There was drama in a Nigerian church located at Port Harcourt as church members, wedding guests slammed a pastor for refusing to officiate a wedding ceremony because the couple arrives five minutes late.
Although the couple and their respective family members apologized and pleaded with the pastor, the so-called man of God went to his office and declined to wed them at the appointed time. He left the couple waiting for one hour and allegedly said he will wed them at his own convenience inside his office, not in the church as expected.
The situation caused a lot of confusion as wedding guests vented their spleen on the pastor with verbal abuse while the bride shed tears outside the church premises. Sharing footage from the Fulfilling Word Foundation church, the wedding photographer wrote: “Annoying events at the wedding I was covering today in PH.
“The couple came 5 minutes late and the pastor left the church, kept us for 1 hour, and said he’ll join them in his office after returning. “Some pastors are feeling like God.”
Eventually, the couple got tired of waiting for the pastor and got another person to serve as their officiating pastor.
