President Goodluck Jonathan will never support any attempt to divide Nigeria, Vice-President Nnamadi Sambo has said.
Sambo made this known on Saturday in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, during the traditional wedding ceremony of Jonathan’s foster daughter, Faith Sakwe and Prince of Osimotu Kingdom in Abi, Cross River State, Godswill Osim.
The vice president, who was chairman of the occasion, said he and President Jonathan were committed to the unity and indivisibility of Nigeria.
He also restated their commitment to the transformation of the country.
Sambo said he was greatly honoured to be part of the ceremony, adding that it was ordained by God.
The Vice-President stated, “Our partnership in transparent and focused government has been our strength. President Jonathan and I are committed to the unity, indivisibility and total transformation of the socio-economic status of Nigeria and Nigerians.
“We have been encouraged by the support and cooperation of our people who have been patient with us in nation-building”.
In his advice to the couple, Sambo urged them to embrace the secret of a successful marriage which he identified as faithfulness, tolerance and honesty.
He commended the president and First Lady, Dame Patience, for Faith’s upbringing.
He further commended all the invited guests for honouring President Jonathan with their presence.
He added, “The secret behind a successful marriage is for both the bride and the bridegroom to be faithful to each other, to be tolerant and honest. When you do this, God will manifest in your life and good luck will be your portion”.
