See Photos Of Goodluck Jonathan's Daughter Wedding In Which Customised Iphones Were Shared

Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan is a Nigerian politician who served as the President of Nigeria from 2010 to 2015. 

Before we get to see the wedding photos of his daughter, let us briefly look at the biography of the former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Goodluck Ebele Jonathan saw the light of this world on the 20th day of November, 1957 in Bayelsa State.

His father was a canoe maker. Growing up as a child wasn't favourable for Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as his parents were not wealthy. It was from the minimal expenditure that his father made out from the canoes he sold that Goodluck Jonathan had the option to go to school. 

After his elementary and secondary school education which he both had in Bayelsa State, he advanced his education to the tertiary level. He got a Second Class honours degree in Zoology, a Master of Science certificate in Hydrobiology just as a PhD degree in Zoology. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan went into politics in the year 1998. 

Before going into politics, Goodluck Jonathan had at first held the position of an Education Officer, a Lecturer as well as an Environmental Protection Officer. In the year 2005, Goodluck Jonathan became the Executive Governor of Bayelsa State. As around then, he was the 6th governor of Bayelsa State. 

It is advantageous to take note of that before Goodluck Jonathan became the governor of Bayelsa State, he was the Deputy Governor of the Bayelsa state from 1999 to 2005.

Goodluck Jonathan was picked as a running mate of the Former President of Nigeria, Late Umaru Musa Yar'Adua. The victory of late Umaru Musa Yar'Adua prompted the swearing in of Goodluck Jonathan as the Vice President of Nigeria. This occurred in the year 2007. In 2009,he became the Acting President as the Former President of Nigeria, Late Umaru Musa Yar'Adua was basically sick and couldn't play out his obligations adequately due to his condition of his wellbeing. 

In 2010, upon the death of Umaru Musa Yar'Adua, Goodluck Jonathan was confirmed as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Goodluck Jonathan had made a promise to Nigerians that he would cooperate with them as a grassroot level in an offer to know their predicaments as citizens. 

He satisfied his promise after turning into the President of Nigeria in 2010. He created a Facebook page for himself so as to have an ordinary connection with the public. 

This was in an offer to take care of the requirements, dispute and situations of general public. He is considered as the first president of Nigeria to have opened a social page for such explanation. 

That very year, Goodluck Jonathan declared his entrance into governmental issues. He made the declaration on his Facebook page expressing that he would be contesting in the presidential election of 2011. 

He won the presidential political race in 2011 yet his dreams to go in for a second tenure didn't come to reality in 2015 as he lost to the present leader of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari. 

Regardless of the way that Goodluck Jonathan didn't make it to second tenure, he is considered by numerous individuals as the best President Nigeria has ever had. 

Goodluck Jonathan got married to Dame Patience quite a while back before he went into politics. Patience Jonathan was a seasoned teacher before she rose to the position of the First Lady of Nigeria. Dame Patience Jonathan was once a Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa State. 

Patience Jonathan holds a National Certificate of Education (NCE) degree in Mathematics and Biology. She went to the Rivers State College of Arts and Science, Port Harcourt. Later, Dame Patience Jonathan went to the University of Port Harcourt where she studied Biology and Psychology. 

The union of Dame Patience Jonathan and Goodluck Jonathan is honored with two adorable children.

In the year 2014, The daughter of Dame Patience Jonathan and Goodluck Jonathan got married to her husband Godswill Osim Edward at the Abuja Ecumenical Center on Saturday 12th April, 2014.

The marriage between the daughter of the former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan and her husband, God'swill was indeed a colorful event in which lots of dignitaries from all walks of life graced the occasion.

The event was an incredible one as it had lots of dignitaries in participation. The wedding service was also on live broadcast on different TV channels. Visitors who graced the event all went home with Customised iPhones. 

The iPhones were all packaged in a fancy white pack with a brilliant 'thank you for coming' written on it.
