NAIJ.com earlier shared lovely photos of military officers who are in love and plan to walk down the aisle soon. Here's a touching story of two army generals who met and fell i n love in 1990 at orientation camp.
Brig. Gen. Clifford Wanda and Brig. Gen. Cecelia Akagu met at Jaji army orientation camp in 1990. Their love has stood the test of time and they shared their inspiring story in a recent interview.
In an interview with Punch, they both revealed what attracted them to each other and how their simple friendship and constant quarrels led to a happy marriage which they are both still enjoying.
According to Brigadier General Wanda, his wife touched his heart with her tough nature. He explained she was one confident woman who let cupid shoot him right at the heart.
He said: "I saw so many things in her but the most prominent ones are that she is always cool, calm, composed and you could see a woman who is in charge. She doesn’t fidget; she is not the fidgety type, she is always in charge. I saw a woman I could trust and that would hold on if I was not around. Above all, she was God-fearing. These are some of the things I saw in her," he revealed."
For Brigadier Generla Akagu, he was a physical representation of all she had ever dreamed in a partner. She said: "I did social science. When I was growing up – right from secondary school – I told myself that I was going to marry a scientist. As young as I was, because I am dark, I told myself that I was going to marry someone that is fair, fine and very intelligent. We met and became very good friends. We were however fighting at the beginning; we were not really agreeing. I remember one of my roommates, Toyin – she’s a brigadier general too – telling me each time we fought that ‘is it not you? I know you will always reconcile.’ That was how we started until the relationship led to marriage."
