I am Mazi Ogbonnna from Ovim, Isuikwuator, Abia State Nigeria. Nnenna Ogbonna (nee Okorie), from Ahaba, Imenyi, Isukwuator and I have been married for 32 years. God blessed us with three awesome sons, Mazi, Ikechukwu, Uchechi and two adorable grandsons, Ezekiel and Dominick Ogbonna.
Nnenna Ogbonna obtained her A levels and BS degree in Pharmacology in London, England. Upon hearing about her great academic and moral attributes from a close confidant, her first cousin Chief Kismet Okorie Onyeforo, I stormed “Queen’s Country” with my BEST behavior bagged from Methodist College, Uzuakoli. After, uphill climbs, I succeed to convince her to complete my life’s circuitry. Thus her transplant from England to the US. Here, she tripled as a wife, a mother and a student to earn a Pharmacy degree. She currently works as a Registered Pharmacist at Bellevue hospital, Manhattan, NY.
Unequivocally , since Nnenna became part of me, my life’s sinusoidal waves have transformed into ‘Siriri werere”. Honestly, our marriage has been fueled by Nnenna’s daily tonic and portion of love, kindness, wisdom, compassion and support to transform me from “Saul to Paul”. I count myself lucky to have a “Moral, Social and Economic” GPS like Nnenna Ogbonna as a wife.
Nnenna Ogbonna is very tenacious. But underneath that tenacity, is an overflow of kindness, compassion and love for her immediate family , relatives and friends. She’s God fearing and navigates hurdles to serve God for humanity sake. Her colleagues from Presbyterian Church, Queens; Obinwanne Prayer Group and Sisters Fellowship International (SFI) can attest to her steadfast commitment for excellence, peace and unity.
Ndigbo, friends and well wishers, please help me thank this wonderful wife of mine for all she has been doing for my entire family both home and abroad.
Today’s event is a better party for my family considering what could have happened a year ago. My entire family once more thanks you all immensely for coming. We extend our special thanks to all those that contributed in cash and kind towards the success of this occasion. We wish you many happy days and important milestones ahead.
