After 17 years of childlessness, Nurse Hadiza Ndayebo has given birth to quadruplets at the Jumai Babangida Aliyu Maternal and Neonatal Hospital in Minna, Niger State.
Hadiza underwent an artificial insemination after waiting for many years, resulting in her pregnancy and eventual delivery of two males and two females.
However, one of the females died immediately after delivery. Hadiza had been on admission in the hospital for over seven months in order for her health to be monitored.
Her husband, Alfa Mamood, was also full of joy over the birth of the babies, saying that 17 years of endurance, patience and prayers had paid off.
The Staff Affairs Officer of the Human Babangida Aliyu Maternal and Neonatal Hospital, Nurse Comfort Tsado, said that the birth of the quadruplets was the first of its kind in the hospital.
