I want a polling unit in my compound — House Leader Ado-Doguwa says as he welcomes 28th child .

Hon Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, the House of Representatives Majority Leader, says he has welcomed his 28th child, a baby girl.

The Kano State lawmaker, who disclosed this at the plenary session in Abuja on Tuesday, January 25, said he’s aiming to have 30 children before the 2023 elections, as he wants a polling unit in his family compound.

According to Tribune, 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 bouncing baby girl.

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 while I had 27 that I would continue counting. By the grace of God and your prayers, the count would continue.

Also, now that we are considering the Electoral Act amendment and 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 to have an electoral polling unit in that family.”

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