woman sacked giving birth triplets

A woman sacked by her employer for giving birth to triplets last year has received cash donation from  Build-a-Nation Initiative, BaNI.

The cash of N100,000 was presented to  Mr & Mrs Ifeanyi Amadi at the head office of Vanguard  in Lagos.

BaNI Founder/Convener  Mr. Emmanuel Ehiemua, said the donation was to assist the family meet up with some of the basic needs of the children. Ehiemua who described Mr and Mrs Amadi as parents who would have loved to fend for their own, regretted that the couple had been denied the dignity of financial independence due to job losses.

According to him;

 “This situation is metaphoric of a nation where millions of people daily lie victim to unfavourable circumstances of unemployed, unplanned births, malnutrition, poor health care delivery and loss of shelter.”  

Here is how Mrs Precious Amadi narrated her ordeal

“When I realised I was pregnant, I was not happy at all because I was not planning to get pregnant. It was the family planning method I was using that failed and I had an unintended pregnancy. But when scans later confirmed that I was carrying triplets, I nearly collapsed from the news. It is hard enough catering for three children not to talk of six. I knew immediately that we were in trouble.”

“I am a trained teacher. I have my National Certificate of Education, NCE, qualification. I have been teaching for over 13 years and I was a teacher in that school for almost eight years. “After I gave birth at the General Hospital at Ajeromi Local Government, Lagos, I was given only four weeks maternity leave by my employer. But it was not enough. I couldn’t resume work after four weeks because it was not an easy period for me at all, particularly because I gave birth through Caesarean Section.”

After the four weeks elapsed, Precious who said she was earning N18, 000 per month, decided to go back to her employer to seek permission for more time with her babies.

“I didn’t expect to get the normal three months, but I needed more time at home until my babies were stronger. To my surprise, when I went back to the school, I was told my services were no longer needed. It was then I discovered I had already been replaced and my salary stopped.”

  1. A man who doesn’t have work is not permitted to have unprotected sex with his wife. I blame ur husband madam

  2. @ Ajarah If God has laid it in your heart to help please help, do not judge. Our conscience is our greatest judge, even they, they are not happy. This is God blessing coming into where its not needed in spite of its preciousness. Do we blame God? no, He does His things and He remain unquestionable God. Its terrible to have family you cannot cater for financially. May God not let the source of our finance dry in Jesus name.

  3. Some employers sha. Same thing happened to me when i had my first baby. Madam, your triplets are blessed in Jesus name.

  4. What sin has she comitted by having triplets? Should women avoid having children because they want to keep a job? A lot of employers are just mean and this matter should be seriously addressed in state house of assemblies. The injustices against women in this area is turning to something else
