In a traditional African home, having children is key, it is a total definition of family. A couple in Osogbo beat the odds as they finally welcomed a set of twins after 31 years of marriage.
The news was shared by Nikeagbeja Adesanya, a Facebook user, who revealed that the couple got married in 1989.
Adesanya wrote that though she once read about the biblical examples of Sarah and Elizabeth, she is a living witness of the one that happened to Iyabo Ajewole at The Apostolic Church, Nigeria.
The babies’ names were given as Irewole and Ayowole Ajewole.
Meanwhile, the US visa ban placed on Nigeria and 13 other countries on 30 January aborted Saheed’s plan to give his family a comfortable life in America.
Prior to the ban, 32-year-old Saheed hoped to buy a house in Houston, move together with his wife Azeezat and have children.
The Nigerian man met Azeezat through his aunt in Nigeria as the two had a special connection over their similar medical backgrounds.
After their marriage, the wife’s paper to travel was arranged as they waited for the whole process to be completed.
Saheed said nothing is sadder than for newlyweds to face the uncertainty that they may never be together in the same place.
Busayo Fasidi, a family immigration lawyer in the US, said the people who are trying to bring their families from overseas will be gravely affected by the ban.
