Septuplets are born to Mrs. Ngozi Uzodike, a lecturer at Nnamdi Azikiwe University in the state of Anambra (seven children).

The newly minted mother had two boys and five girls, it was discovered. One of the girls did not live, though.

On January 8, 2023, at the Obijackson Women and Children Hospital in Okija, the woman who teaches in the department of business administration at the college gave birth to seven infants.

According to information, the family’s hospital cost was 19 million naira.

The mother of seven expressed happiness about the development but lamented the fact that they hadn’t received pay since 2020.

Her husband, Mr. Celestine Uzodike, revealed to reporters on Wednesday that his wife had previously worked as a lecturer for the organization but hadn’t been paid.

Even though his wife had been promoted from Assistant Lecturer to Lecturer II, the man lamented the fact that she had never gotten a wage of even one kobo.

He pleaded with the FG to help them because they are unable to pay the bills for all of the children on their own. This includes paying his wife’s two-year salary arrears.

“The kids were born prematurely at 26 weeks gestation, and the hospital stated that each one would require an intensive care unit and cost N3 million. They billed us that way because one of the six babies that are still alive has perished.

“All I want is for benefactors both in Anambra State and Nigeria at large to come to our rescue in order to offset the hospital bill,” said Mrs. Uzodike, who was unable to speak after giving birth.
