ADVOCACY: (Video) “I Suffered from Reactive Depression” Says Estranged Wife of Governor Chime

This is one story I have also been following closely for a while and sharing on some of my social media platform pages. It was so crazy to read and know what to believe which facts were actually true, especially given the dimension of the mental health issue present here. It is good to see that Mrs. Clara Chime is out of her ordeal. I hope she gets much needed counseling and treatment to get herself back on track.

Two things I note: a) Her statement that she was suffering from reactive depression and b) the legal requirement that a woman be separated from her husband for two years before filing for divorce. Why so long? Any Nigerian family lawyersout of Nigeria to explain the current state of the law in that regards?



The estranged wife of Enugu Governor, Mrs Clara Chime told Channels Television’s legal correspondent, Shola Shoyele in an exlusive interview that she intends to seek divorce from her husband.
