Oluomachi’s mother begs government for support
Mrs Nwojo appealed to Government and individuals to come to the aid of the family, noting that it’s not easy to take care of one baby, let alone five.
She gave her contact as 08035746487.
"I thank God for this special gift. I’m a trader. I deal on pap and my husband is a tailor. We will be happy if Government can come to our help because it’s not easy to take care of one (baby), not to talk of five. But we thank God in everything," Mrs Nwojo was quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, for reasons yet to be known, it was gathered that the father of the quintuplets from Umunnya in Anambra state was yet to show up at the hospital at the time of filing this report.
