Achieving a great feat such as building one’s first home is often considered a good thing, for Peace Onuoha, it is a mix of bitter-sweet emotions having recently lost her father, Igbere TV reports.
The Nollywood actress recently took to social media to share a photo of her new home which she revealed was completed before her father passed away.
Onuoha in an emotional post recounted conversations about her career path with her father. The graduate of banking and finance revealed she had promised to build him a house but he died shortly after she began the project.
In the post, the actress dedicated the new home to her late father.
In her words:
“Hello Dad, U once called me and asked me what I do for a living and I told U I am an actress, another day you called me and asked if that is better than looking for a job as a graduate of banking and finance and I replied what matters is the grace of God not the nature of my job.
“I told U that I will build U a home, I laid the foundation and started it in ur presence but God took U away before I could finish it
“Dad, I have so much tears in my eyes every moment I reflect ur beautiful memories, but it’s unfortunate U are coming home unconscious and asleep in the abode of the lord. Dad, I did it for U and I know u can see It. This house is to ur loving memories.
“I love U dad and I pray u rest well in the lord. To U my dearest mum, I love U and I ask U to take heart for God will not forsake you. Thank U lord for the Grace, I’m grateful O’lord.
