“We’re not against our father’s new marriage’ Iwuanyanwu’s kids say
One of the daughters of billionaire businessman Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu has rubbished reports making the rounds that they are against their father’s marriage to the 26 year old daughter of one his late wife’s close friends. I was reliably informed that they kicked against it initially but backed down after their father threatened to deal with anyone who gave him headache over his intentions to marry a much younger woman – but the children say it’s not true, so let’s believe them.
His daughter, Mrs Nwadiuto Iheakanwa, the MD of Champion newspaper told Encomium magazine:
“We are not against our father’s new marriage. It’s not true that we the children kicked against it. He made his choice and we wish him well in his new marriage. Papa is an old man (don’t let his new wife hear that o..lol) we should not give him stress. We want our father to have a long life and enjoy himself. The lady herself consented to it. We spoke to her and she said she loves papa. We wish them goodluck.”
Chief Iwuanyanwu and his late wife, Lady Eudora, who died in August 2011, were married for 40 years and had eight children, most of whom are older than the woman he married this past weekend.
