Ekiti State To Start Sanctioning Men Who Abandon Wives After Childbirth

Wife of Ekiti State Governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, has assured a stranded mother of a newborn set of triplets, Mrs. Abosede Omole, of her preparedness to rehabilitate her.

Beyond settling the hapless woman's accumulated medical bill, the governor's said she would set her up in a business of her choice pending the anticipated return of her runaway husband.

She said the comforting words during her visit to the nursing mother at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, where the triplets are receiving medical attention, on Tuesday.

The governor's wife donated cash and gift items to the nursing mother, whose only companion had been her mother, Mrs. Dupe Afolabi, since she her husband deserted her.

Describing the action of the woman's husband as unbecoming, the First Lady appealed to the fleeing man, identified as Mr. Adewale Omole, to return to his wife and children to seek forgiveness.

Instead of abandoning his wife to her fate, the governor's wife said the head of the family should have sought assistance of the state government through the Multiple Birth Trust Fund.

She said several families with multiple births in Ekiti State were benefitting from the scheme and other forms of assistance through the Ekiti Development Foundation, which made Omole's action inexcusable.
