegates to visit the Afojupa village residence of the mother of the babies in Owode-Egba, Obafemi/Owode local government area of Ogun State with the traditional ruler of Owode, Oba Kolawole Sowemimo.
The state government donated an undisclosed sum of money, clothing materials, and other babies’ needs to the new mother.
Mrs. Akapo, expressed appreciation to the government and also thanked the traditional ruler for his support before and after she gave birth to the triplets.
She also appealed to her husband who has not shown up at home since she was delivered of the babies, to come back home, especially now that government has offered assistance for the welfare of the children.
A neighbour had helped the 30-year-old mother of five to the hospital on Wednesday, 24 July, 2013
when she was pressed with labour. She gave birth to her healthy triplets at Ore-ofe Maternity Home in Owode-Egba town.
The monarch of the community paid the hospital bill.
