Peter Ejiofor, the deputy editor-in-chief of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), and his wife Anastasia, have sought the help of fellow countrymen in taking care of their quadruplets who recently clocked three years.
Ejiofor, who would be retiring in 2021, said taking care of the kids has not been easy but friends and family have been assisting.
According to him, the quadruplets arrived seven years after marriage. Ejiofor described their birth as a miracle.
In his words:
“It is not easy to raise even twins, but we thank God for family members and friends who have been contributing for their upkeep.
“When they were born, Lagos State Government under former Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode, through his wife, visited and gave them gifts including clothes and money."
The mother of the kids noted that as the quadruplets are growing, their demands are also increasing.
Anastasia is, however, hopeful that God who blessed them with the kids will send helpers their way.
In her words:
“God who gave them the children will raise help as He has been doing for us.
"This Christmas, many people gave us gifts, we are grateful to all those who have been supporting us. God bless them."
