Today, in the ancient city of Ukwulu in Dunukofia Local Government, Anambra state, South East Nigeria; a new chapter in life and family is set to commence as Best Choice Sports Editor, Amaechi Vitus Agbo is set to wed his heartthrob, Miss Chikaodili Charity Okonkwo.
The wedding which is set to take place at St Theresa’s Catholic Church, will commence by 10am.
Bearing in mind the current situation in the country caused by the ravaging COVID-19, the wedding and traditional marriage will hold in a low key with few family members according to federal and state governments’ directives on public gathering.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with BSN Sports, Mr Agbo stated that all COVID-19 procedures including social distancing will be duly observed.
He noted that while he would have loved to see friends, colleagues, associates to grace his day, he however regretted that the situation in the country and globally has made this expected honour an impossible fulfillment.
“I look forward to this day with great expectation, joy and total glory and honour to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, who have set out today to manifest His glory. We are grateful to God for today.
“Ordinarily, today my colleagues, friends and associates as well as well wishers would have loved to be with me, but the inevitability of the ravaging COVID-19 has made this honour an impossible feat.
“All procedures and measures set out by the federal and state governments in curtailing the spread of COVID-19 will be observed. Social distancing, use of sanitiser and face mask, among others will be observed,” he said.
On how their love journey journey started, the Media Manager to Nigeria’s first and only Olympic female gold medalist, Chioma Ajunwa, noted that initially they were just friends until the power of love manifested.
He said that the relationship which lasted for four years before today, has been one of great manifestations and thanked God for the gift of Charity in his life.
“It started just like friendship, you know. We belong to the same church and are active members of the youth group.
“So it got off from there and today, what started like a mere friendship has blossomed into a marriage and I am grateful to God.
“At the beginning, there was no profession of love but as the relationship went on, particularly because we observed that we have a lot of things in common, God perfected today to be.
“I bless God for giving me the privilege to meet Charity this far. We return all glory to Him. He knows the plans He has for us and with the wedding and traditional marriage today, He will continue to manifest His glory upon us,” he concluded.
