By Sadiq Abubakar, Abuja.
The senate minority leader, Senator Phillip Aduda representing the FCT on Saturday, attended the wedding fatiha of a customs officer, Sadiq Gwomna, who tied the knot with Sakina Adamu at Ledi community in Gwagwalada area council of Abuja.
Aduda, while speaking during wedding fatiha, said the couple must always find how to agree in prayers whenever they hold divergent opinions.
He also urged them not to allowed a third party to wade into their marriage, adding that they must also learn to tolerate each other.
“And also for the amount of investment that your parents have made on you and giving you all the exposure that they didn’t have, the likelihood that you will agree all the time is very slim and the reason is very simple because both of you are thinking.
“You are also expected to find a common ground when your opinion differs, and once you understand that you are not having differences because you are not smart, but because you are actually smart, your union will endure.
“We appreciate that you may not agree all the times, but you must always find how to agree in prayers. It is very important. Whatever issues or challenges that may be in front of you, you need to come together and hold each other in prayers,” he advised.
Aduda, who described the marriage as a foundation of a family unit and the core of a virtuous home from which a family is established, said that marriage is meant to be the official channel of procreation and the establishment of society.
He, however, appreciated the people of Ledi community for their continuous support for him, even as he pledged to continue to do good things that will impact on their lives.
He also urged people of the community especially the youth to continue to live in peace with each other and be law abiding to constituted authorities.
Also speaking, the Aguma of Gwagwalada, His Royal Highness (HRH) Alhaji Muhammad Magaji, advised the couple to always work, think and decide things together, charging them to hold unto God at all times.
Magaji, while noting that the couple are from two different families with different ideologies and practice, charged them to learn to love and forgive.
