Recall that pretty  Inebharapu Paul, walked down the aisle with her heartthrob, Simeon Onyemeachi on January 10, 2015 in Abuja. The ceremony was a grand one with affluent and prominent guests to grace the occasion, including the former president Obasanjo, senators and ministers. And now, the blessings of children showered on them during the marriage ceremony has come into fulfillment.

It must be a time of great joy and celebrations for the elated grandfather, Jonathan, who besides being the International Person Of The Year By The African Sun Times, was also yesterday, honored by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in Altanta, Georgia. His new grandchild has only added to his many blessings.

His first grandchild came on September 23, when his daughter, Faith Sakwe and her husband, Godswill Edward also welcomed their first child. The baby girl was born in the USA and was christened Princess Eliana Godswill Edward.

On December 20, 2015 the former president joined his daughter and family to dedicate his granddaughter to God at the Word Illumination Ministry in Gwarimpa, Abuja. While addressing the congregation at the service, Jonathan called on Nigerians to pray and work for the good of the country, stressing that God would see the nation through its period of hardship.
