Emuoboh & Emuoboh GBagi at Fame Dela Hall of Wedding day

By Urhobotoday Reporter, Warri
WARRI: It was like a marriage made in heaven. All things stick high to high heaven with the marriage ceremony between Emuoboh Gbagi and Emuoboh Iwhewhe which is more or less a week long ceremony that commenced with traditional marriage ceremony in Ekpan in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.
This was rightly followed after a day’s interval with the wedding ceremony at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Warri with over 50 priests in attendance. The officiating priests were: Chief Celebrant – Msgr Joachim Aghware; Principal Concelebrants and Very Rev. Fr. Bernard A. Olagba – Chancellor, Warri Diocese among others.

After this, reception followed at the Precious Hall of Fame Dela Hall of the newly yet to be commissioned Woodrige Hotel located at Petroleum Training Institute (PTI) Junction, Effurun. Seeking opinion of some of the personalities on Olorogn Kenneth Gbagi at the occasion,
President Goodluck Jonathan who was ably represented by the Director General of Bureau of Public Procurement sees Gbagi as a principle-centred person who sees things differently.
Because he sees things differently, he thinks differently, he acts differently. Because he has a high degree of security, guidance, wisdom and power that flow from a solid, unchanging core, he has the foundation of a highly proactive and highly effective life.
Senate President, Senator David Mark sees Gbagi as a man who has a sense of mission which is the essence of his own proactivity. He has the vision and the values that direct his life. He
has the basic direction from which he sets his long and short – term goals. He has the power of a written constitution based on correct principles, against which every decision concerning the most effective use of his time, talents, and energies can be effectively measured.
Senator Pius Ewherido, representing Delta Central Senatorial District sees Gbagi as a principle centered person who try to stand apart from the emotion of the situation and from other factors that would act on him, and evaluate the options. Looking at the balanced whole – the
work needs, the family needs, other needs that may be involved and the possible implication of the various alternative decisions – he will try to come up with the best solution, taking all factors into consideration.
For Chief E.K. Clark, foremost Ijaw Leaders, he simply wondered that at the very heart of our circle of influence is our ability to make and keep commitments and promises. The commitments we make to ourselves and to others, and our integrity to those commitment, is the
essence and clearest manifestation of our proactivity.
Chief Alaowei Bozimo, ex-minister of state for police describes Gbagi as a man of change. That change – real change – comes from the inside out. It doesn’t come from hacking at the leaves of attitude and behavior with quick fix personality ethic techniques. It comes from striking at the root – the fabric of our thought, the fundamental, essential paradigms, which give definition to our character and create the lens through which we see the world.
As for Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, former Special Assistant to the president on National Assembly Matters and Senate Liaison Officer to the president says of Gbagi as a man of character Ethic, which he believes to be the foundation of success that teaches that there are basic principles of effective living, and that people can only experience true success and enduring happiness as they learn and integrate these principles into their basic character.
Chief Bernard Edewor says of Gbagi as one who would cultivate the habit of always keeping the promises he makes, who build bridges oftrust that span the gaps of understanding between you and others.”
Turning to the newly wedded couple, Fr. Vincent Owoaka said that they should have a healthy attitude towards themselves and should be constantly humble before the Lord. But they should not lose sight of the fact that we are required to “love our neighbours as ourselves” (see Luke 10:27) which, whatever else it means, certainly insists that we should have a healthy sense of self-respect and encourage and protect our neighbour as he seeks to develop a similar attitude.
Selfishness is far removed from the healthy self-respect that God
requires us to have and which He expects us in terms of attitudes to other people. He, however, advised them to show extravagant love which means giving our best in service to God in everything we do. That then Mary took half a litre of a very expensive perfume made of pure nard, poured it on Jesus’ feet, and wiped them with her hair. The sweet smell of the
perfume filled the whole house (John 12:3).
At the end of the mass, the couple were escorted by all to the newly built house for the couple that is located along Warri – Sapele Road, before Urhobo College for another down-to-earth ceremony with life-band Musician to perform. There the newly built magnificent house was declared open by Fr. Moses Iyara, who is the Prior, Augustinian Community, Oil Field Road, Warri, who went round every nook and cranny of the house to bless it. Fr. Moses, who was the Homilist at the wedding at the Sacred Heart Cathedral, Warri, reminded the couples of the Mustard Seed and the yeast
