The mother of the triplets, who are now nine months old, told South West
Voice, that her husband took to his heels when the news of the birth of
the triplets hit him.
Asked if he did a scan before the birth of the babies, Confidence said that if they have such money they will use it to feed.
“ We were actually leaving from hand to mouth. Every money we have we
spend it wisely because we do not have a Job. According to her “ my
husband left the house seven days to the day of delivery that he was
going to look for a job. Before the delivery he kept calling us on daily
basis but after the babies were delivered and he was informed by his
brother he switched off his phone. “ Since then we have not been able to
reach him and he has not called over a month ago.
She gave birth to the triplets free of charge through caesarian section
at the Mother and Child hospital in Akure, the state capital.
The couple already have three babies ( two boys and a girl) Uchena 7
years, Akachukwu 5 years and Bethel 2 years before these three additions
at a go. Speaking with South West Voice, Confidence said
“My husband went looking for money to take care of the family but when
we called him that I was delivered of three children he was shocked and
shouted. “ Since then he has switched off his phone and we do not know
his whereabouts and how we can reach him. “ I must confess to you that I
have not eaten any good food since I gave birth and even the children
have nothing good to eat and that is the reason I am using this
opportunity to appeal to government at all levels and well meaning
Nigerians to come to my rescue. “I am begging you to help me tell my
husband to come back home and see the triplets. I know that God will
Please help me publish in our newspaper and help me beg my husband to
come back home and see his children. I know it is not easy for him but
all the same he should not abandon us just like that. When he comes back
we will manage whatever is available until God will send help. “Because
our God lives. He knows why he gave us triplets and I am sure he will
make provision. Who can say, those triplets may open doors for our
family. “God knows we have three children before giving us this
additional three. We are surprised because nobody from both families
have twins. Why us at this time that we can not even feed well.
Confidence appealed passionately to the wife of the governor, Mrs
Olukemi Mimiko to come to their aid saying that the burden was too much
for them to bear. She also pleaded with the caring heart governor Dr
Olusegun Mimiko to assist the husband by providing a job for him.
Chinyere said a letter and photographs have been to the wife of the
governors office and the Ministry of women Affairs but that they have
not gotten any response. While saying that they were sure that their
matter was yet to be brought to the attention of the caring heart wife
of the governor appealed that she should through the medium come to the
aid of the Nweze family.

children and his own wife and two children. According to him

to please help my brother with a job. If he is sure of getting a Job he
will resurface. “ He is only natural that when a man does not have
money he would not be happy and he can do anything to protect his ego.
