How I gave over 300 babies to childless couples in Anambra — Prof Ikechebelu
Posted by News Express | 19 June 2021 | 636 times
Professor Joseph Ikechebelu, the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration) Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, Anambra state has advised husbands to stop blaming their wives for not having children for them instead they should seek out the right technology and they would have as many children as they want.
Ikechebelu gave the advise shortly after receiving an award for excellent medical practice by Anambra state chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations in Awka at the weekend.
He said that by the powers conferred on him by God and medical science through the instrumentality of Assisted Reproductive Technology, he could make childless couple achieve a pregnancy.
The medical expert who is a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology said he started the technology in Anambra since 2010 and that as at the last count over 300 babies have been delivered through the technology at Life International Hospital Awka.
According to him, a typical example of the beneficiary of the assisted reproductive technology was the current Vice Chancellor Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Prof. Charles Okechukwu Esimone whom the technology gave quadruplets.
He said some commissioners, lecturers and a host of other Nigerians from far and near have been beneficiaries of the aforestated technology and that childlessness and barrenness have become a thing of the past in their marital lives.
The DVC Administration however lauded the health index of Anambra state saying that by way of comparative analysis maternal mortality rate was something to write home about because the state health insurance scheme and other indicators are functional.
He therefore reiterated the need for government to continue to champion areas of maternal and child health care and continue to also ensure that community health insurance and insurance that the state has put in place continues to function so that cost wouldn’t be an issue stopping people from accessing healthcare while health infrastructures are maintained too to guarantee unhindered access to medical services across the state.
