There is no glory without a story behind it. Patrick Ifeanyi Uba, CEO capital oil, billionaire business man and philanthropist is an inspiration to younger generation on how there are no limits of possibility only when you believe.

Ifeanyi Uba who rose from a humble background to becoming one of the people that influences the elements that determines Nigeria’s economy. A politician and former Anambra state Gubernatorial candidate. In as much he’s a business man, he’s also a husband and father of 5. So he also has a romantic side.

I was going through my archives on the internet and i came accross this beautiful letter Patrick Ifeanyi Uba wrote to his wife, Uchenna Uba. He eulogized her. Read what he wrote about her and the throwback photo of them on their wedding day.

Uchenna Uba

“I can remember vividly the first time I set my eyes on her. I was 22 and she was 20. It was not difficult to see her invaluable worth. Within a short space of time and with much excitement, I had concluded she was going to be my wife. At the age of 22, she became my wife after paying her bride price. The blessings she brought into my life started to manifest in no time as I moved into a 2-storey building I built under 2months and 3weeks at the age of 22. To the glory of God, we eventually wedded in 1997 at Muson centre, Lagos. I was 26 years at the time and she was 24 years. All these were rare feats!

From then onwards, the good tidings of love has been evident in our lives. She has been a rock, my solid rock. Her entrance into my life opened doors, shattered barriers, leveled mountains and made me soar. This treasure stood by me through thick and thin, even at my lowest ebb. You see, the bible never lies. As the word of the Lord says "he who finds a wife, findeth a good thing"...In my case, I FOUND THE BEST THING! I would and could never ask God for more. Taking a stroll down memory lane and life as we started it, the struggles, the bliss, the highs and the lows, all the beautiful moments we have shared, there is no doubt that she has been an immense blessing to me”

Here are some throwback photos of them on their wedding day.

"I built his first house under 2months and 3weeks at the age of 22." This words are still ringing in my ears.

He built his first house under 2months and 3weeks at the age of 22. For some of us at that age we are still in the university, some are still in hustle mood.
