He, however, appealed to the federal government to pay the two years salary arrears owed to the new mother and also come to their aid.
“The babies came out prematurely at 26th week gestation period and the hospital said they will need to be placed under intensive care unit and each of them will cost N3million. One of them has died, remaining six babies, that is why they billed us like that.”
The mother, who was very weak to speak after the delivery, said:
“All I want is for philanthropists both in Anambra state and Nigeria at large to come to our aid in other to offset the hospital bill.”
