Queen Silekunola announced the pledge on Wednesday after a visit to Sckyé Hospital Ltd in Akure, the state capital, last weekend.
“On this visit, I gave gift items to newly delivered mothers and equally gave my support to a woman who was delivered of a set of triplets
“The triplets were delivered by caesarean section a week ago for free in the hospital.
“I am thankful to the management of the hospital for rendering free antenatal services to pregnant women since 2004, including free blood and urine tests, free drugs, free ultrasound scan, free vaginal delivery and free Caesarean sections for higher-order multiple gestations which extends to free baby incubation services, free baby food and free triplet colts.
“On my first visit to the hospital I made a promise to constantly support them on the platform of my NGO Women In Need of Guidance and Support (WINGS) It was in fulfilment of this promise that I visited again upon hearing the news of the birth of the OBODOZIE triplets,” she wrote.
