3. Austin Ohenhen

A Nigerian man from Edo state, Austin Ohenhen, ran away when his wife gave birth to quadruplets.

The man said that he only returned after family members encouraged and made him see the good in the situation that scared him.

Austin's wife said when she knew she was pregnant, she considered aborting the pregnancy but there was no money to carry it out. Following their interview with Legit TV, Nigerians donated towards their welfare.

Be prepared for parenthood

Before thinking about parenthood, it is important for both parents to be mentally and financially prepared to handle the responsibilities.

Intentional parenthood is significant as the family is the first agent of socialisation, and whatever goes wrong in families affects society.
