Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson and his wife Dr (Mrs) Rachel welcomed a set of quadruplets in September, 2016.
The babies, a boy and 3 girls who came after 15 years of childlessness for the governor and his wife, were delivered at a hospital in America.
On Sunday, 14th January 2018, the governor and his wife organized a party to celebrate their first birthday in Yenagoa, Bayelsa.
The beautiful quadruplets; Alexander, Alaere, Ebierewarisuode and Edimere were a year and three months old on Sunday.
Recall that the First Lady gave birth to the four babies through Vitro Fertilization (IVF) process.
The governor is said to be officially married to two wives, the First Lady being the second.
The governor, with the arrival of the quadruplet is reportedly now blessed with no fewer than 15 children.
Meanwhile, a Nigerian nurse gave birth to quadruplets after 17 years of marriage in December last year.
Hadiza Ndayebo gave birth at the Jumai Babangida Aliyu Maternal and Neonatal Hospital in Minna, the Niger State capital.
One of the babies, however, died shortly after birth.
It was gathered that the nurse got pregnant through artificial insemination after waiting for many years.
According to reports, the mother of quadruplets had been on admission in the hospital for over seven months for proper monitoring before she was delivered of the babies on Monday.
“I went through artificial insemination because I had been battling with infertility for over 16 years. By December 28, it will be my 17th year in marriage. Although 10 years ago I had a normal pregnancy but I gave birth pre-term at 28 weeks and the baby died after some days,” she explained.
Ndayebo, who is the second wife of her husband, said none of her family members believed her when she informed them that she was pregnant with quadruplets.
She said although one of the babies died, she was grateful that she had been compensated for the long years of barrenness.
“The babies are two males and two females. Losing one of the female is the will of God. My family did not believe I was carrying quadruplets but they are joyous when they came.”
