The wife of the Governor of Ekiti State, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, has presented cash and material gifts to a set of triplets at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital in Ado-Ekiti.
Bisi presented the gifts when she paid a special visit to the parents and the baby at the hospital.
The triplets are the first children of 71-year-old Venerable Hezekiah Akenroye, a retired Anglican Priest, and his wife, Mrs. Durodoluwa Felicia Akenroye, 45, who were married in April 2016.
The wife of the septuagenarian clergyman gave birth to the babies on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.
The babies weighed 2.3kg, 2.0kg, and 1.8 kg respectively.
Speaking at the hospital, Bisi urged the parents to raise the children in the way of the Lord.
She said the birth of the triplets to the couple is evidence that God answers prayers.
Congratulating the couple, she advised couples looking for children not to lose hope and keep believing in God.
The 71-year-old Venerable Akenroye appreciated the first lady for her kind gesture while expressing his happiness for being blessed with the triplets after many years of waiting.
He admitted he never believed God can still make him a father in life, stressing that God’s time is always the best.
