Drama as Reps leader gets 28th child, proposes family ‘polling unit’


Drama ensued at the House of Representatives on Tuesday when it was announced that one of the wives of the Majority Leader, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, had been delivered of the lawmaker’s 28th child.

Ado-Doguwa, on a lighter note, said he was considering the allocation of a polling unit to his private home, as part of the amendments to the Electoral Act 2020, since he plans to have up to 30 children before the end of the current 9th National Assembly.

The drama began at the opening of the day’s plenary when the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, asked if the Majority Leader had any personal explanation or announcement to make to the House.

While Ado-Doguwa said there was none, the Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu, announced that the Majority Leader just had a new child.

Elumelu said, “Mr Speaker, mine is to congratulate my brother, the Leader of the House. He currently has 28 children and still counting. He just received double a few days ago. That makes it 28. It was 26, now 28.”

Gbajabiamila asked the Majority Leader to defend himself, saying he did not understand what Elumelu was saying.

Ado-Doguwa said, “Mr Speaker, I didn’t know that you were talking about me. This is no longer news. It is no longer news because this thing happened in the last 24 hours. It is true that my beloved family had gotten an additional one person, not two like you (Elumelu) said. And it is a baby girl, bouncing. The mother and the baby are hale and hearty. The husband is still active; I am here. And I thank God that I kept to my words to the House of Reps; that while I had 27, I promised you that I would continue counting. I want you to know, by the grace of God and your prayer, that the count will continue. Thank you and God bless Nigeria.”
