Cross River Deputy Governor, Professor Ivara Esu and the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Eteng Jones (PDP Yakurr) were among high profile attendees as the immediate past acting Chief Judge, Justice Maurice Eneji remarried on Saturday.

This is despite the fact the judiciary has gone 18 days without a Chief Judge now.

His first marriage to Mrs. Rose Eneji ended 20 months ago when she passed away.

And, following the decision of the State Assembly not to confirm Justice Akon Ikpeme who was recommended by the National Judicial Council, Justice Eneji was sworn-in in acting capacity for two acting tenures of three months.

His second acting tenure elapsed on September 2, 2020 and since then, there has been no leadership in the judiciary.

But, none of these was mentioned by the representatives of the other arms of government when they attended his remarriage on Saturday at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Jesus Sanctuary, Calabar as well as the reception at Channel’s View Hotel, Calabar.

Born, bred and initially a Catholic, Justice Eneji switched to the church of his new bride whom he said carries grace.

“To be honest with you, I assured myself never to remarry but, the lord who created every human was in bid to heal the injury in my heart after the passing away of my beloved princess, Rose. That is why today God has sent his daughter to heal my heart and to fill the vacuum,” Justice Eneji told journalists in an interview.

“My wife, Muobo, is a rare woman and a very God fearing spouse; because of her virtues she won my admiration, “She carries grace,” he added.

He posited that the wedding ceremony is a word of honour to God’s aptitude and lauded Governor Ben Ayade, his wife, members of the House of Assembly, judicial staff and the Nigerian Bar Association for their support.
