90-Year-old virgin to be immortalised in Akwa Ibom
By Patricia Uyeh
A 90-year-old virgin, identified as Miss Agnes Udofia is set to be immortalised by Ikot Udobia village in the Etinan Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State for living her life caring for the children of other people.
It was reported that over 50 men, women and children gathered around her on Monday, June 5, to give thanks to God for preserving the life of a woman they all thought was their biological mother.
A businessman, Mr. Fabian Udoh, one of those trained by Udofia, revealed that she had never known any man all her life. He added that he was happy to be in the village to honour Udofia.
“She has touched the lives of over 50 children. I have always known her not to have any relationship with any man.
“We are proposing a foundation to immortalise her. We all came home today to celebrate her now that she is alive. It will make no meaning celebrating her after death. She gave most of us life and we must celebrate her when she is alive,” he said.
Speaking on why she was never married, she said, “I was born partially blind and so, no man saw anything good in me. So, I grew up without a man. I have never slept with any man as far as my memory can carry me, not even in my dream.”
According to her, she was created by God to live and die without a husband, child and anything to call her own.
She said, “I live my life the way you see me. No feeling for a man. I don’t see it as abnormal.”
