House of Representatives majority leader, Hon Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, has welcomed his 28th child, a baby girl.
The lawmaker representing Doguwa/Tudun Wada federal constituency of Kano state in the House of Representatives, who disclosed this at the plenary session in Abuja on Tuesday, January 25, said the child was born in the last 24 hours.
The 56-year-old noted that he’s still very active and hopes to hit his target of 30 children before the 2023 elections. He added that if the members permit, he wants to have a polling unit in his compound.
“This is no longer news. It is no longer news because this thing happened in the last 24 hours. It is true that my beloved family has gotten an additional one person. It is a bouncing baby girl.
The mother and the baby are hale and hearty. The husband is still active. I am here and I thank God that I kept my word with the House while I had 27 that I would continue counting. By the grace of God and your prayers, the count would continue.
Also, now that we are considering the Electoral Act amendment and when we get to the floor perhaps in the Committee of the Whole, I would appeal to my members so that we suspend relevant rules and we have a clause in the Electoral Act where it permits families that do have up to 30 kids to have an electoral polling unit in that family.” Vanguard quoted him as saying.
