After 10-Years of Marriage, Doctor’s Wife Delivers Quintuplets ...Couple Receives N1m Donation


Quintuplets are five children born at one birth. However, the wife of a medical practitioner at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, Dr. Ekpo Edet, has delivered a set of quintuplets after 10 years of marriage.

Edet, whose wife gave birth on Monday through normal delivery, said they had been without a child for 10 years.

He said that his joy knew no bound when his wife successfully delivered three girls and two boys.

"This is the first time in the history of the state that a woman is delivering five children at a go and all the babies are perfectly in good condition.

“I am happy that the UCTH has also set a record of delivering five children safely from one mother. The quintuplets are weighing between 1.45kg and 1.75kg. They are currently in the Special Care Babies Unit of the hospital,” Chief Medical Director of UCTH, Dr. Thomas Agan revealed.

Earlier, wife of the state governor, Dr. Linda Ayade, had visited the couple, saying that the quintuplets were a blessing to the state and Nigeria at large.

During the visit, Ayade made a donation of N1m to the couple and another N500,000 to the medical experts who ensured their safe delivery.


The wife of the governor also donated an incubator machine to the hospital on behalf of the state government, with a view to enhancing the hospital’s service delivery.
