First Lady Visits New Year Baby in Abuja

The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, visited the first baby of the year on January 1, 2014, Wednesday, at the Gwarimpa General Hospital in Abuja, and prayed that he would grow in peace.
The first baby, yet to be named, was born to Mr. and Mrs. Zubairu at 12.45 a.m. through Caesarean section and weighed 3.5kg at birth.
Mrs. Jonathan, who was represented by Onyeka Onwenu, the Director-General, National Council for Women Development, said “babies are special gifts from God.”
“I wish them God’s blessings, peace and tranquility. The children will grow in peace and will be great because children are special gifts from God,” she said to journalists after the visit.
The elated mother of the first 2014 baby, Fatima Zubairu, thanked the First Lady for the visit.
She also thanked her for the gifts given her and promised to give the best quality education to the child.
“I am happy and grateful for this visit and by Allah’s grace, we shall give the child the best education we can afford and may God reward the First Lady for this kind gesture,” Mrs. Zubairu said.
Baby Zubairu was flanked by a group of 10 other babies also born on January 1, consisting of seven boys.
