97% of Pulse Nigeria Poll voters do not think there is anything wrong in marrying someone from a tribe different from theirs.
A Pulse reader, Godspower Ezechukwu sent in a letter asking for advice on how to convince his Igbo parents to give their blessings for him to marry an Hausa lady.
Part of his letter reads:
"My problem started when I went for my youth service in Kaduna State. That was where I met and fell in love with Tabitha, a fellow corps member from Taraba State.
She is the kind of woman no man would hesitate to make his wife. She is humble, faithful, loving, God fearing and above all, has nice manners. We are so much in love and have agreed to get married but here lies my problem.
My father, a staunch Igbo man and a traditional chief, has refused to give us his blessings, vowing that I can only marry a non-Igbo over his dead body. The first time I took her home to meet my family, my father practically chased Tabitha out of our compound when he realised she was not an Igbo girl."
The poser for the day was:
And this is How Nigerians voted:
7% - Yes
93% - No
So how would you vote?
