Wife of the Ekiti State Governor, Chief Bisi Fayemi, has assured the mother of a set of triplets, Mrs. Abosede Omole, of her readiness to rehabilitate her and her newborn babies.

Mrs. Fayemi equally appealed to Abosede's husband, who is on the run, to return to his wife and join her to care of the children.

The governor's wife said she would set the mother of the triplets up in any business of her choice apart from settling her accumulated medical bill.

She made the promise on Tuesday during her visit to the nursing mother at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, where the triplets are receiving medical attention.

Omole's husband, Adewale, absconded shortly after his wife, who already had two children, delivered the babies at EKSUTH.

The governor's wife donated cash and other gift items to the nursing mother, who was being assisted at the hospital by her mother, Mrs. Dupe Afolabi.

She described the action of Abosede's husband as ridiculous, advising him to return to his wife and children to seek forgiveness.

Mrs. Fayemi said, 'Instead of abandoning his wife to her fate, he should have sought assistance of the state government through the Multiple Birth Trust Fund.

'Some families with multiple births in Ekiti State are benefiting from the scheme and other assistance through the Ekiti Development Foundation.

'I'm appealing to Mr. Omole, wherever he is, to please return to his wife and children. He cannot run away from his responsibilities. These children may be future stars.

'I want to use this opportunity to say that we need a law to prevent men from abandoning their responsibilities in the state.

'There are too many instances where men abandon their families and take off. They abandon their wives in hospitals when they are presented with surgery bills on the excuse that they are going to look for money.'
