He said:

“Marriage is family value, character. The reason why there are issues in society today is because families are broken. When values are enshrined in families, the entire society will be good.”

Buhari charged the couple to build their family on the word of God, have a regular family altar of prayers, and give attention to building enduring character.

The wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, who was represented by the wife of the Ebonyi state governor, Mrs Rachael Umahi, enjoined the couple to love and respect one another in order to enjoy their union.

This was contained in a statement issued by Kelvin Ebiri, the media aide to the Rivers state governor.
