A couple has welcome quadruplets in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo state
- The couple had remained barren for 20 years before God answered them
- The father of new babies, Ibikunle Ajala, said God was so good to them for delivering four children at a time to make up for the past 20 years of waiting
An end came to a period of barrenness for a lucky couple, Mr and Mrs Ibikunle Ajala, in Ibadan when the wife was delivered of quadruplets.
The Nation reports that the couple had waited for 20 years before having children.
He said God was so good to them for delivering four children at a time to make up for the past 20 years of waiting.
“It is good to wait for God’s time. I must confess it has not been a rosy journey but we thank God for the grace to wait. Waiting is not the biggest issue, it is what one does at the time of waiting,” he said.
Sarah Ajala gave birth at a private hospital in Ibadan on Friday, November 3. She grinned from ear to ear as she welcomed well-wishers to her hospital room.
The couple got married in December 1997 and has since stayed closely knitted together since then.
While the husband is a senior officer with the Nigerian Immigration Service, his wife works with BOWEN University, Iwo, Osun state.
