Akwa Ibom State University Don celebrates 25 years of Marriage

Share This

A cross section of staff of Akwa Ibom State University on Sunday November 04, 2018 converged at Living Spring Bible Church Mbribit Itam in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State to join Dr. Essien Ukpe Ukoyo and his dear wife in celebrating their 25 years Marriage Silver Jubilee.

In his message of exhortation during the event, the Akwa Ibom State Chief Judge – His Lordship, Justice Godwin Abraham, spoke extensively on “the mystery of marriage” drawing his inference from Deuteronomy 10 verse 8 and 1 Corinthians 2 verse 9-14. 
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh 

Justice Godwin Abraham reminded the congregation that it takes a conscious act of separation on the path of every individual in other to become a useful tool in God’s hand. He mentioned that the mysteries of God are rather inexhaustible, positing that “eyes have not seen and ears have not heard”… Justice Abraham noted that there is a spiritual dimension, as well as a physical dimension to marriage and charged Christians to cultivate the ability to discern rightly the things of God.

The marriage celebration service featured messages of felicitation, a presentation by the Kings Kid Nursery School, renewal of marital vows, blessing/exchange of rings, blessing of the union and cutting of an anniversary cake.

The event was graced by friends and relations of the couple, as well as a cross section of the Akwa Ibom State University community. The event moderator was Dr. Ofonmbuk Atakpa, who incidentally was once a student of Dr. Essien Ukpe, back in University of Uyo.
