The well attended wedding ceremony apparently served as a strong magnet as it attracted people from various parts of the country, who came in their numbers to rejoice with Yusuf’s family at a ceremony that took place at MB Yusuf’s residence, along Asa-Dam bypass, Ilorin.

The event was greeted with pomp and pageantry following the caliber of people whose physical  presense glaringly added glitz and glamour to the occasion.

As an active grassroot man and amazing Federal worker with connection and influences, MB Yusuf was full of praises for recording a resounding success on the wedding ceremony of his beloved daughter.

Being a community mobilizer with a prestigious traditional title of ‘JAGUNMOLU of Ago-Oja’; a fast growing and an agrarian community in Asa local government area of kwara state,  MB Yusuf was able to pull  tremendous crowd from  Ago-Oja, Lagos and Oyo states, up North, including Eastern part of the country.

In his words, “I thank God for giving me the accomplishment of my wish about this Programme. Alhamdulullahi, I’m happy God has done it the way I want”.

He advised the new couple to use Almighty Allah as their bedrock, and to have God in mind in all their endeavours.

MB Yusuf therefore implored the newest couple to live with love and affection and not allow the third part to penetrate their affairs, affirming that doing so will give them the ample opportunity to live a happy and harmonious married life.
