Former Ogun State governor Otunba Gbenga Daniel’s son, Debola Irede Daniel, has just proposed to his girlfriend, Tasha in a very romantic way.
He took to his Instagram page to post photos from the proposal and also announced that they will be getting married soon.
The groom-to-be who also thanked his friends and family for helping him plan the event, recently bagged his masters in mechanical engineering from the University College London.
“ENGAGEMENT! So last night I asked my best friend and my closest confidant to spend the rest of her life with me and she said YES!“@tash_loves I love you more than words can ever describe. You’ve shown me what love is and it’ll be an honour to spend the rest of my life with you.“I’m getting married! Massive thank you to @ben__ben_ @tolaolu @kenny.d for helping me plan such a beautiful evening. Also thank you to @gtdaguitarman and @wanri_simpson. You guys are the best.”
Debola bagged a Masters Degree with distinction in Mechanical Engineering from the University College London. After the successful feat, he posted a very touching note about his condition and how he has been able to cope with it.
“I was born into a very comfortable home, with both amazing parents
and without a disability. However, when I turned 5, I was diagnosed with
paraplegia- a rare condition with no medical clarity.
I became confined to a
wheelchair. Growing up in Nigeria, I unconsciously associated disability to
poverty and crime due to amputated beggars on the streets mostly as a result of
Sharia Law practised in the North.
This was the general opinion of most
Nigerians in my social circle as a child. Having myself become physically
challenged, I was exposed to the stigma and assumptions that came with being
‘disabled’. All of a sudden, I was looked at with pity, with judgement and
sometimes with resentment by my fellow countrymen.
As I became an adult, I began to realise
that the onus was on me to make something of myself and create my life and
future the way I envision it. My future was, and would always be in my own
hands.” He wrote
