Senate Minority Whip, Sen. Osita Ngwu has extended helping hands to two women from Enugu West Senatorial District who were recently delivered of triplets each.

Ngwu, who represents Enugu West Senatorial District, handed cash gifts to the mothers to assist them in the settlement of their hospital bills. 

A statement by Ngwu's media adviser, Dr. Luke Mgboh stated that the mothers are Mrs Chinenye Jacinta Ekedobe from Emudo Nenwe Ward 3 in Aninri LGA, of Enugu State who was delivered of her babies at Goodwill Medical Centre, Harmony Road, Umuchigbo, Enugu and Mrs Okafor Confidence from Ukete Oduma in Aninri Local Government Area of Enugu State who was  delivered of her babies at Akachukwu  Hospital, Nkpo Anambra State. 

Both mothers and babies were in good condition at the time the federal lawmaker's financial support was given to them.

Represented at the different hospitals by the Coordinator of Humanitarian Initiative for the Needy in Enugu West, Hon. Ike Ozor and the SSA on Aninri Constituency Matters, Hon Aja James Anayo, the Senator, expressed gratitude to God for the safe deliveries and assured the women and their babies of his continued prayers and assistance to them.

He used the opportunity to assure his constituents of his commitment to effective representation at the Senate and comprehensive infrastructural development to the zone.

The Senator noted with joy that children were the greatest gifts from God and for the women who got triplets it was a triple blessing that needs to be celebrated, saying the assistance will go a long way in helping them to take care of children.

According to his representative, this gesture was among other legislative interventions by the Senator who is highly committed to healthcare delivery not just in his constituency but the country at large.

Hon. Nwozor noted that it is due to this  commitment to the availability, accessibility and affordability of quality healthcare by the Senate Minority Whip that informed his sponsoring of a Bill seeking for an Act to establish the Health Infrastructure Development Agency so as to provide a comprehensive framework to guide the planning, financing, construction, maintenance, and regulation of healthcare infrastructure in Nigeria.

He said the bill, which is currently before the Senate and has passed second reading, seeks to promote development and improvement of healthcare infrastructure so as to enhance healthcare access, quality, and delivery across the country.

In their separate remarks, the two mothers poured out their hearts to Senator Ngwu for coming to their support in the face of the current economic realities which stared them in the face and they prayed to God to bless the lawmaker in triple fold just as they were blessed with triplets.
