The family of Comrade Eddy Ofuani, Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Branch A in Ika South Local Government Area of Delta state, has been blessed with twin baby girls, Christabel, Kemriochwkwu and Anabel, Chukwuhamuya, after their 19 years of marriage.
Speaking with newsmen, Comrade Eddy Ofuani on behalf of his wife, Mrs. Favour Ofuani expressed gratitude to God for wiping away their tears. In his words, “Bishop David Oyedepo, the General overseer of Living Faith Church (LFC) AKA Winner’s Chapel worldwide who encouraged us during one of the programmes to put our trust in God. Indeed serving a living God pays lot. My wife and I were joined together as husband and wife in the year 2000 and since that time, we have been praying to God for the fruit of the womb. We have gone to various places, like hospitals across the nation and beyond, but to no avail.
A lot of people, particularly friends have mocked at us, saying look at him, at this age, no child to answer his name when he dies. Some even came to tell me all these rubbish to my face excluding the ones they told my wife for which she would come back home will start shedding tears and crying to God. But in all these, we still hoped in God that one day the cry of a new born baby will be heard in our matrimonial home. I made a vow to God in 2006 that I will not visit any hospital again for my solution; rather, I will leave the whole thing to God who is the Alpha and the Omega. It is only about 20 percent of Ika residents apart from my family members that knew that at my age, 1 had not gotten a child of my own because, I am always excited any where I am. I do not feel sad because I am childless.
I thank my wife for her courage and patient in all these challenges, for standing by me. She did not run away from me because she had not conceived. I have never for one day told my wife to pack her things and leave my house because she has not given me a child.
I am encouraging every couple who are yet to have children to put their trust in God because there is nothing God cannot do. Do not be discouraged, because if I was told that my wife will still conceive and bear me children, I will not believe it. (On the 15th February 2019, God blessed us with the twin babies, after so many years of praying and hoping for it,” he said).
In addition, the Agbor-Obi born NURTW chairman appreciated the resident Pastor of LFC, Agbor Headquarters, Pastor Okenwa Nwagwu for his prayers and encouragement. The wife, Mrs. Ofuani who hails form Ejeme-Aniogor in Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta state, thanked God for bringing joy into her family and used the medium to advise other women out there going from one place to the other in the name of child bearing to focus on God and believe that one day, it will come to pass.
