The Divorce rate among newly weds in Nigeria and most especially the Federal Capital Territory Abuja is currently on the rise .
The Judge of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Magistrate Court, Sheikh Ayuba Abubakar, has expressed worry over the high rate of divorce among young couples in Nigeria, especially in the FCT.
Abubakar expressed his concern while speaking at the Annual Ramadan Lecture over the weekend.
Abubakar charged parents to take a lead role in their children’s decision in taking a life partner, saying this would help guild their choices and ensure the couple lives together thereafter. According to him, if a woman is pious, it gives you 70 per cent assurance that the choice of their children in marriage will not be bias.
