he said: “If you have got used to having a wife when you get married and you discover that you cannot do any other thing without your wife, then you can imagine what not having her for almost three days will be like.” In his appreciation,
“I’m happy because it is when things like this happen that you know whether you are well loved or not. I am happy that my wife is back. She is not hurt. She is not ill. But I said she should get a rest because of the trauma, in order to get over it. She should have been the one talking to you but we are grateful to Nigerians.”
