- An 84-year-old pastor has finally presented the dowry of his 70-year-old wife to her parents
- This took place in September 2018, 46 years after they married
- According to Pastor Ojo, he decided to honour his wife by paying her bride price
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that an 84-year-old pastor, John Olusola Ojo, has paid the bride price of his 70-year-old wife, Olabisi, 46 years after marriage.
Ojo, who is the founder of the Odi-Ajaye Zone of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) explained that he decided to honour his wife.
According to sources, he paid her dowry in September 2018, years after her family had disagreed about their union.
He added that he met Olabisi during his youth, he was very poor and also had come from a poor family background.
Olabisi on the other hand, was from a privileged home. At the time they met, she was living with her uncle who was grooming her for one of his colleagues, who worked as a driver at the Nigeria Railway Corporation.
Olabisi however refused to give in to her uncle’s demands as her heart was already with Olusola Ojo and she was ready to stay with him, regardless of his poor background.
For refusing to do as he requested, Olabisi was reportedly victimized by her uncle, but that did not dissuade her, as she stood her grounds that she would marry no other person but Ojo.
According to Pa Ojo, they lived so happily that his in-laws forgot to ask him for the dowry of their daughter.
