Elechi Oko Elechi, in a well-attended and elaborate ceremony that took place at Chapel of Mercy, a Christian denomination, founded by the brides’ mother, Evang. (Mrs.) Henrietta Chukwuemeka Eze.
The traditional marriage and wedding ceremonies were held in the lively town of Uburu in Ohaozara, a flourishing suburb in eastern Nigeria, peculiar for its serenity and natural environment.
Aside from its natural features Uburu town is unique for being home to notable individuals in society who have made their marks in the corporate world, academia, and even politics. The town prides itself on having produced at a time Dr. Ogbonna Onu, erstwhile Minister of Science and Technology; Dr. Dave Nweze Umahi, Nigeria’s most innovative Governor, Whose impact on the politics of the country cannot be overemphasized. Others are Chief Austin Umahi, former National Vice Chairman of PDP, South East Zone, and AIG Dr. Grace Chita Okudo. All these great Leaders from UBURU had their offices almost at the same time becoming the only town in Nigeria to be so blessed
It was this town that played host to the wedding ceremony of Lady Chidinma Ada Eze, daughter of Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, a revered media practitioner and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP).
The wedding which attracted the creme de la creme of society saw friends, associates and well-wishers of Chief Eze in attendance including high ranking members of society, political, Religious leaders and men of the business world. The Governor of Ebonyi State and Senator-elect, Dr. Dave Nweze UMAHI who graciously approved the use of his hotel, OSBORN LA PALM ROYAL RESORT LTD. for reception acted as Chief Host and was represented by his workaholic PS, Chief Emma Obasi.

Expressing positive shock over the level of love showed him by former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar in the course of the wedding, Eze said the PDP presidential candidate is indeed a unifier by words and action. He described Amaechi, former Rivers Governor as a true brother and leader who has proved beyond any doubt that his love for himself and family is certain.
Eze thanked Boni Haruna, erstwhile Governor of Adamawa for engaging him to reflect the memories he shared with him while at Adamawa.
To his wife, Evang. Ada Henrietta Chioma Eze and the entire family of P. N. Nwaorgu and Ezenwannne, Eze is grateful to God for bringing them together.
