Woman, 57, Delivers Twins 31 Years After Marriage


A 57 year-old teacher, Mrs Anike Ajayi, on Monday gave birth to twins after 31 years of childlessness in Ekiti.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ajayi teaches at Muslim Grammar School, Oke-Ila, Housing Road, Ado Ekiti.

She described the delivery as a ‘miracle’, saying she gave birth to a boy and a girl after her menstrual circle stopped.

“I thank God for what He has done in my life. I got married precisely on 18 December, 1982.

“Since then, I have not been able to conceive. This is more than a miracle and I give God the glory for His mercies over my life.

“Many people had mocked me over the years, but I thank God that He finally answered my prayers,” she said.

Ajayi attributed the birth of the twins to the goodness of God in her life.

She said God answered her prayer as a result of her steadfastness, unshaken faith in the scriptures and refusal to lose hope in God’s power.

The husband, Mr  Olu Ajayi, 65, thanked the name of God for His kindness to his family, saying the babies were to console him for the years of childlessness.

In a reaction, Rev. Woleola Ajileye, General Overseer of The Way of Life Bible Church, Ado-Ekiti, which the couple attends, thanked God for the babies.

She advised the couple to care and train the children with the principles of God.
