The father of a quadruplets ; two boys and two girls, Mr Cisse Abdullahi, has sought the help of Lagos State government for proper upbringing of the children.
Abdullah, who is a native of Ilorin living at Kumapayi, Baale Bus Stop, Oko-Afo, Badagry, made this call on Thursday, adding that he needs financial assistance from the State Government for the children’s upkeep.
He further called on other well-meaning Nigerians in the country to help feed his children.
According to him, I am a 38-year old jobless man. I was sacked from my former job because of lack of sales.
“A present, I am jobless. The man I am working for has asked us to go home for some weeks because there are no sales.
“Things have become so hard for me and my wife, Sekinat, who is a fashion designer and cannot go to work because of caring for the children.
“The room and parlour we are managing is not conducive for us, but there is nothing I can do because I can’t afford three-bedroom.”
He therefore said he got tired when he couldn’t feed his kids and their mother, one year after their birth, with the little income he gets from his work at Apapa.
Abdullahi said he had managed to care for the quadruplets with assistance from friends and the little money he received from fellow Nigerians when they were born in 2022.
“So many Nigerians assisted me when my wife delivered at the General Hospital in Badagry and I have used part of the money to take care of them when they were out of the hospital.
“Things are getting worse daily, I have an aged mother to take care of as well; this is why I have to call on Gov. Sanwo-Olu to assist me.
“I wouldn’t mind working in any Lagos State ministry. I have my Secondary School certificate and I am very strong.
“I am also appealing to well-meaning Nigerians to come to my aid and help me so that I can train my quadruplets to be well-educated.
“I stopped my education at the secondary school level, but I want to train my children to university level,” Abdullahi said.
It was gathered that on April 28, 2022, the father attempted to run away to the Republic of Benin after his wife delivered the quadruplets.
He said that only N3,500 was in his possession when he heard that his wife had delivered them.
”It was a piece of good news, but my present financial status made me make such a move,” Abdullahi said.
