Mr Ifeanyi Ugwu, who reportedly abandoned his wife, Mrs Precious Ebere Ugwu, after she gave birth to a quadruplet at Enugu State University Teaching Hospital [ESUTH], Parklane, Enugu, has resurfaced.His reappearance came less than one week after a Media Aide to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Mr Jonathan Emmanuel, and his wife, Pharmacist Nkechinyere, picked the hospital bill.Moved by pity over the condition of the abandoned Mrs. Precious and her four babies , the Governor’s Aide whose passion for philanthropy is remarkable, stormed the hospital on Wednesday, June 19 and settled the hospital bill after reading about the incident on facebook.Meanwhile, the run-away husband but now elated, has since re-united with the family, though with apologies to the wife for absconding when it counted most.
Speaking with Wawa News Global on phone , Ugwu expressed gratitude to Almighty God for his love and kindness, and all the people whom God used to come to their rescue.
He said that he was in great pain as at the time his wife was delivered of the quadruplet due to his poor financial state following the collapse of his small scale business.He showered encomiums on the Governor’s Aide for his humanitarian gesture which has rekindled the hope of the family.Ugwu, however, appealed for additional support from members of the public to enable him start off a new business, so he can fend for his family
It was equally gathered that the wife, Mrs Precious Ugwu is an unemployed graduate but entered into marriage with his hearthrob, both of whom hails from a community in Nsukka local government area of Enugu state. .
For the young couple, the much they expected when they decided to go into conjugal relationship was a twin in view of their economic background.But the Almighty God in his wisdom blessed them in multiples in the first pregnancy, as the wife Precious was safely delivered of quadruplet by gynecologists at Enugu State University Teaching Hospital [ESUTH], Parklane Enugu.
But the gift of three boys and a girl at one delivery instead of being a thing of joy to the couple became a source of worry, obviously due to their low economic background amidst prevailing economic hardship in the country. But why the husband, Mr Ifeanyi Ugwu, decided to abandon his wife with the four kids at nobody’s care is a story for another day.
Though the pitiable condition of the wife and four kids attracted the sympathy of the hospital workers and visiting members of the public, it was not to the extent of letting her to go without paying her hospital bills, as she was finally discharged on May 27.She remained within the premises of the hospital in line with the hospital’s existing culture of not allowing a discharged but indebted patient go from the hospital until whenever, payable.

However, he admitted he is emulating the humane nature of Governor Ugwuanyi, who has been imparting on the lives of the down trodden in society, even before he became the governor of Enugu state.But in his own case, he is only doing the very little he can afford with the support and understanding of his wife.
