The Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has confirmed that his eldest daughter, Kiki Damilola Osinbajo is set to wed her heartthrob, Oluseun Bakare, son of Nigerian billionaire, Bola Shagaya.
Yemi Osinbajo who confirmed the news on his social media accounts came under heavy criticism by OAP Daddy Freeze who stated that the VP who is a Redeemed Pastor is giving out her daughter’s hand in marriage to a Muslim because of the political pedigree involved.
Freeze further added that he knows the Redeemed General overseer and his wife will attend the wedding because they are big shots otherwise they would have not agreed on a normal church member who is bent on marrying a Muslim.
Daddy Freeze wrote;
“REDEEMED PASTOR OSHINBAJO’S DAUGHTER SET TO MARRY..
I congratulate them and sincerely wish them well as they look really happy and in love!
His name seems Muslim… If it’s normal church rats that want to marry Muslims, they won’t agree o… The will go as far as saying “Allah is not God” and say “let’s not be unequally yoked”. But with the political pedigree involved here, I’m sure even the GO and his Mummy will attend.”
This brings us to the story of a high profile case where a Redeemed pastor, Raymond Uzoechina, whose daughter, Charity Uzoechina, wanted to marry a Muslim and was stopped by all means.
Charity Uzoechina, the daughter of Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor, who made headlines with her story of conversion to Islam, was set to marry the lawyer who handled her controversial case in court but the Niger state Government called it off.
Aisha who was formerly known as Charity Uzoechina, 26, was supposed to be marrying her Muslim lawyer, Barrister Tijani.
However, the Governor of Niger state, Babangida Aliyu, where Uzoechina resides, ordered that the wedding be stopped as he got information that Aisha’s parents were not informed of her upcoming wedding.
Vanguard reports that imams and other Muslim clerics were already gathered when the wedding was cancelled.
It was reported that Aisha did not inform her parents about the wedding because of the differences between them about her conversion to Islam. Back in 2013, Aisha sued her parents for interfering in her decision to change religion.
Meanwhile, the representative of the National body of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Niger state Chapter Chairman, Dr Musa Dada, had informed the State’s Commissioner on Religious Matters and the Attorney General of the state about the upcoming wedding between Aisha and Barrister Tijani.
