Former General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church worldwide, Prophet Samuel Abiara, has revealed why he took a new wife.
Prophet Abiara who lost his wife of 50 years Christiana Abiara in 2016 said God told him to remarry, adding that his decision to remarry was also supported by the scriptures.
The CAC prophet at a colourful ceremony in Ibadan, capital of Oyo State, on Thursday wedded his new bride, Grace Ojewande, worships at the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM).
In attendance at the wedding, which took place at the Christ Apostolic Church, Agbala Itura, were top dignitaries including respected Christian leaders.
Saturday Punch reports that the new wife, who could not hide her joy at the occasion, is said to be in her early 50s and a native of Ifetedo in Osun State.
According to findings, Ojewande, a Level 16 officer at the Lagos State Ministry of Education, had never been married or bore any child before exchanging marital vows with the cleric.
Giving reasons why he decided to remarry at 75, Prophet Abiara had said that he consulted widely before arriving at his choice.
He said, “My children, who are now grown-ups, held a meeting and concluded that I should get a new wife who will attend to my everyday needs at old age.
“After due consideration and having satisfied my conscience that my children’s suggestion was in conformity with the scriptures, I made up my mind to marry a new wife.
“The Bible established it that when a man loses his wife, he has the right to remarry. I am acting based on the directive of God and the advice of my children.”
