A Nigerian lady, Maimunatu Sa’idu, has revealed that she chose to wed Dahuru Abdulhamid Idris, a blind teacher because she loves him most out of all of her suitors.
Saidu and Idris were wed in Zakirai, Gezawa Local Government Area, Kano State on Friday, May 12.
She claimed in an interview with DailyTrust that she met her spouse and instantly fell in love with him.
Her husband gained popularity in 2021, after being interviewed about his attempts to obtain an education and how he was then working as a volunteer teacher in a public school.
He enjoyed goodwill from so many Nigerians including an anonymous person who purchased a three-bedroom flat for him and he also got a job with the Kano state government as a teacher.
“I have loved him from the first day I met him and I will continue till eternity. I believe that God destined us to be together and I accept it with my heart. He is the kind of person I want to be with in my life.
“He is decent, gentle and loves everything about religion. Marrying him is like fulfilling a life ambition, I promised myself I will marry the best person I love among my suitors. I will try my best to discharge my responsibilities. I will take good care of him and his entire family,” she said.
According to the groom, he met her through her elder brother who was his friend and knew he wanted to marry her because of the way she accepted his disability.
