Speaking, the NYSC state coordinator, Kehinde Aremu described the event as unique, saying there had never been an assemblage of such marriage in the history of the scheme.
He attributed the development to what he called the conducive environment and friendly disposition of the people of the state and the government, calling on the celebrants to reciprocate by investing in the state.
Aremu said “We thank Governor Willie Obiano for creating a conducive environment and his commitment towards the welfare of corps members in the state.
“This success story doesn’t end with the service year. Anambra is conducive for everything. If the environment was unfriendly, this couldn’t have been possible. You’ve invested emotions, but invest money in developing the state.”
On her part, the assistant director, Corps Welfare and Health Services, Mrs Ify Nwafor, said one of the reasons for the establishment of the scheme was for integration, including chances for corps members to meet the love of their lives.
“Marriage is a journey that can be both fun and hell. You came, you served and married. I pray for you all to have a joyful and loving married,” she said.
One of the couples, Onyema Nwachoko who spoke to NewsOnline Nigeria via phone call said he met her wife while she was praying at the family house of the Christian Corpers fellowship, thanking both God and the government for creating the NYSC platform.
“Without NYSC I wouldn’t have met my wife,” he added.
