A physically-challenged couple on Firday, put their challenges aside and tied the nuptial knot at a well-attended marriage ceremony in Ibadan.

The bridegroom, Paul Egbezokhai Kadiri who is a 52- year old and his 43-year old heartthrob, Grace Olufunke Omooba were joined together at Jesus kids, home for special people with disabilities, Iwo road, Ibadan.

Egbezokhai Kadiri who is deaf and dumb resides and works in Modakeke, Osun State, while his wife who suffers from Cerebral palsy is resident in Ibadan. Their condition makes it difficult for them to communicate effectively but they were joyous all through the event as they danced effortlessly.

Grace has been in the motherless home, Jesus kids for over ten years.

In his sermon entitled “God of the able and the hope of the disabled”, Pastor Ayotunde Adamolekun said the couple should ensure that they work together and respect each other.
