So sad. At the end of the day just one baby survived and it looks like a normal single birth. Hmmm... ***sighs*** (Get a bigger penis @ https://penisenlargementgym.com)

Praising themselves for killing 3 babies out of 4. North west and north east are the cause of nigeria's failure, yet their leaders feel they are born to rule. Buhari was governor of entire North East. Go figure.

prematurity! leading cause of neonatal death. As the babies were born premature, why not FMC scale up the quality of care being given to these babies to ensure their survival. SMH. government visitation to the hospital is good but not a way of ensuring safe motherhood and safe child.
