1, 040 marriages conducted in 6 months – AMAC



fewer than 1,040 marriages have been conducted at the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) registry in the half of 2021

.

Mr Akinwumi Akintayo, Chief Marriage Registrar, AMAC, disclosed this in an interview with the News of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday, in Abuja.

Akintayo also said that in the same period, seven marriages at the ”edges of collapse”  were settled and reunited.

”Reconciling families  is a great on the part of the area council. We will continue to preach peace among families.

“Out of 10 cases, we received this year, we were able to settle seven and they have been reunited.

“We are working on the remaining three pending cases, though they are work in progress, I believe they will also be reunited,” he said.

He, however, called on couples to be patient and tolerant with each other to reduce the high rate of divorce in the country.

He also advised intending couples to look out for certain criteria they want from their spouses before deciding to get married.(NAN)
