Jude Ojegwu, the father of Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels, and Ned Nwoko, billionaire businessman and former member of the House of Representatives, reconciled on Friday.
The duo reconciled at the naming of Munir, the actress’ newborn, in Abuja.
Ojegwu, who made a surprise appearance at the event, had opposed the marriage between his daughter and Nwoko because of age differences.
But the actress’ father, who is a lawyer, said he has accepted the marriage as the wish of God.
“The birth of this child has answered the question (about the controversy); everybody craves for peace, joy and happiness. I have accepted everything.
“I feel very happy having a grandchild and that is why I am here. I travelled all the way from Lagos to this place just to celebrate with the family. I told him (Nwoko) and the mother to call him Ifechukwude which means what God has written,” Ojegwu told journalists.
Speaking at the event, Nwoko said he had yet to reach his target on the number of children he wanted.
He stated that he would father more children, adding that he married Daniels because she is peaceful, loving, disciplined and homely.
He said: “My little boy is bearing my middle name, Munir. It means light. It is an Islamic name and I am a Muslim. I am still very young, I have my target when it comes to child-bearing and I have not reached my target yet. God speaks through man. So when the time comes, you will know.
“Regina is a lovely woman, patient, easy-going, homely, disciplined and peaceful”
