Reduce Bride Price so 'Young Boys' Can Marry - Former Anambra Governor Begs Igbo Parents

According to VANGUARD, Col. Robert Akonobi (rtd), former Military governor of old Anambra State, has pleaded with Igbo parents to reduce the bride price of their daughters so that ‘’our young boys can marry them.”

Akonobi made the plea last weekend during the traditional wedding ceremony of the daughter of a business mogul, Chief Louis Onwugbenu, Onyinye and her husband, Bosah Chukwuogo.

He said, ''To me, this topic (bride price) has been dealt with in the past by Ndigbo, who came out with a reduced bride price, to enable our young boys marry our young girls''.
