A 44-year-old man, Iliasu Salami, on Thursday in Iseyin, Oyo State, lost his five-year-old marriage to irreconcilable political differences between him and his estranged wife, Rashidat.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Salami had approached the Iseyin Customary Court, seeking the dissolution of the marriage over allegations of disobedience.

He told the court that his wife had no regard for him, adding that his opinions did not count in their affairs.

 

He said his wife joined a different political party against his instruction and wish.

Salami, however, did not state his or ex-wife’s party.

“All efforts to resolve the issue by both families failed,” Salami said, and pleaded with the court to terminate the marriage.

The President of the customary court, Chief Adelodun Oyegbenle, said, “Rashidat’s refusal to show up in court after several summons and the evidences tendered by the husband on the political differences between them are enough to show that no love is lost between the couple.

“It is unfortunate that the defendant (Rashidat) did not attend any of the court proceedings despite court summons. This court hereby dissolves the five-year-old union.”

Oyegbenle ordered Salami to pay N10,000 monthly upkeep allowance for the two children of the failed marriage.
