Pastor E.A. Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Church, has warned that marriages contracted on or through the social media may not last. He gave the warning in a sermon he preached on at the wedding of the adopted daughter of President Goodluck Jonathan, Faith and her husband, Godswill, in Abuja.
Pastor Adeboye stressed that the success of any marriage rests on the husband as head and thus advised the groom to ensure that the marriage succeeded. He urged him not to criticise his wife but correct her in love.
Warning against the crazy for social media affair, he said, “If you marry the modern way like on Facebook, you may likely divorce the modern way. Marry traditionally and involve God.”
The mention of the names of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and Governor Rotimi Amaechi attracted a loud ovation from the congregation who were surprised, since both men were not at the traditional marriage.
The extra security measures put in place for the wedding by a combined team of all security agencies led to a lock down in the Federal Capital Territory, especially at the Central Business District.
