Old believes die hard..

Is it a lack of enlightenment, or why do parents in Nigeria get so involved in the marriage process of their children?

It is one thing for a parent to approve or disapprove of their child's suitor, but quite another to basically dictate who to marry, particularly when it comes to inter-tribal marriages.

Dowry is so high in some traditions, some men can't afford to get married. It's like selling one's child.

A lot of parents won't approve of their child getting married to somebody of another Nigerian tribe, let alone another race. I think Nigerians are among the most racist people in the world.

I don't think we're going to move forward as a nation, until every Nigerian is as good as any other to all of us.
