Speaking after the event, Perpetua said: “I feel great and I really thank Almighty God who has made this day to come at last.”

When asked by Legit.ng's reporter what attracted her to her husband, Nkwocha said: “His calmness caught my attention, I’m an easy going person and somehow shy. So I really wanted to settle down with someone that’s just like me.”

On his part, Nwufoh who is a lecturer, narrated to our reporter how he met his wife.

He said: "I'm very happy about today, when I met my wife I had no idea she was this big. I met her at the stadium arena in Calabar and I didn't even know she was a footballer. It was much later I got to know she was the captain of Pelican Stars as at that time. I've known her for more than ten years."

On how many kids they will like to have, the bride had this to say: "Two is okay but will accept whatever God gives us."

The groom on his part said: "I'm okay with whatever my wife wants and above all whatever God gives us."
