A mother of triplet, Mrs Joyce Peter, has appealed for financial assistance to enable her take care of the babies.
Joyce, who is from Delta State but resides with her husband in Port Harcour, made the appeal, yesterday, saying things had been very difficult for her family since she had the children on July 30.
Joyce, who is a fresh graduate of English language, said her husband is in the entertainment industry, adding that he was yet to find his feet.
She said: “They are my first children. I had them through caesarean operation, CS. The cost of taking care of them is so heavy on me and my husband. I am appealing to Nigerians to assist us.
“Things are rough with us. I have not started working, so to a large extent I don’t do anything for a living.
“My husband earns a little from his job as a musician and this can hardly help the situation. I am begging Nigerians to come to our aide. They should please help.”
She said her mother was still alive but a petty farmer in the village, adding that her father died long ago.
