My Wife Is Unfaithful, Goes Out With Different Men – Husband Tells Court

A Mararaba Upper Area Court, Nasarawa State, on Friday dissolved the 16-year -old marriage between Samson Apaila, and his wife, Grace, for infidelity and troublesome behaviour.

The judge, Ibrahim Shakarau, dissolved the marriage in the interest of peace, saying that the parties have ceased to be husband and wife henceforth, NAN reports.

“The parties are to maintain peace all the time, any violation of the order of this court will amount to contempt and of course with grave consequences.

“Also the parties should collect their divorce certificate from the registrar’s office,’’ he ordered.

Shakarau granted the petitioner custody of the three children produced by the 16-year-old marriage.

Apaila had told the court that he was married to the respondent since 2003, according to the native law and customs of Igala people, while the union produced three children.

“She is a very troublesome woman. She quarrels, nags and fights me at every slight provocation or without reason.

“She is an unfaithful wife, as she cannot stay at home and look after the children, but goes out with other men and even threatens to kill me whenever I raise the matter.

“Please, let this honourable court separate us, there is no longer love in the union and nothing can bring us together again,” Apaila told the court.

The petitioner also pleaded with the court to grant him the custody of two of the three children, while the last one, who is about five years old remain with the respondent, while he still takes responsibility.

The respondent who was in court, did not object to the separation, but asked the court to grant the petitioner’s request and to also grant him custody of the third child as well.

Joel Ajayi

Cutting red tapes which slow business transactions and improving the security of mining operations are among fresh commitments unfolded by Nigeria’s Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Dr. Oladele Alake at the Mines & Money Conference which opened in London, United Kingdom on Tuesday.

Addressing global stakeholders in the mining industry, Alake, in the 15-minute speech pitched for more investment in Nigeria listing unique advantages such as lower production cost due to surface mining and billions of dollar untapped minerals.
He quoted recent reports by audit firm KPMG which reported that mining’s contribution to Nigeria’s GDP rose from 0.3 percent to 0.85 percent last year, indicating 0.63 percent year on year growth.

His words: “The country’s geological bounty encompasses over 44 distinct mineral types, found in exploitable quantities across more than 500 locations. Recently, recognizing the evolving global landscape and in response to emerging trends, Lithium has been included as a crucial strategic mineral of global consequence.”

Dr. Alake said the administration of President Bola Tinubu has embarked on reforms to boost investment by streamlining procedures and reducing hurdles to attract foreign investors.

Showcasing recent progress in creating conditions for solid minerals development, Dr. Alake highlighted fresh data revealed by the Airborne Geophysical Survey, memorandum of understanding with German firm Geoscan to gather more data on solid minerals across the country and access to finance through a new funding facility launched by the Africa Finance Corporation and the Solid Minerals Development Fund.

The minister reminded the global mining community of the Federal Government ‘s policies on how mining operations must benefit the communities and lead to processing instead of wholesale export of raw minerals.

“ Nigeria is currently emphasizing Solid Minerals Beneficiation and Value-Addition as a panacea for quick and sustainable growth of the Mining Industry…By adding value to our raw materials, we not only create higher value products but also generate employment opportunities for our teeming youth and increase the sector’s overall profitability and contribution to the nation’s GDP”, he said
Dr. Alake urged investors to support socio-economic development of the communities where they mine to make mining mutually beneficial.

Citing the recent launch of the revised guidelines for Community Development Agreement which provides for social amenities, educational support, health and safety environmental facilities.
