Gov. Akeredolu, eminent Nigerians honour Dr Tunji Abayomi @ daughter’s wedding
It was a gathering of top notch members of the bar, the bench, political and social activists at the Holy Matrimony of the daughter of Dr. Tunji Abayomi at the Archbishop Vining Anglican Church, Ikeja Lagos.
The couple, Iyintitunfoluwa and her heartthrob, Olanrewaju, was joined together by the Lord Bishop of Ibadan South Diocese of the Anglican Communion, Rt Rev. Dr Jacob Ajetumobi.
In his sermon, the Dean Archbishop Vining Memorial Church Cathedral, Venerable Goke Agara, described marriage as a life long institution created by God for His children to enjoy and not to endure.
The clergy, who used the Book of Psalm, Chapter 128 to highlight Ten Blessings of Christian Marriage, said the blessings are the ingredients required for the sustenance of a lovely and prosperous family.
He, however, said that the blessings would only be long lasting and enduring if the couple fear God and live their lives within the confines of the Almighty as stated in the Holy Scriptures.
At the reception, chaired by a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Chief Wole Olanipekun, dignitaries, including the Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, from far and near thronged the venue to honour the new family and their parents.
