Other governors in the company of Gov. Wike were Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue State, and Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State.
In his homily, the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Reverend Paulinus Ezeokafor admonished the couple to understand that marriage is a union ordained of God.
Therefore, he urged them to be devoted to God daily and nurse their love to grow for each other.
He stressed on the fact that there is no perfect marriage relationship, and that it is in their power to make their marriage to become what they desired.
Bishop Ezeokafor observed that most marriages experience intractable problems because the enthusiastic time spent by some couples to prepare for wedding ceremony isn’t same as the one spent to prepare for marriage that last a life time.
The Catholic Bishop exhorted them to learn to be patient with each other, be content with what each of them can offer, defend their marriage against intruders, and forgive each other always.
Bishop Ezeokafor also charged them to be faithful one to another, trust and be sincere to each other which, will help them to protect their marriage from collapsing.
Father of the bride, Justice Chima Centus Nweze thanked God for a successful wedding and acknowledged that history was made in having four governors in attendance.
