So Yesterday People Were Quick To Be Saying Why Did Medikal Gift A Car To His Lovely Wife Fella Makafui Whilst The Car Registration Is Still In His Name. Seriously, Some People Are Always Just In A Hurry To Express Their Ignorance Which Clearly Shows Their Misunderstanding On Vehicle Registration Or Change Of Vehicle Processes.
So those who watched the video before Medikal Gifted The Car To Fellaprecious Makafui would clearly are that it was a surprise to his wife. Meaning, The Purchase / Documentation / Handing Over Was All New To His Wife That Instance. The Registration Details On The Card Was A Proof Of Ownership Of The Benz By Medikal Which Must be Handed Over To The New Owner. It happens when you are handing over a Car To Any one To Show The Previous Owner of the Car.
Then subsequently on a later day The Previous Owner Medikal Takes 2 Passport Pictures + a PhotoCopy of His National ID to the DVLA and sign the Form C + the name of the new owner for the official change in ownership after he has handed over the Surprise ( Car ) To his wife… Even In Any Case Do You know that whether the name or owner remains Medikal or Fella by Law In Mensah v Mensah (1998) stated that the sharing of spousal property should no longer be dependent on the substantial contribution principle and that property acquired during marriage is a joint property, and even if the spouses did not make any contribution the spouse is entitled to an equal share in the said property.
The effect of the decision was that in so far as the property was acquired during marriage, the spouse holding the legal title holds the property in a resulting trust in favour of both spouses.
Any property acquired during marriage by a husband with him holding legal documentations, he’s only holding it in trust of his wife… Being it traditional or western wedding … Article 11 ( 1992 Constitution) recognizes customary laws as part of our laws strictly … CONGRATULATIONS TO MY TALENT FELLA MAKAFUI.. Precious you can decide not to demand the change of ownership being done today and you are the owner legally.
