President Muhammadu Buhari's generosity to petty traders and artisans who profit from his empowerment program may have been a stroke of luck.

However, the free loan system is breaking families apart, as one man in Yola, Adamawa State, has taken his lovely wife to court, requesting an account of the #20,000 she got.

Babagida Jibrilla, the husband, has taken his wife, Aisha Mohammed, to Civil Area Court I in Yola, where he is requesting that the court order his wife to pay him the amount of #20,000 she earned in January, February, and March of this year.

He told the court that they had been dividing the money with his wife when she began to profit from Buhari's gesture, stating that if she gets stipends, she gives him half of it.

He said that his wife received #20,000 at the end of March but declined to report it or give him his share, and he asked the court to order her to give him the whole amount because the account was in his name.

The complainant also named his father-in-law, Mohammed Buba, as a second defendant in the lawsuit, alleging that his father-in-law had been refusing to allow his wife to return to their marital home for the past 16 months.

He told the court that his wife had been with her parents for the past 16 months for no apparent cause, and that all attempts to get her back to his house had failed miserably, and he begged the court to order his father-in-law to allow his wife to return to her matrimonial home.

The wife, on the other hand, disputed the responsibility, claiming that the money does not come under his name and that the stipends are provided to women to help them expand their businesses, and that it is her portrait that is on the account, not his.

Aisha told the court that the union was established about 5 years earlier, but that she was unable to bear children.

The second claimant, for his part, vigorously denied declining to allow his daughter to return to her matrimonial home, claiming that the charge levied against him by the husband is false and that he is prepared to prove it to the court.

The judge, presided over by Honourable Musa A. Shanu, adjourned the case until April 8, 2021, after hearing all of the parties involved.
