As part of efforts to reduce infertility in Nigeria, six couples will begin free fertility treatment, courtesy of a veteran Comedian, Atunyota Akpobome, popularly known as Ali Baba and the Fertility Treatment Support Foundation (FTSF). The free fertility treatment, which is an initiative of the FTSF, will be done at the Nordica Fertility Centre, Lagos. The six lucky couples are Mr. Okon and Mrs. Vivian Eshiet; Mr. Humphrey and Mrs. Precious Oghomienor; Mr. Celestine and Mrs. ChikaUdoji ; Mr. Jeffrey and Mrs. OmololaAnioye; and Mrs. Pat Harry; and Mr. Musibau and Mrs. Halima Akande. Unveiling the couples in Lagos recently, the Founder, FSTF, Dr. Abayomi Ajayi said Ali Baba’s involvement was due to his concern at the number of couples who are fertility challenged, adding that this will be an opportunity for poor Nigerian couples to undergo the treatment and enjoy the joy of parenthood like their fertile counterparts. According to Ajayi, “It all started following a visit to Alibaba’s office and for the first time he realised the gravity of the situation faced by infertile couples and affordability of treatment.
