A Nigerian man identified as Tony Abayomi Alder with First Bank Nigeria who waited for 23 years to become a father has died just 7 months after his wife gave birth to a set of twin boys.

The sad news was shared yesterday by Ibukun Awosika who serves as the Chairman of First Bank Nigeria on Instagram.

Mourning the deceased, Mrs Awosika wrote:

“Tony Abayomi Alder. Who went to be with the Lord today 23/2/2020.

“A most faithful, most diligent, most dedicated, most trustworthy and loyal member of my team at Christian Missionary Fund for the past 25 years. You became my brother and my friend as we sought to build an institution to serve the Lord through the support of the missionaries across the length and breadth of Nigeria. That you will be missed is an understatement.

“I am grateful to God that, after waiting for 23 years, you witnessed the birth and enjoyed being a father to your twin boys, if only for 7 months. We truly love you but humbly submit to the will of God. May you forever be remembered for your cheerful service to the God you loved so much, your faithfulness as a husband to Toyin and your love of all around you”.
