Against the usual and normal events of seeing young lovers join together in holy matrimony, it was indeed a miracle when a sexagenarian, Augustina Nwatoka got married for the very first time on January 25th at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Enugukwu, Anambra State, Nigeria
A lady, Nneka Isaac Moses made a post on Facebook on January 26th where she said she and Isaac (presumably her husband) were delighted to witness the most “the most beautiful wedding of this century!”
She wrote further, “Aunt Nwatoka had never been married all her life. She’s Isaac’s aunt from his father’s side and one of the best aunt in-law you can wish for. She took excellent care of my husband’s grandma until she passed in her 90’s.
“She was always there for the whole family each time we went home for Christmas or … I was personally surprised but pleasantly so when a handsome Enugukwu man Mr. Okeke decided to take her hand in marriage.
“Aunt Nwatoka as she’s fondly called was literarily swept off her feet. And just yesterday (January 25) he wedded her at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Enugukwu, Anambra State. Mr Okeke is a Lagos businessman while his new bride works in Anambra. Having found happiness, the groom who lost his first wife many years ago is giving himself another chance
“And who would have thought that our dear Aunt Augustina Nwatoka at her age will ever be married! God is awesome. God is merciful. He never gives up on His children so, be positive as this year will not pass you by”
