Ado-Doguwa who announced this during Tuesday’s plenary, said his 28th child was born in the last 24 hours. He also vowed to continue giving birth to more children.
His revelation followed a congratulatory message from House Minority Leader Ndudi Elumelu over the birth of his child
The lawmaker with four wives represents Doguwa/Tudun Wada Federal Constituency, disclosed that he intends to increase the number of his children to 30 before the 2023 elections as he is in his 50s and still active.
“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 has gotten an additional one person. It is a baby girl.
“The mother and the baby are hale hearty. The husband is still active. I am here. And I thank God that I kept my word with the House that while I had 27 I promised you that I would continue counting. I want by the grace of God and your prayers that the count would continue.”
Doguwa also mulled creating legislation to enable families with 30 children to get an electoral polling unit.
“Now that we are considering the Electoral Act amendment, I would also when we get to the floor perhaps in the Committee of the Whole, I would appeal to my members so that we suspend relevant rules and we have a clause in the Electoral Act where it permits families that do have up to 30 kids in their homes to have an electoral polling unit in that family.”
Speaker Femi Gbajbiamila asked if he was working towards a polling unit in his house with two to go, Ado-Doguwa said;
“At least between now and 2023 before the elections comes, if you allow that, then I would have a polling unit within my home.”
