The Oligbo Kingdom, Issele-Uku in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State was thrown into a festive mood yesterday as Crown Prince Engr. Nduka Ezeagwuna married his beautiful wife and incoming Queen Mother, former Miss Chukwudumebi Rosemary Ejiogwu from Ogboli Quarters of Issele-Uku.
Expectedly, the town of Issele-Uku was agog with beats and sounds to herald the royal marriage, which later turned into a carnival of sort after the blessing of marriage by the bride’s father, Rev. Sammy Sunday Ejiogwu, and the cutting of cake by the royal couple.
Earlier, before proceeding from the Oligbo Royal Palace to take his wife from Ogboli people, the Regent of Oligbo Kingdom, Prince Dominic Egbune, had blessed the marriage between HRM Engr. Nduka Ezeagwuna and Miss Chukwudumebi Rosemary Ejiogwu, praying that their union would produce peace, unity and development in Issele-Uku.
Meanwhile, as a mark of supreme respect to God, the Crown Prince on Sunday 28th August, took his wife to Issele Baptist Church, Issele-Uku, for thanksgiving. It was another joyous moment as the entire town joined the royal family to appreciate God for his blessings upon the community, thereby committing the affairs of the town under the incoming king into God’s hands.
The Priest who preached the sermon, Rev. J. O. Mokogwu advised the Crown Prince to rule his kingdom with the fear of God, adding that like King Solomon who succeeded enormously in ruling Israel, he should seek for understanding and wisdom to rule from God alone.
Briefing newsmen after the event, the trio of former Executive Chairman of Aniocha North Local Government, Hon. Chief Jaunty Okwudi, the National President of Issele-Uku Development Union (IDU), Barr. C. M. Ashibuogwu and the National President of Issele-Uku Progressive Youth Association (IPYA), Mr. Onyeisi Mokogwu respectively affirmed that this is the beginning of a new dawn in Issele-Uku.
They encouraged the royalty to be fair but firm as they soon take up the mantle of rulership of Oligbo kingdom, wishing them the best in their newfound love.
However, the mother of the Crown Prince, Queen Faith Ezeagwuna, who was overwhelmed, said she was exceptionally happy to see her son take a wife of his youth who will show him love as well as bring peace to their kingdom.
She stated that God had given her joy in place of sorrow, affirming that she would take care of her daughter in-law as her own child. The Nation
