Dr. Rachael Dickson, wife of the Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has been delivered of a set of quadruplets in the United States of America.
A statement on Friday by Dickson’s Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, indicated that the babies were a boy and three girls.
The babies came after many years of childlessness for the governor’s wife.
The 43-year-old mother, a graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, is doing well with the infants, according to the statement.
The statement said, “The season of celebrations continues in the family of Governor Henry Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State as his wife, the First Lady, Dr. Rachael Dickson, was delivered of a set of quadruplets: a bouncing baby boy and three beautiful baby girls. She gave birth in the United States. Mother and children are doing well.
“This is particularly good news for the family and Bayelsans because this bundle of joy is coming after many years of praying and waiting upon the Lord.”
Governor Dickson was quoted in the statement as thanking friends, family members and the good people of the state for their prayers and support.
