Former Governor of Anambra State’s wife denies divorce rumour trailing her 25-year old marriage
By Rita Chioma
The beautiful wife of former Governor of Anambra State has debunked rumours of an impending divorce with her husband.
Margaret said she had been receiving text messages from concerned Nigerians about supposed divorce proceedings she instituted against her husband.
She said: “I received a lot of messages as I turned on my phone after I came out of Church on Monday. I had worshiped at Our Lady of Assumption, Ikoyi with my husband.”
“Why should I think along that line when I have no problem with my husband? I am happily married and have no reason to contemplate divorce,” she said.
Mrs. Obi, who said she had been happily married to her husband for over 25 years, said that nothing associated with divorce had ever crossed her mind.
On those behind the news, Margaret prayed for God to forgive them, and appealed to journalists to verify sensitive news before going to press.
“The family is the basic cell in the society; once it is threatened, the entire society is affected,” she said while stressing the importance of marriages.
