delayed marriage

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Khadija told the court that she had a suitor, who was willing to marry her, but her father refused to give his consent.
She said, “the man I want to marry has made several attempts to meet my father to discuss the wedding plans, but he always avoided him.
“The only reason he gave me was that the man I want to marry is not Fulani, which is not satisfactory to me”.
She pleaded with the court to order her father to allow her to get married to the suitor, whose name she gave as Abdulhamidu.
The respondent, Bassa, told the court that the allegations of his daughter were true.
He said, “I have always avoided Abdulhamidu because I am against his choice as a suitor. I have warned my daughter that marriage is not a child’s play. How can she get married to a man whose root and origin are not known to us”?
The judge Abdullahi Baba adjourned the matter till May 29.
