Her husband, Mr. Celestine Uzodike, who hails from Omogho, in Orumba North Local Government Area is a junior aide to Governor Chukwuma Soludo.

It was both tears of joy and sorrow for her as she lamented that she had not been paid salaries since she started working at the institution in December 2020.

Speaking to journalists on Wednesday Uzodike said his wife was properly engaged as a lecturer at the institution, but unfortunately, had not been paid since.

He lamented that his wife had never earned a kobo as salary, even after she had been promoted from Assistant Lecturer to Lecturer II.

He, however, appealed to the Federal Government to pay the two years salary arrears owned to the new mother, and also come to their aid.

He said they aren’t able to foot the hospital bill and take care of the surviving two boys and four girls, alone.

He said,

The babies came out prematurely at 26th week gestation period and the hospital said they will need to be placed under intensive care unit and each of them will cost N3million. One of them has died, remaining six babies, that is why they billed us like that.”

The new mother said,

All I want is for philanthropists both in Anambra State and Nigeria at large to come to our aid in other to offset the hospital bill.”
