“This is no longer news. It is no longer news because this thing happened in the last 24 hours. It is true that my beloved family has gotten an additional one person. It is a baby girl. Bouncing.
“The mother and the baby are hale hearty. The husband is still active. I am here. And I thank God that I kept my word with the House that while I had 27 I promised you that I would continue counting. I want by the grace of God and your prayers that the count would continue.”
Plan to get electoral polling unit for family
Doguwa also reportedly joked about creating legislation to enable families with 30 children to get an electoral polling unit, as this was his target.
