“The elated father, Dr Kehinde Osiki of the Department of History and Strategic Studies at the University of Lagos, was on ground to witness the safe delivery of the babies.

“Osiki could not hide his joy at the arrival of the babies.”

He was cited as saying that “technology has brought relief to problems often attributed to spirituality.

Otegbayo depicted it as another success story for UCH.

He declared that the dedication to take UCH to a desired level had worked out with the beginning of the IVF in 2020 and the delivery of the first set of babies via the process.
