Governor Mimiko’s wife assists yam seller to deliver twins at meeting venue

Governor Mimiko’s wife assists yam seller to deliver twins at meeting venue 1

Wife of the Ondo State governor, Mrs. Olukemi Mimiko, yesterday assisted in the delivery of a set of twins at the venue of her monthly ‘Gbebiro’ programme with community women in Ikare Akoko. A 29-year-old pregnant woman suddenly developed signs of discomfort in the middle of the meeting and Mimiko’s wife provided urgent support for her through her mobile health team and a non-governmental organisation, the Maternal Pulse.

The ambulance in the convoy of the governor’s wife was driven to the venue and within minutes, Mrs. Ajimo Ogunsusi, a yam seller, was delivered of two babies, a boy and a girl. The woman and her babies were later taken to the state Specialist Hospital, Ikare Akoko for a comprehensive healthcare. Mimiko, who expressed joy at the birth of the twins, attributed the timely intervention to the Safe Motherhood Abiye programme of her husband, which had simplified delivery of pregnant women without stress. She said delivery of babies could now take place inside a tricycle ambulance, boat ambulance and even four-wheel vehicle ambulances.
