Top Physician, Innocent Ekwem, Fetes All At Daughter’s Wedding


As a  father,  when you labour so hard to train your child and she turns out to be a pride to the family,  you feel a sense of fulfilment and happiness.
On Saturday,  April 14, 2018, everyone who saw  Dr. Innocent Chi Ekwem,  the Founder and Chief Medical Director of Ebony Hospitals Limited, Rumuola, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, agreed that his heart was filled with joy, as he attended to family, friends and all who graced the wedding of his London-based beautiful daughter,  Dr. Yvonne Ezinne Ekwem, to her beau, Trevor Okechukwu Okonya, who is also based in London.
The memorable event kicked off soon after the couple made their way separately to the historic Mater Misericordiae Catholic Church, Rumuomasi, Port Harcourt , where they exchanged vows before hundreds of privileged guests.
The union was officiated by His Grace, Archbishop Dr. Anthony Obinna of Owerri Ecclesiastical Province; His Lordship Most Rev. Dr Augustine Ukwuoma of Orlu Diocese; Most Rev Dr. Gregory Ochiagha; and Rev. Fr. Professor Paully Odozor of University of Notra Dame in South Bend Indiana, United States, who represented His Eminence, Cardinal John Onaiyekan.
The holy solemnisation was followed by a lavish reception chaired by Sir Reginald Ihejiani  a former Managing Director,  Fidelity Bank Plc,   at the exquisite Aztec Arcum on Stadium Road, Port Harcourt, River State.
Interestingly,  both Dr. Chi Ekwem and his amiable wife, Linda, a gynaecologist and obstetrician,   had earlier hosted the who-is-who in Imo and Rivers states, when the couple had their traditional wedding on April 7 at Amucha in Orlu, Imo State.
The bride is a clinical fellow (S.H.O.) obstetrics and gynaecology with Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust.
