Nollywood actress cum preacher Eucharia Anunobi has gone down memory lane, recalling how her father allegedly called her “useless” and denied her a university education because she was a female child.
The 56-year-old made the revelation on her Instagram page on Tuesday.
Sharing the post, the veteran actress wrote, “I am still in awe of God. He changes destinies in a twinkling of an eye. He is the rule breaker ‼ He doesn’t need anyone’s permission to bless someone ‼ Just look at the girl, whose rich father refused to train after high school, that he had no need for a girl child. That the female gender is useless to him and can’t carry his name anywhere.
“That he rather concentrate and train the male children to any level of education that they desire. And this girl child struggled all by herself and is a model, a former beauty Queen, a famous superstar actress, a preacher.
“AND NOW THAT GIRL CHILD IS A PH.D HOLDER IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND MINISTERIAL ARTS. AND SHE HAS ENGRAVED HER FATHER’S NAME ON THE MAP OF THE WORLD AND STILL CARVING IT AND WILL KEEP CARVING IT UNTIL THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST ‼ I AM THAT GIRL CHILD AND MY NAME IS APOSTLE DR EUCHARIA AKUWA ANUNOBI ‼Celebrate God on my behalf.”
Eucharia currently serves as an evangelist at a church in the Egbeda area of Lagos State.
She lost her only son, Raymond, whom she described as her best friend to complications arising from sickle cell anaemia on August 22, 2017. He was aged 15.
