Nollywood actress Uchenna Nnanna has declared her stand with her colleague’s first wife, May Edochie after she insisted that she would not be cajoled into polygamy by her husband, Yul Edochie.
Nnanna, a proud mother of two via her verified Instagram page on Saturday, December 24 further asserted that polygamy is the worst thing to wish even an enemy.
She added that she is from a polygamous home and knows better.
“Coming from a polygamous home, polygamy is the last thing you can even wish your worst enemy. The second wife and the children will always feel they are at war with the first wife and the children, no matter how they try to maintain peace. I stand and re-stand with May Edochie,” she wrote.
This comes after May Edochie replied her husband’s public apology letter warning him to desist from the show on social media.
She wrote: “I strongly believe that mistakes are a major part of human existence. It is our response to these errors that count. In other words, forgiveness is one thing, and righting a wrong is another.
FORGIVENESS is the highest | most beautiful form of love for me. There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love. Hence, my ability to forgive the mistakes of the past, present, and future with respect to the issue on ground is in the interest of my mental health and inner peace.
I decided to stick to love…Hate is too great a burden to bear. I am still very much incapable of HATING anyone, let alone the father of my children. The fact remains that anyone can choose to practice POLYGAMY, but can’t be impelled to accept what was never bargained for.
To reaffirm my stands, I will not be CAJOLED into accepting polygamy, which goes against my beliefs, faith, and values.
I will not be NUMBERED in a home that we started building with love, faith, tears, hopes, and prayers in a CATHOLIC marriage of 18 years following a long term premarital relationship.
This is also a passionate appeal to put an END to the constant “show” on the social media space where our kids are growing into unless it is absolutely necessary. Let’s prevent our lovely children from all the incessant drama series that might take a toll on them directly or indirectly amongst their peers.
May GOD in His infinite mercy and compassion guide us all in the right direction.
Merry Christmas in advance everyone!”
Shortly after he announced his second marriage, May had also openly stated that her belief and faith did not permit polygamy.
Prior to his public apology, Yul had at several times boasted about his polygamous marriage, adding that the decision had brought him blessings.
