Issue of childlessness is a very serious one in African countries including Nigeria. Many times, married women are left in distress because they have not yet welcomed a child after several years of walking down the aisle.
Usually the pressure comes from external forces like in-laws and other times the pressure comes from the husband.
Well, many women have finally given testimonies after trying to have a child for a very long time.
It was the turn of a Nigerian woman to rejoice after she welcomed a child despite waiting for 12 years.
The woman identified as Queen Ogbonna took to social media via her Facebook page to share the good news.
The elated new mother revealed in her post that she had finally welcomed a child after 12 years of waiting. Ogbonna thanked God for his blessings and added that she gave birth to a baby girl.
She wrote: “Jehovah overdo, he did it after 12 years , it's a baby girl.”

In another story, Ghanaian creative and social entrepreneur, Makafui Awuku, is the genius creative behind McKingtorch Africa. McKingtorch Africa is a social enterprise that turns plastic waste into useful art pieces and other products.
The young Ghanaian creative and his team at McKingtorch Africa have successfully developed beautiful sandals from plastic waste, otherwise known as pure water bags.
The team turns shredded LDPE and HDPE plastic waste into leather-like materials and then into art. McKingtorch Africa found innovative ways to make use of pure water bags that have littered Ghana's capital city Accra. Myjoyonline.com reports that through a waste recovery project, households and individuals are able to separate other waste from plastic bags and sell it to them.
The team at McKingtorch Africa then shreds the waste, and through a smokeless process under temperatures of more than 300 degrees, turns the material into a sheet to produce sandals.
