After ten years of waiting for a child, a couple gave birth to quintuplets comprising of three girls and two boys in the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH).

The proud father of the quintuplets, Dr Ekpo Edet, could not hold back his joy and excitement he said “I want to thank God almighty, He’s a faithful God. Five at a go! God has been just been faithful as we have concluded the first phase and the doctors have confirmed that the babies are kicking. We are entering into the second phase and I know it’s not going to be easy but I solicit for support from all well-meaning Nigerians, all my friends and well-wishers.

Wife of the governor, Dr Linda Ayade, who visited the couple in the hospital, expressed delight as this was another first in the State’s history. She said it’s a sign of good tidings in the state and country at large. She thanked the new mother for opting for professional services of birth attendants. She showered the babies with prayers and donated the sum of N1 million to the parents of the quintuplet.
