Dauda in her petition, begged the court to dissolve her marriage adding that her husband has failed in his duties as a husband and father.

”Isiyaka abandoned his responsibility as a husband and a father, I pay the school fees for our children and cater to other necessities in our home.

“I do everything and I am tired of his behaviour, ” she said.

She begged the court to dissolve her marriage.

Her husband who also works in a construction company in Abuja, consented to his wife’s petition for divorce, adding that he had tried his best.
