Another user, Bash Anthony, commented on X (formerly Twitter): “After all the paparazzi and public display of affection, I have said it severally that the only way to redeem the union of marriage is intrafamily marriage, siblings should be allowed to marry each other.
“There is an existing family bond that cannot be broken, moreover, not marrying a sibling means marrying someone with divers and different cultural, religious and family upbringing, religiously, we all came from one man in the first place which is Adam.”
