Meet 90 year old woman in Akwa Ibom who never had any intimacy with man. Ukridosblog, learnt that Miss Agnes Akpan, though childless, has single-handedly raised over 50 children in Etinan Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
Based on her contribution towards humanity, Miss Agnes Akpan was recently honoured by her people in Ikot Udobia community of Etinan local government area.
In an interview with NDV, Miss Agnes said;
“I have never known anything like man in my entire life, not to talk of a husband. I have never been married, no relationship with any man, no boyfriend even when I was young. I have never slept with any man as far as my memory can carry me, not even in my dream state.
Miss Agnes went ahead to give reason why she has never had any intimacy with a man. According to her, she said;
“I was born partially blind, no man saw anything good in me, so I grew up without the feeling of a man. When I was much younger, reverend sisters staying at the Convent School at Ikot Udo Ntuen made me to embrace Christianity. Every Sunday, they came to our house to pick me and brought me back in the evening. Those were the kind of friends that I had.
“No immoral discussion, it was all about Holy Mary and the child of God, Jesus.”
When asked if she has any regret of not being with a man, the 90 year old woman said;
“No, no regret. In the first place, I do not know what to regret about, my belief is that I was created by God to live and die without a husband, child and anything I can call my own. I see things in and around me as normal. I never hated men neither did the men hate me, but we never met.
“I lived my life the way you see me. No feeling for a man. I do not see it as either normal or abnormal. Maybe I will get better answers from God when I eventually transit to meet my Creator. But I know I was created by God not to get a man in my life in the name of husband or children.
“I do not know the meaning of men frustration and broken home. I do not have any of painful past.
“I enjoy taking care of little children between the age 4 to 10 years. Mothers who have children will drop them with me when they are going to farm, market or to fetch water. I will take care of them until they return to take their children. I feed them and keep them happy as long as they stay with me.’’
