Benue State’s first baby of the year and three orphanages in the state were, yesterday, showered with gifts valued at N30 million by wife of the Benue State Governor, Arc. Mrs. Yemisi Suswam.
Receiving the first baby of the year born to the family of Mr. and Mrs. Ngutor Amenge, at the Federal Medical Centre, Makurdi, Mrs Suswam urged pregnant women to always make themselves available for antenatal care during pregnancy.
According to her, “It is only by so doing that you can enjoy the benefits of good and qualitative medical care during pregnancy and safe delivery at the appointed date.”
Mrs. Suswam who donated several items to patients at the hospital also paid the medical bills of some of the patients at the hospital.
She also offered university scholarship to ten children at the Gidam Beke and Mama Abayol orphanages, who had just finished their secondary education.
