Following the success of the traditional wedding, the family is now planning a lavish white wedding in Dubai.

But as the family revels in this celebration mood, tongues have continued to wag over the extravagance of the wedding. Citizenry have condemned the extravagant spending amid Oyo’s financial crisis. Many people believe that with the debt Oyo State owes with reference to that of WAEC debt and some others, putting up a grandiose wedding should be secondary.
