The undergraduates who reconnected on Facebook | Read Obinna and Sandra’s love story

We have got a beautiful love story for you this evening!

The groom, Obinna narrates it thus:

Sandra and I attended the same University. I was a 400 level Law student when she gained admission to study Accountancy. I was in a relationship then but that didn’t stop me from noticing her unique “Asian-like” face (she gets teased a lot for that :D). However, we didn’t get talking until a year later; my younger sister, Onyi, also gained admission to the same uni and got into the same department as Sandra (Accountancy). Onyi wanted to get into the school choir and I knew Sandra was a chorister so I got in touch with her to assist.

After I graduated in 2009, I buzzed her on Facebook (it was the rave back then) and we kept in touch with little chats here and there. We later became good friends. Somehow, we stopped communicating for about a year; I wanted more than friendship and she was in a relationship then. She kept pushing me away and then I backed off for a while.
Then came the nationwide strike during the fuel subsidy crisis of 2012, I was bored out of my mind from staying home and doing nothing (I was serving in Lagos at the time). So I scrolled through my contact list randomly looking for who to call and gist with, and Sandra’s name jumps out. We’ve been talking every single day since. We made things official a month later. We’ve been best of friends since and more or less my Siamese twin. We been dated for 2 years before I asked her to marry me. She has blessed my life in more ways than I can imagine and I count myself the luckiest man alive to have her.seasavelaughlovemekiss
