A Nigerian pastor has caused a massive stir on the internet by saying any young man who decides to spend N2,000,000 (₵30,000) on their weddings while just starting their lives has no sense.
The Nigerian pastor Dr. Abel Damina who founded Senior Pastor of Power City International Ministry said this in a recent sermon in his church.
‘You are a young man just starting life but you want to spend N2 million on a wedding, you don’t have sense. The school fees your father spent were wasted. You need to go back to the village to refund the fees. N2 million can set up a good business for you if you have sense,’ he began.
That is why people get married and for one year they are still paying debts. So, their marriage starts with bitterness and anger. Everybody is angry because when there is debt to pay and no money to eat, there will be tension in the house. That love will suddenly finish.”
He noted that most people are willing to go to this extent because they want to impress people on Facebook and other social media platforms.
“Who knows you on Facebook?. Facebook is for faceless people who you don’t even know, yet you want to impress them and make your young man broke,” he said.
