The gesture, the commissioner disclosed remains one of the Ministry’s humanitarian programmes tagged “Bounty for Families of Multiple Births” and is in line with the pet programme of the wife of the Cross River State Governor, Rev. Eyoanwan Otu.

The set of triplets being cared for by a good spirited couple, Mr and Mrs Ajah Ukam, is said to have lost their mother at birth, leaving behind their father with two other children in his Biase local government home to fend for, in spite of no tangible job at his disposal.

Briefing newsmen, Irom said, “we were touched upon hearing of the condition at which the set of triplets were being raised at such a tender stage of their life and it invoked our concern and consciousness to take responsibility of being their caregiver.

“Truly speaking, with the harsh economic condition Nigerians are facing, one wonders how demanding it would be to take care of this set of triplets who are four months old and depend solely on infant formula for and as their meals.

“This is why we are here to support the family in anyway possible so that they can adequately in turn take care of these children because they have the right to live and be taken care of,” Women Affairs Commissioner explained.

Irom thanked the family for their humanitarian gesture and charged other Nigerians to always be compassionate to each other as demonstrated by the Ukams.

She also appreciated the Governor’s wife for the show of love towards the wellbeing of all Cross Riverians, maintaining that, the State Government would continue to ensure that the children receive adequate attention.

The Ministry, during the visit, made cash presentation including other items worth thousands of Naira to their caregiver, for the wellbeing of the children.

The Commissioner was accompanied on the visit by the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Women Affairs, Dr Mary-Theresa Ebe, members of Nigeria Association of Women Journalists NAWOJ Cross River State Chapter led by the Chairperson Rekpene Uket and representatives of the Association of Wives of Judges in Cross River State.
