Kudirat said that when her husband wooed her, she wondered how they would cope, seeing that they are both physically limited.

She stated that after three other men disappointed her, she accepted him and resigned to fate.

He is a great provider

Kudirat said despite all, she has never for once regretted marrying Oseni. The woman stated that he has been a good provider to her and their kids despite the fact that she is not working.

According to her, if she had married the person who could use his legs, she may not have enjoyed marriage as much as she is doing now.

Oseni has never begged

Oseni said that he is satisfied with the work he does and that is why he does not go around begging.

Kudirat revealed that in the seven years that they have been married, he has never been so frustrated to the level of resorting to begging for alms.
