1st Lady, Tinubu, Fashola, others grace Oshiomhole’s daughter’s wedding

IT WAS a tale of two high octane weddings Saturday as dignitaries stormed Abuja for the weddings of  Jane Oshiomhole, daughter of the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, who got married to Achimugu Aduku, and the wedding of Nkechi Madueke to Dr. Edozie Akunyili, the son of former Minister for Information, Prof. Dora Akunyili. 
The two weddings held at Holy Trinity Church in Maitama, Abuja. While the wedding of Akuyili’s son held between the hours of 12 noon to 2pm,  that of the Edo State Governor’s daughter held between the hours of 2pm to 4pm.

The dignitaries that graced the wedding of the Oshiomhole’s daughter included the First Lady of the country, Dame Patience Jonathan who was the Mother of the Day, the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola, former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Governor of Ekiti, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, Governor of Anambra, Peter Obi and his wife and the Chairman of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) Chief Bisi Akande.
Others are Senator Oloruninmbe Mamorah,  former Governor of Rivers State, Peter Odili and his wife, former Governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion, Mrs. Titi Atiku, the wife of the presidential aspirant, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Chief Tom Ikimi, former External Affairs Minister and a host of others.
The Benin council of Chiefs were also at the wedding in representation of the Oba of Benin and Commissioners and Sate House of Assembly members from the Edo Sate legislature, women and youth groups also graced the occasion.
Some of the guests attended the two weddings which both had the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan as the Mother of the day.
Speaking at the wedding of Jane and Achimugu, Reverend Father Matthew Kukah in his sermon observed that though the wedding was meant to have held on the 18th of December 2010, it was shifted to yesterday because of the death of Jane’s mother who was buried on the 17th of December, adding that nonetheless, the event still remained a thing of joy because of his great conviction that the spirit of her mother was present at the event.
He traced the prevalent causes of divorce and its high incidence in different countries saying that the couple should make God the focus in order to have a good marriage.
Kukah said that there was the need for the wife to respect her husband and for the husband to love the wife, adding that the couple has a responsibility to ensure that their marriage succeeds.
The wedding of Akunyili’s son, Edozie also witnessed a full church attendance with a lot of serving member of the executive in attendance as well as Prof. Akunyili’s political supporters who came in different buses to the venue.
The reception for the wedding of Jane and Achimugu held at the Thisday Dome with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the Chairman of the occasion.
Tinubu enjoined the couple to live in love and harmony and to have respect for each other in order to have a sustainable relationship.
Nkechi and Edozie’s wedding reception held at the International Conference Centre.
Almost all the roads leading to the Church were blocked by the heavy traffic caused by the unusually large number of guests that came from different States of the country for the two separate events.
