The House of Representatives Majority Leader, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa who has four wives, has welcomed his 28th child, a baby girl.
Ado-Doguwa who represents Doguwa/Tudun Wada Federal Constituency revealed the birth of his 28th child at the plenary session on Tuesday while responding to a congratulatory comment from the House Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu (PDP-Delta).
He brought all his four wives to the floor of the house and presented them to the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila during the plenary session.
Ado-Doguwa said he is still active and hopes to have 30 children before the 2023 general election.
“This is no longer news. It is no longer news because this thing happened in the last 24 hours. It is true that my beloved family has gotten an additional one person. It is a bouncing baby girl.
“The mother and the baby are hale and hearty. The husband is still active. I am here and I thank God that I kept my word with the House that while I had 27 I promised you that I would continue counting. By the grace of God and your prayers, the count would continue”, he said.
“Now that we are considering the Electoral Act amendment and when we get to the floor perhaps in the Committee of the Whole, I would appeal to my members so that we suspend relevant rules and we have a clause in the Electoral Act where it permits families that do have up to 30 kids in their homes to have an electoral polling unit in that family.”
