Nollywood Celebrity Gist: Maureen, the wife of Nollywood Actor Leo Mezie –  has recounted how she almost abandoned her husband when he was sick due to pressure she got from people.

Leo Mezie praises God

“God is still a God of restoration and healing. No situation is too far gone for God to restore.” – Leo Mezie, praising God after surviving kidney failure

You would recall Leo was critically ill and was hospitalized for months due to kidney failure and recently returned back to Nigeria last month after his treatment in London.

She revealed in a recent interview with Vanguard that it was very tough but she never gave up on him despite the frustration and pressure.

These were her words:

“I asked God to give me an assurance that He will keep my husband and sometimes fear and so many feelings that i still can’t explain passed through my mind. The feeling was one of God, You can’t take him now, please show mercy.” – Maureen, Leo Mezie wife

Leo Mezie’s wife continued:

“Sometimes, i was unable to figure out what was really happening. I tried hard to understand the situation and looking for answers that i just couldn’t find or figure out. But the only place i had in mind to take him is God.

Sometimes, i doubted God when the illness became very serious. I started asking myself if God assured me, you know. But each time i prayed, i felt renewed and the stronger i felt this kind of peace that Leonard will just be fine. I never gave up on Leo, even though due to frustration, he became harsh and unfriendly to me most of the time but i knew that wasn’t him, that was frustration.

I must confess to you, some people advised me to abandon him and start a new life since i still have a long way to go. His handsomeness, complexion at this time was gone. He was a shadow of himself. So to them, what was i still doing with him
But to me, that was not an option, neither was it the reason i married to him. I never heeded to their advice. Instead, I decided to fight the battle. My dear, it was tough, very tough” – Maureen Mezie.
