Imo West Senator, Hope Uzodimma, has stated that he won’t reconcile with his former wife, Augusta, because their marriage had been legally dissolved by the Court and the Catholic Church about 17 years ago.

He said a Lagos High Court in Ikeja presided over by Justice Bayo Manuwa and the Catholic Canon Tribunal of Orlu Diocese Catholic Church in Imo State where the marriage was initially consummated have dissolved the marriage after irreconcilable issues in 1998.

Uzodimma in a statement in Abuja said the dissolution by the Catholic Church has been granted by the Catholic Papal’s Dispensation.

The Senator was reacting to the purported alarm raised by Augusta in which she called on the Catholic Church and all concerned not to recognize the his planned second marriage.

He wondered why the former wife would suddenly wake up from her slumber after 17 years to raise unnecessary alarm.

According to him, the dissolution of the marriage having broken down irretrievably followed all due processes (legal and Canon laws) “as we have a judgment Absolute from the High Court and also a Judgement Absolute from the Catholic Tribunal.”

He said because of the love for his children, he would not go into the details of what led to the dissolution and that as a responsible man, “I have not abandoned Augusta whom I have continued to meet her needs, being the mother of my children.”

Uzodimma accused his political detractors who having failed at all fronts to drag his name to the mud, have now resorted to conscript Augusta to champion their cause. “I see the handiwork of my political detractors in this,” he added.

The Senator called for calm and urged his friends and teeming supporters to disregard the action of Augusta as she is manipulated by political detractors.
