The love story has been told of a Nigerian couple, Mr. and Mrs. Emmanuel Chukwugozie, who met while in transit some couple of years ago.
The lovely couple who hail from Enugu and Abia states met while on board the Peace Mass Transit bus while travelling to Nsukka enroute Gariki, Abuja, precisely on December 12, 2020, The Nation reports.
As the couple would later confide in this reporter, when they first met it was not a case of love at first sight really but providence had something in store for them.
After that brief encounter, a platonic friendship was forged and would later grow into a serious relationship leading to marriage.
With the preliminary period of courtship which lasted a few months only, a formal introduction ceremony took place on September 5, 2021 and subsequent traditional marriage rites almost a month apart, precisely on October 2, 2021.
One year down the line, the fairy tale of a marriage was consummated as the lovely couple welcomed a set of twins last month.
Naturally, the couple decided to bring out their drums and cymbals to celebrate their good fortune during their children’s dedication ceremony recently in Abia state.
Although it was meant to be a soiree, a close door ceremony hosting just a few friends, it snowballed into a shindig with friends from far and near assembling for the big bash.
Expectedly, upon invitation, Peace Mass Transit Aba branch’s Manager and PRO were there to grace the occasion. On behalf of the company, they gifted the babies the sum of fifty thousand naira.
While commenting on the development, the management of Peace Mass Transit (PMT) said commitment to quality and convenient transportation services for travellers has always been their utmost priority. But in the course of this, the company has come across several heartwarming stories of passengers-turned-life partners. One of such is the love story of Mr. and Mrs. Emmanuel Chukwugozie.
“Peace Mass Transit will continue to look forward to more heartwarming stories like this, whether of love, friendship, or some other connection that ended up continuing long after the journey with PMT ended.”
On their part, the couple thanked the management for the good gestures even as they assured that they would forever remain eternally grateful to Peace Mass Transit for providing the medium for them.
