VP Shettima Counsels Couple on Preserving Sanctity of Marriage

The Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima, has enjoined young couples to always preserve the sanctity of marriage as enshrined in the holy books, especially the affirmation of its importance and sanctity in the Qur’an.

The Vice President gave the admonition on Sunday in Lagos at the wedding ceremony of the son of Hon. kafilat Ogbara, member representing Kosofe federal constituency in the House Representatives, Alhaji Abdulbasit Ogbara and Raabiha Mohammad.

The VP who was Special Guest of Honour also represented President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the occasion.

Citing a verse in the holy book in his goodwill message and blessing of the couple, Senator Shettima observed that there are many affirmations of the importance of marriage.

He said the gathering was a witness to “the accession to matrimony of Abdulbasit and Raabiha,” noting that “as a young couple, this is the commencement of one of the most spiritually fulfilling endeavours of the life process.”

While congratulating the newly wedded, the Vice President urged them to adhere to their vows, adding that “a marriage is not and has never been a bed of roses.”

VP Shettima further prayed for the couple, saying “you would be happy; you’d have dreams and ambitions, and by the grace of Allah, we pray that you’d be able to actualize these dreams and ambitions.”

Also present at the event were former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo; the Senator representing Lagos East in the National Assembly, Sen. Mukhail Abiru and Hon. Usman Zannah, among other dignitaries.
