Mr. Obinna Ehikwe, a native of Emuhu, whom the wife gave birth to triplet on March 16, 2020 is once again calling on well-meaning individuals, cooperate bodies and the state government for assistance to take care of his triplet.
Mr. Ehikwe in a chat with Ika Weekly reporter at his residence in Agbor, appreciated God for the birth of the triplet, but, said that taking care of the triplets has not been easy for him and the wife.
He lauded the State Government for the free medical treatment given to his wife right from the period of pregnancy to delivery. In his words, “I thank His Excellency, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, the Governor of Delta State for the free health care service for pregnant women, children and the elderly. It goes a long way to show that the Governor we have is a man that has the interest of the people at heart.”
He also expressed gratitude to those who have so far extended hand of charity to the babies, especially Mr. Ehiwario Ewubor who gave them food items some time ago, and the management and staff of Ika Weekly newspaper. He prayed God to bless his benefactors abundantly.
The mother of the triplet, Mrs. Anthonia Ehikwe, noted that she is full of joy for safe delivering, and appreciates God for good health, both for her and the triplet. She, however, noted sadly that the cost of taking care of the babies is high and too much for her and her husband, thereby joining her husband in appealing for assistance from the public.
Speaking to our reporter, the wife of the General Overseer, New Jerusalem Church, the church the couple attends, Pastor Mrs. Ebie, noted that the arrival of the triplet was a blessing to the family and the church, adding that the couple needs all the help they can get to enable them cater for the babies, urging everyone to contribute the little they can for the welfare of the babies. She asserted that there is no good deed that will not be rewarded.
