“Certainly, as stated correctly, this is a national wedding, a national project. We are relieved that we were able to complete the task peacefully. I pray that Allah, in his infinite mercy, will guide the couple to live happily ever after in this world. marriage for the long term
“I appeal to the majority of our people to observe and emulate a very simple way of life that is supported by traditional culture, which we all know helps to unite the people.
“In this event, I saw solidarity, peace, and harmony.” So I pray that God will continue to give us peace and harmony, and that others will rejoice,” the governor said.
On his part, the Ooni of Ife stated that such unity can lead to a better economy, while urging Nigerians to focus more on the unifying factors.
