Wife Of The Benue State Governor Appeals To Tiv People To Reduce Bride-Price So That Their Women Can Find Husbands

   

 

The wife of the Benue State Governor, Mrs. Eunice Ortom, has said that Tiv women are unable to find husbands because of the high bride price requested from their men.

NAN reported that she pleaded with Tiv authorities to re-evaluate bride-prices in Tiv land, so that young men can also get married on time.

“Such high demands discourage many bachelors from even attempting to get married; the result is that many young girls cannot find husbands. Such charges are imported; our traditional rulers should discard them.”

According to her, many young men now prefer to elope with their partners due to the huge monetary demands.

She also advised parents against selling their daughters especially since the relationship between in-laws remains long after such marriage rites.
