Oghale added that there were temptations from all angles but they were able to withstand them thanks to the counselling they received.

The bride said she took the decision to be chaste as a teen.

She said fulfilling the vow (to remain chaste) is one of the best things that would happen to her.


“It was not easy for me. I was severally tempted by my lecturers while in the university. Friends also tried to lure me into fornication and men asked me out. In fact, I went through so many challenges. But what guided me was God and my principle,” she said.
