He said “We met in camp during our platoon activities, especially the day we met during our platoon duty in the kitchen.
“Since then love took hold of me like breeze from nowhere. I was overwhelmed by her kindness and the kind of hospitality I received the first day I went to their house”.
On her own part, Hauwa said she never wanted to serve in Kano. She added that her deployment to the state has now turned out to be a huge blessing to her.
The graduate of I.B.B University in Lapai, Niger State said“Today I thank God because my being here has turned out to be a blessing”.
Kano state NYSC coordinator, Mal. Baba Ladan who confirmed the couple’s marriage said he now looks at them as role models for others.
Ladan said “l look at them as role models to other corps members that will start a relationship that will also end into a marriage”.
