The immediate past popular General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church worldwide, Prophet Samuel Abiara, on Thursday, walked down the aisle with his new bride, Grace Ojewande, one and half years after he lost his wife of over 50 years. He had earlier made his decision known earlier that he will be getting married according to God’s directives.

The colourful ceremony held in Ibadan, Oyo State. The new wife, is said to be in her early 50s and is a Level 16 officer at the Lagos State Ministry of Education, who worships at the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries. .

Sources revealed that the new bride had never been married or bore any child before exchanging marital vows with the clergy. 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.”
