Lagos Urges Absconded Father Of Three Sets Of Twins To Return


Lagos State  Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Oluranti Adebule, yesterday hosted Mrs. Ruth Uche whose husband abandoned after she was delivered of a set of twins, her third.

Adebule advised the run-away husband to come forward and take up the responsibility of taking care of his family, admonishing him to be appreciative of the divine blessings that have come his way through the children.

Mrs. Uche was hosted at the deputy governor’s office following the directive of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode that the woman and her children be rehabilitated and assisted by all relevant government agencies to ensure they are in good condition.

Speaking at her office, the deputy governor sympathized with Mrs Uche over the traumatic experience of trying to raise six children following the disappearance of her husband. She assured her that the government  will ensure the children’s well-being.

She thanked the woman for coming forward to seek help instead of abandoning the children.

“As a woman and a mother, I can only imagine what you have gone through managing six children, it must have been energy sapping and depressing, but I salute your courage and I want to assure you that this government will not abandon you, we will stand by you and ensure that you are assisted to get back to a normal life,” Adebule said.

The Deputy Governor added that the governor had approved the release of some amount of money, which will be paid into an account and part of it used to attend to some of the immediate needs of the children and their mother, adding that officials from the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation have been directed to provide the necessary logistics support to her.

Mrs. Uche expressed appreciation to the government for supporting her, noting that the love shown to her and her children could only have come from a government that truly cares about the well being of its people.
