    nawa oh. the most annoying part of this is that, all the chiefs and umuads were not there when our parent were trying so hard to train us. all they do is just sit and talk. God will help us.

    It’s not true, it depends on the state . Imo state list is expensive. It’s not so in my place. My sisters bride price was #100. And the things they brought cost about 30k.
