Olufolake Abdulrazaq, the wife of Kwara State Governor, has offered to help the blue-eyed Kwara mom who was abandoned by her husband after she gave birth to blue-eyed kids.
The PUNCH, in an exclusive video, had reported that Azeez, who said she sees clearly with her eyes despite the colour, lamented that her husband, who married her that way, changed when she gave birth to two kids with the same set of eyeballs.
The mother of two, who spoke in Yoruba Language, said, “I was born with these eyes and I also gave birth to my children with same pair of eyes. Since I was born, I have never had any challenge with my eyes. I have never been to the hospital due to any discomfort. I thank God.
Her sister, Balikis Azeez, whose eyes’ colour is black, said, “When my sister was born, people thought she had eye problems but upon medical examination, the opticians said there was no problem with her eyes; they said she has foreign eyes.”
The blue-eyed mom added, “As a young girl, I was later taken to the hospital for medical examination and came back home with lots of gifts because the doctors liked my eyes. They also said there was nothing wrong with it.”
She further stated, “My husband whose name is Abdul Wasiu Omo-Dada is very aware of the condition of my eyes and he loved me for who I am. Things started getting bad when I had my first child and later my second child. He totally changed and he would shut me up and walk out on me whenever I tried to start a conversation with him.

She added that she would also work to possibly reunite the woman with her husband.
