A 29-year-old indigene of Oyo State, Suliyat Tijani who on July 1 got delivered of a set of quadruplets in Dubai years after she relocated to be with her Chef Husband, Shakiru has cried for help as her husband’s salary has been slashed in half and he has no medical insurance cover for his wife or children.
“When my wife told me she was pregnant, and she went for a scan, I told her she was joking,” Shakiru (her husband) said to Channels Television.
“I never thought of having four babies, because there’s no money,” the new mother also said.
The couple now faces hospital bills of over 30 million naira after she went into labour and delivered the set of quadruplets.
COVID-19 induced restrictions on air travel between Nigeria and Dubai has resulted in financial woes for a young Nigerian mother, whose plan to return home before the birth of her children, has failed.
Delivering the babies in Dubai was not an option they could afford and so they made plans for her to return to Nigeria.
However, COVID-19 restrictions on air travel between Nigeria and Dubai did not make that trip possible in time.
