A hearing-impaired couple, Ezemba Ndubueze and Udousoro Comfort, got tied together in holy matrimony at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enugwu Nanka in Orumba north local government area in Nigeria.
The event had in attendance the governor of the state, Willie Obiano, who was ably represented by the Senior Special Assistant on disability matters Barr. Chuks Ezewuzie. The governor gave his assurance at the wedding, saying his administration will continue to give priority to people living with disabilities in the state.
