Two corp members who met through the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme are set to get married this Saturday.
The couple, Felicia Haruna and Mark Makafan met at the Mangu Orientation Camp in Plateau state in 2019 and they are about to wed this Saturday, May 30.
The official page of NYSC Plateau state announced this via their official Facebook page as the couple invited the State Coordinator of NYSC Plateau, Caroline Embu to their upcoming wedding.
The NYSC Plateau’s statement reads;
“Corps Members Felicia Haruna PL/19B/2197 from Kaduna State and Mark Makafan Odi PL/19B/1217 from Kogi State have demonstrated symbol of true friendship, affection and love towards a blissful marital union.
“They were both deployed to Plateau State for the one year mandatory service to the nation having obeyed the clarion call and reported to the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Mangu, Mangu LGA, for the 2019 Batch “B” service year.
“Being members of seven (7) Platoon in camp, the duo from different backgrounds, yet, with many similarities, the relationship which was borne at Mangu camp has today culminated into marriage and as the service year draws to a close, they have unanimously declared, “I DO”.
“Extending the wedding invitation to the State Coordinator, NYSC Plateau, Caroline Embu, the Corps Members expressed great joy to have met during the service year and united together in love to a life time adventure.
“They appreciated the NYSC Scheme for the enabling environment it created through the deployment of graduate youths to states other than their states of origin to promote unity irrespective of origin, religion, class, tribe and cultural differences which is also bridging gaps and building long lasting relationships.
“Their wedding ceremony is scheduled to hold at St Peter Claver Catholic Church Cathedral Kafanchan, Kaduna State on Saturday, May 30, 2020 by 10:00 am, two days after their Passing-Out from National Service.”
