Speaking about why she did not remarry after the demise of her husband during a chat on Mercy Johnson’s kitchen show, Mercy’s menu, Patience Ozokwor disclosed that her children pleaded with her not to remarry.
According to her, her children were all grown-ups and assured to be there for her and cater for her. She added that her children said their friends might mock them if she does, hence her decision to stay single after her husband’s death.
“I wanted to remarry but my kids had already come of age and they pleaded with me not to marry another man and they promised they will be my husband. They asked me to stay single for them so their friends will not laugh at them that at their age their mum remarried and I understood them, though it was selfish of them I paid a huge sacrifice for them, no sacrifice is too huge for the family.”
