How do you feel?

I feel great. I am so happy. Words can’t express how I feel. I am getting married to the love of my life, my best friend and my companion. I can’t describe how much he has been a blessing since he came into my life. I am the luckiest woman on earth because my husband is a wonderful man.

How would you describe him?

He is a very caring and loving person.

How did he propose to you?

He proposed to me at home. He wanted to do it somewhere else but I always sensed it. When he is up to something. From the beginning, I knew we were going to end up together. So, when he proposed, I knew he was planning something.

A couple of kids. Maybe three or four.

How do you feel, sir?

I feel great and it’s nice to see you, as usual. ENCOMIUM has always been there for us. I pray the Almighty Father will also be there for you. I appreciate your company.

The first day your daughter brought her husband home, what was your reaction?

I am from Ogun State and my son in law is from Benue. My children know me for my free disposition towards any tribe they bring. I do not oppose anything that is personal to them. All I do is to encourage them and find out how well they are doing.

I go along with them. For this, she is my last daughter, so fortunately, she is the one I am staging a wedding for, and I thank the Lord for His mercies for being with me from the beginning and seeing me to the end. I have great joy in my heart.

What is your wish and advice for the new couple?

It should be well with them. They should make prayer a big sign post in their life to enable them navigate their path in creation. Fortunately, both of them are of the same faith. I have no cause to worry. My prayer is that they should continue to succeed as they go through their experiences.

I am sure the Lord will be with them because they already have the truth in their hands. They should find life easy and manageable. They should be closer to their Creator and pray together, work hard and success will be theirs.
