Mr Wale Raji, member of House Representatives (APC-Epe) has called for institutionalisation of social safety net for indigent families blessed with triplets in his constituency.
Raji, who was represented by his wife, Mrs Funsho Raji, made the call after the presentation of undisclosed cash and materials to Mrs Kafilat Adebayo who was delivered of a triplet at Epe General Hospital on Wednesday.
The lawmaker expressed delight at the wonderful gift of the triplet to the family and to Epe community as a whole.
Responding, Adebayo thanked the lawmaker for the kind gesture.
She said she was delivered of the triplet at noon, two males and one female.
Adebayo urged other public-spirited Nigerians to come to the aid of the family.
“We have little or no resources to meet the financial demands of raising the kids who are still in the incubator at Epe General Hospital.
“We solicit support of individuals, government and other well-meaning Nigerians,” she said. .
