According to the NYSC coordinator, when the corps members met him on the issue, he advised them to seek permission of their parents.

“I told them that when they meet their family and they agreed, that is when they should inform the NYSC management so that we can be part of it.

“Since then, I did not hear from them again, until after about six months when they brought an invitation letter to me for their wedding, I was very happy when I saw the invitation.

“They narrated to me how their parents were involved, and accepted the union, that is when we engaged seriously to ensure the success of the marriage,” he said.

Mr Baba explained that the marriage will be the first of it’s kind in Kano NYSC, adding that, it justifies the purpose of the scheme which was established to ensure unity among Nigerians.

Recalling genesis of the relationship, Mr Musa said, “We met in camp during our platoon activities, especially the day we met during our platoon duty in the kitchen”.

Mr Musa, a native of Afo from Nasarawa State explained that he was fully attracted to Hauwa when he visited her family and appreciated the kind of hospitality accorded to him.

“I was initially attracted by her good character, kindness and respect to people which I noticed during our stay in camp, therefore I am really in love with her.

“It was a wonderful experience because in the first place, my intention was to serve in Abuja, but when my posting came out i was posted to Kano, I accepted in good faith not knowing that this is what will happened,” he said.

Also responding, Miss Bagudu, a native of Nupe from Niger State said she accepted him because she was impressed by his gentleness and kindness during their three-week stay in the orientation camp.

According to her, she initially did not want to serve Kano, saying “Alhamdulillah, ‘thanks be to God” as she has found a husband, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted Miss Bagudu as saying.
