Nath Omame Jnr, husband of the departed Esther Omame, has reacted to the allegations making the rounds that he did not marry his late wife in a proper traditional ways and customs.
Speaking with www.csomedia.com.ng on phone Friday morning, Omame Jnr, also a top flight journalist, said he got married to his wife at the marriage registry in Ojo local government area of Lagos and also performed another marriage ceremony at a Catholic Church in Festac Town, Lagos.
He argued that the court and church marriages had superseded the traditional marriage and customs, saying he has valid certificates and documents to tender anywhere, anytime.
He wondered why his name and that of his son were conspicuously missing in the obituary that was displayed during the wake-keep of his departed wife, held Thursday, July 29, 2021, at his residence in Iyanasshi Graceland in Badagry, Lagos.
Omame Jnr confirmed that he decided to post My Testimony On My Wife’s Marriage To Me, on his whatapp platform for his network to keep abreast on his views on the marriage.
Meanwhile, Dr (Mrs) Grace Achum, Publisher-Editor-In-Chief, BusinessPlus Magazine, where the departed female Editor edited for years, in her submission, pleaded with her colleagues in the journalism profession, as well as other public spirited individuals to come to the aide of the 3-year-old, son of the departed Esther.
Dr Achum however said that Esther was a hardworking, dedicated and committed journalist, who was a thoroughbred journalist, who understands the nitty-gritty of the journalism profession.
