A visually impaired couple sealed their love as they got married in a wedding ceremony that attracted over 15 Catholic priests and government functionaries in Anambra state.
The groom was identified as Thankgod Ohaeri, a legal practitioner and the bride, Amarachi Nwokedi, works at the Anambra State Ministry of Education.
In an interview with the Anambra State Broadcasting Sevice, ABS, the ThankGodspoke about how he met his wife and how some people tried to discourage him from getting married.
In his words;
“Today, I feel great walking down the aisle with my lovely wife. It was indeed ordained by God. By the grace of God I feel I have moved to the next level of life. I met my wife when I was a student. She was living close to my apartment and I was the one helping her. So from there, we fell in love and that’s what led to today’s occasion.”
“There were many challenges, but with God on our side we have been scaling through. Though my wife is blind, she’s doing well. It is a thing of joy to be with her. When I said I want to marry, many people were against me, but as a man I know what I want and I went for it.”
“I realized that there is ability in disability, that a person is blind doesn’t mean he/she can’t go to school. My wife is a civil servant and works in the Ministry of Education. So I wish we will continue in the mutual understanding we have built, because understanding matters so much in any marriage”.
