Actress and filmmaker, Omoni Oboli has recounted how she felt when her father died in 2017.
Speaking in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Oboli said: “My world crumbled when my dad passed. The next day I drove into Benin. I went to see him at the Morgue. Have you ever seen a dead body? You just know that they are no more there. It’s a shell. We all like to look good, at the end of the day this body is a shell. I saw my dad, I saw my mom and you just know the person you know and love is gone.They call my dad mobility that’s like his nick name .I said ‘Mobility how could you do this to me’? I just kept thinking what am I going to do? How am I ever going to get back from this?”
Oboli also urged people to be willing to forgive irrespective of what is being done.
There is almost nothing that someone will do that you won’t forgive if you want to. If you decide you don’t want to forgive, that’s different. But if you want to forgive, there is nothing that someone will do to you that you won’t forgive. We all have to realize first of all that we are all sinners. We are all completely flawed. Nobody is perfect so don’t look for perfection in the next person because you are not even perfect yourself .So we decided very earlier on in the marriage, actually before, that divorce is not an option. So no matter what happens, we are in this forever”.
