history of Cross River State, the first time in
the history of UCTH; 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.
“I want to thank God almighty for this
precious gift of five children. He is a faithful
God; the children are kicking and in good
condition.
“God has been faithful to my family; five
children at a go is indeed a wonderful
blessing to me and my wife.

happy mood. The Lord has done it for them.

the couple.

state that a woman is delivering five children
at a go and all the babies are perfectly in
good condition.

record of delivering five children safely from
one mother.
“The quintuplets are weighing between
1.45kg and 1.75kg. There are currently in the
Special Care Babies Unit of the hospital,’’ he
