A recently laid off Ecobank worker has welcomed triplets with his wife in Sabon Gari, Kano.
Mr Luke Anyaechie and his wife welcomed their babies on Thursday, September 29 via caesarian section.
Speaking with Sunday Punch, shortly after the delivery, Mr Anyaechie who hails from Umuozu, Imo State, was overjoyed despite the loss of his job.
According to the new dad, the kids, as well as their mother, are all doing well.
“I believe that the Almighty, who is aware of the birth of the innocent babies, would provide them with their daily bread from his bounties, despite losing my bank job due to the current economic predicament.”
Anyachie was one of the recently laid off staff members of Ecobank Kano and noted that he is concerned about what the future might hold for himself and his family.
“But as a pious Christian, I finally pitched my hope in God, who will neither disappoint nor frustrate me,” he said.
The Medical Director of Green Land Clinics and Maternity where the children were born, Dr Frank Akabudu, noted that it was the first set of triplets born in the hospital since it opened its doors seven years ago.
He said, “They were delivered with two minutes intervals via caesarian section, which lasted for about one hour.”
The consultant obstetrician/gynaecologist who delivered the babies said the weights of each of the triplets were 2.1 kg, 2.3 kg and 2.0 kg, respectively.
