Jonathan urges Nigerian couples to love, endure other

President Goodluck Jonathan has urged Nigerian couples to love and endure each other to guarantee a successful marriage.

Jonathan spoke on Saturday in Otuoke, Bayelsa, during the traditional marriage of his daughter, Faith, to Godswill Edwards

“Endurance is the ingredient for marriage; for any marriage to last endurance is key, ‘he said.

Jonathan expressed appreciation to dignitaries who attended the marriage and described the ceremony as a `painful joy that could not be avoided.’

“It is a painful joy; my wife and I are happy and we appreciate you for witnessing the marriage of our daughter.

“People that saw me today didn’t recognise me. I am preparing to be a grandfather,” Jonathan said humorously.

Vice-President Namadi Sambo, who chaired the occasion, advised the couple to be tolerant, friendly, and obedient to the marriage institution.

Several dignitaries including governors, ministers, captains of industries attended the marriage.
