Apparently, Nigerians want to preserve their valuable culture and in doing this, some traditional elders have started issuing traditional marriage certificates to couples who choose the indigenous style of tying the knot.
Nigerians are changing the status quo as they become the first African country, I stand to be corrected, to issue traditional marriage certificates to married couples.
Culture is dynamic and as the world keeps changing and developing, human beings are bound to change in terms of thinking and how they live their lives irrespectively of their cultural background.
We cannot tell the motive behind Nigerians issuing traditional marriage certificates to married couples but one thing is clear and it’s about making it attractive for single Nigerians who are preparing to marry do it the traditional way.
We can’t also tell if it has some legal backing or not but the bottom line is, some community elders in Nigeria have introduced traditional marriage certificates.
