Nigerian businessman and politician, Eghosa Agbonifo, has left many social media users inspired and filled with admiration after he took to the platform to share his grass to grace story with his wife as the main motivation.
Agbonifo who recently surprised his wife with a trip to Santorini in Greece, to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, recounted how they got married when he had nothing and she was ridiculed for choosing him.
According to his post, with the help of some of his friends, he was able to get married to her in a registry. However, due to the fact that she was heavily pregnant, his wife didn't exactly like the photos and this pushed him to become successful in order to make her dreams a reality.
He wrote: "She was ridiculed for accepting to be my wife 10 years ago. They said “that boy wey dey sell okrika clothes na you carry belle for?“. Not to disappoint her, I gathered little money, rushed down to Oredo Local Government registry to quickly do the registry and legalized our marriage. With the support of my friend Prince Harrison Ayonote (he gave me his car for free and also gave me the suit I wore ) and Azeta Omoaghe ensured all logistics was put in place.
Now let's cut the long story short, my wife said the picture then wasn’t too interesting because she was almost 8 months gone. I told her never to worry, that as time progresses I will replicate the registry but in another level (Upgrade). This year June 13th , I decided to surprise her during our 10th anniversary to celebrate her in one of the world's best islands (Santorini island in Greece). Had to share this for the love of throwback and whatever you are going through today, it is not permanent just keep pushing. #tbt #love."
Love is indeed a beautiful thing and being blessed with the opportunity to spend forever after with the love of your life is something many people pray and hope for.
Celebrating 19 years of marriage is Nollywood celeb, Omoni Oboli and her husband, Nnamdi Oboli. Her husband recently took to Instagram to shower her with praises and also thanked her for the many years of joy and love they have both shared.
