A young Nigerian pastor has caused mixed reactions online after he took to his Facebook page to announce his forthcoming wedding to the love of his life.
The young clergy, identified as Pastor Caleb Dike Nathaniel, shared photos with his fiancée, Blessing, and disclosed that the marriage is ordained by God.
The wedding is scheduled to take place in May 2022 in Benin City, Edo State.
The wedding has however gotten people talking online as they point out how young the intending couple look in the pre-wedding photos.
In his words: “Stage 1. Introduction. Please Save The Date. Brethren Good Morning And Good News. Just As God Planned It.
Love is the only genuine Principle from which a marriage with a difference can Spring -And the Heart of Love is Love from the Heart. It was ordained from the foundation of the Celestial. Celebrate With us and be celebrated in Jesus Name Amen.”
However, while some congratulated the couple, others are of the view that they are still children. See some reactions below,
