‘I pray God gives them children they can train’
– MR. FRANK GBONEME, Groom’s father
CHUKIE’s dad is a jolly good fellow. A retired Customs officer, the free-spirited man of means and wisdom was so, so free with us. While blessing his first son and daughter-in-law, he confessed he’s proud of them.
I know God has already answered all the prayers my friends and family have been saying on their behalf. They started well and ended well. To God be the glory, we have reached this point. And my prayer for them is that they are going to grow from strength to strength. They are going to enjoy their marriage. The number of children they want, God will give to them. I pray God gives them the children they can train and give them the wherewithal to train the children and live to old age in good health.
Can you please tell us about your son?
Chukie is a wonderful guy. He grew up like any other boy. I guess if my mother were still alive, she would say he is like my son.
I thank God for his wife, Uchenna is a wonderful girl from a wonderful family. I know by God’s grace Chukie will take care of her and God will take care of both of them.
How many other children do you have?
I have five children. Chukwueku is my first son. There is Ijeamaka, Ikechukwu…I worked with Nigeria Customs. I have retired. I’m now in business.
How old is your son?
‘God will keep them together’
– MRS. CYNTHIA GBONEME, Groom’s mother
APPROACHED severally for comments, the mother of the groom, Mrs. Cynthia Gboneme didn’t oblige us. It took the intervention of an acquaintance for the delectable socialite to give us her ears. And when she did briefly, she rained blessings on the newly-wed.
We thank God today that our children are married. It’s the Lord’s doing and marvellous in our sight. And God will continue to bless them. May God continue to guide all of them in Jesus name.
I advise they continue to love each other. And when they do this, God will always be with them and keep them together. A third party should not come in-between them.
