“My wife delivered quadruplets on Thursday. I live in one room in Ogbomoso. I am a butcher. I am 30 years old, and my wife is 27 years old. She is a trader.
“We don’t have money. I wanted her to abort the babies before, because we don’t have money. We did a scan at Genesis Medical Diagnostics Centre and they told us there were four babies. I said we don’t have money and she should abort it, but the centre told us not to abort it. They were the ones who helped us until she gave birth.
“We don’t have money. I want governments at all levels to support us, because it is beyond us. I don’t have anyone to support us. I want governments to support us.
“The babies are currently in the incubator at LAUTECH teaching hospital, Ogbomoso,” he said.
