The former lawmaker of the second republic revealed that he was now a king in Ogoniland, Rivers State. He added that he had been alone since his late wife died in 1991 and could no longer bear the loneliness.

He also mentioned that all his children are now adults and are all busy with their lives.

Sen. Cyrus Nunieh spoke with Punch on the telephone on Tuesday, the 17th of October 2017. He described his new wife, Rosemary, as an intelligent woman, that will always be there for him.

He said: “I cannot continue to stay alone. I love her and she loves me. We understand each other and she is also intelligent. In marriage, there are advantages somewhere and disadvantages in other areas.

“There is no limitation in age. Some may say you are old; you may soon die. But some were dead even before they were born. Some were one year or two years old and they die. Death is not always dependent upon a man’s age.

“You know that rose is the best of all flowers and we have two Marys in the Bible; we have Mary, the mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

“She too (Rosemary) is a believer of the Bible. But why are you particular about her age? She is not an infant. She is a very charming woman.”
