HUMAN INTEREST

We waited for 17 years to have baby 
By Bukola Adebayo 

The saying that “a patient dog eats the fattest bone,” could be used to describe the experience of a couple, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Olayiwola, who on Thursday had a set of quadruplets at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi- Araba, after 17 years of marriage without a child.

 Narrating her experience, Victoria, a business woman, said on the advice of her husband, she stopped trading about three years ago so that she could devote more time for proper medical consultation.
“Words cannot describe how I felt when I found out we would have quadruplets. I am elated, the delivery was short and my babies are fine. I am thankful to God,” Victoria said.
She said she got married on March 4, 1995, and after 15 years of visiting several private hospitals in her quest to have a baby, the couple planned to seek help in a United Kingdom hospital.
But Victoria said before they could perfect their plan, they were referred to specialists in LUTH in 2010.
“We had already secured Visas to go for medical examinations abroad because we had been to several hospitals in the country but when we came to LUTH, they reassured us that they could equally provide the medical services we were going to get abroad,” she said.
She called on the Federal Government to equip its hospitals and also provide adequate infrastructure, adding that poor medical facilities would discourage people from patronising government hospitals.
She said, “We have the experts and specialists. In fact, our doctors are the best abroad. But we are worried about electricity because we know that most of the medical equipment will require electricity to work.
“I urge the government to encourage Nigerians to patronise our hospitals by equipping them with infrastructure that our medical personnel will need.”
The babies who are presently at the neo-natal ward of the hospital were delivered through elective Caesarean Section, which lasted between 10.42 pm and 10.49 pm on Thursday.
The babies are the first set of quadruplets to be born at the hospital this year.
The 42-year-old mother of three girls and a boy told Metro at the Ward-C 2 of the hospital on Monday that the babies were enjoying adequate medical care at the hospital.
The head, Public Relations Department of the hospital, Mrs. Hope Nwakolo, said the babies weighed 2.2 kg, 1.85 kg, 1.75 kg and 2kg respectively at birth and were born prematurely at a gestational period of 35 weeks.
Nwakolo said the babies had good chances of surviving due to their healthy weights at birth in addition to the well-equipped paediatric ward and experts who had been attending to them and their mother.
Meanwhile, the elated father of the babies, Mr. Segun Olayiwola, who is the General Overseer of the Living God Preparatory Assembly, Abule-Egba, Lagos, said he was financially capable of providing for the babies but would welcome support from interested Nigerians, governments and organisations.
Olayiwola said, “I waited for this long because I had trust in God. The ultrasound initially revealed three babies which we had always wanted but two weeks later, one of the eggs broke and we were told to prepare for four babies. I was compensated with four babies at a time after 17 years.”
The 48- year-old father advised childless couples to be firm in their faith, seek medical assistance early and also protect their spouses from victimisation from families and friends.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
