House of Representatives Majority Leader Alhassan Ado-Doguwa has welcomed his 28th child.

Ado-Doguwa, while responding to a congratulatory comment from the House Minority Leader Ndudi Elumelu during plenary on Tuesday, said the child was born in the last 24 hours.

The House Leader, in his 50s, said he intends to get more as he is still active and prepared to get 30 before the 2023 elections.

The lawmaker, who represents Doguwa/Tudun Wada Federal Constituency and a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has four wives.

He said: “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. 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 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 joked about creating legislation to enable families with 30 children to get an electoral polling unit, as this was his target.

“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,” he said.

When Speaker Femi Gbajbiamila asked if he was working towards a polling unit in his house with two to go, Ado-Doguwa responded: “At least between now and 2023 before the elections come, if you allow that, then I would have a polling unit within my home.”
