Four babies at the first go! That is the joyful lot of Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State after his wife,Rachael, yesterday delivered a set of quadruplets in an undisclosed hospital in the United States of America (USA).
The boy and three girls are the couple’s first children after many years of marriage.
And they came 24 hours after the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja upheld Dickson’s election for a second term in the January 9 poll.
The governor’s Chief Press Secretary Daniel Iworiso-Markson broke the news to reporters yesterday.
He said: “The season of celebrations continues in the family of Governor Henry Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State as his wife, the First Lady, Dr. Rachael Dickson just put to bed in the United States of America.
“She was delivered of a quadruplet; a bouncing baby boy and three beautiful baby girls. Mother and children are doing well.
“This is particularly good news for the family and Bayelsans because this bundle of joy is coming after many years of praying and waiting upon the Lord.
“Governor Dickson thanks friends, family members and Bayelsans for their prayers and support and enjoins them to continue to pray for the family”.
