Governor Okezie Ikpeazu says that his wife, Nkechi is the strongest human pillar in his life.
In a message on her birthday today, the Governor stated clearly that the modest strides he has achieved in life would have been impossible without the prayers of his wife.
“Nkechi is God’s gift to me. I have said it over and over again that she is the only woman that can marry me. She perfectly understands me, my philosophies and she seamlessly aligns with them, making me stronger and more able to cope with the challenges that confront me daily.
Her prayers and constant intercessions remain my biggest sources of strength. When she goes on her knees, walls are broken in my life and doors are opened”.
“In the last 28 years of our marriage, she has proven to be what the Late Obafemi Awolowo described as MY JEWEL OF INESTIMABLE VALUE, providing prayerful support for my life, raising our children well and making our home a fortress of love and an epicenter of peace. In the last five years of our service as Governor, Nkechi has grown in stature, rising courageously and effectively responding to the huge demands of our respective schedules. Yet, despite the seeming trappings of the office of the Wife of the Governor, Nkechi has continued to see herself as my wife and mother to our children”.
The Governor wishes his wife a very happy birthday today and thanks her publicly for the wholehearted love, affection and support she has given to him in the nearly three decades of their marriage and for being a most worthy companion in his life’s journey.
