identified Preventive Health Care delivery as a key welfare programme
of any good government.

mother of triplet in Benin City. Ogiemwonyi, who was at a private

triplet remarked that judging by the current economic challenges in the
country, it is difficult for an average home to live averagely, let
alone someone with triplet.

key focus and
therefore charged Nigerians, especially, the affluent ones,

the new babies.

the All Progressives Congress (APC) was the motivating factor for his
visit to the medical centre for the purpose of identifying and
celebrating with the family of the triplet.
He prayed God to grant the triplet, exceeding grace in life such that
they would become successful in their various endeavour when they grow
