He specially lauded the Chairman, South-West Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ondo, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, for his consistency, tenacity and relentlessly protecting and defending the people in the region, saying he was leading by example.
Also present were the Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde; Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola; Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun; former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel; Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo; Speaker, Ondo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Bamidele Oleyelogun, among several other traditional rulers and politicians.
The Bishop who specially congratulated the newly wedded couple on their wedding ceremony, described the day as a glorious and joyful day in the lives of both families.
He equally admonished the couple to make God the pillar of their marriage and avoid third party interference in their new home.
