Dr. Uzo Iweala, son of Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance and now Director-General of the World Trade Organization, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, tied the knot with his heartthrob, Lotte Elsa, in Germany on Sunday.
Photos from the ceremony were shared by the groom’s aunt, Njide Okonjo-Iweala, who penned a short note to the couple, writing, “As Nigerians and Ndigbo, there is no marriage unless we as a community celebrate our traditional marriage rites, Igba Nkwu Nwanyi. So, in Heidelberg, Germany, we married our wife.
“It takes a village, and Uzo and Lotte had their village there to honor and celebrate them. Another day of celebrating love, honoring traditions, and celebrating community
“To our newest couple, Uzodinma Iweala and Lotte Elsa. May you continue to find true happiness in each other. I love you both.”
