She described her attendance as a thing of joy “to have made it to the wedding which was full of fun and interesting personalities. What we saw at the function showed that parents of the new couple were responsible. May God bless their union.”

The soft-spoken woman urged Nigerians in the US and other foreign countries to always identify with one another to project Nigeria as land of love, regardless of the current challenge.

“That should be our role to douse tension, regarding State of our country. Our leaders should have interest of the masses at heart. Nobody should be happy with what goes on back home but I am positive that God has not forgotten us,” she noted.
