(By Chioma Peter) – Elder statesman, Senator Cyrus Nunieh says that he was compelled to remarry, 26 years after the demise of his former wife in 1991 because he was alone and needed a companion.
Speaking with The Punch, the Ogoni born lawyer and distinguished politician said his children, who are now adults were in support of his official remarriage to Rosemary on Tuesday in Port Harcourt.
His words: “I cannot continue to stay alone. I love her and she loves me. We understand each other and she is also intelligent. In marriage, there are advantages somewhere and disadvantages in other areas.
“There is no limitation in age. Some may say you are old; you may soon die. But some were dead even before they were born. Some were one year or two years old and they die. Death is not always dependent upon a man’s age,” he said.
Describing his wife, said to be in her 40’s as the best, and a believer in the Bible, Senator Nunieh added that Rosemary is a very charming woman.
