She then proceeded to University of Port Harcourt and studied for a B.Ed in Biology and Psychology.
Their courtship lasted for about 20 years and they only got married legally when he became the deputy governor ..
In their biography, their first meeting was love at first sight..She said...
”We first met at the Rivers State College of Education, Port Harcourt where I was a student. He was my Biology lecturer. Later; he left for university of Port Harcourt to pursue his PhD.
We met again at the University of Port Harcourt when I went for undergraduate degree. That was where our relationship began. He took interest in me because I was a brilliant and smart student.
It was love at first sight on his part. But it never crossed my mind that it would lead to a serious relationship. My first impression of him was ‘this tall, dark, handsome young man”.
Further interaction with him also revealed that he came from a good Christian home just like I did. His humble and gentle disposition caught my attention and most importantly, his intelligence.”
