Kano weds 1,520 divorcees



The Kano State Government on Sunday conducted a mass wedding for 1,520 divorcees and widows at the Kano Central mosque.

The mass wedding, sponsored by the state government was held simultaneously in different mosques across the 44 local government areas of the state.



Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, who attended the event at the Government House Coronation Hall reminded the couples that marriage required endurance, perseverance, patience and understanding.

He explained that the rationale behind the mass wedding was to halt the rampant divorce cases in the state.

The state Commissioner for Information, Mallam Mohammad Garba, who supervised the mass wedding in Bukure Local Government Area disclosed that it was sponsored by the state government to marry off “the city’s rising number of widowed and divorced community.”

He said, “The mass wedding was to ease the hardship being encountered by the less-privileged in the society, who are in dire need of marriage, which indicated the willingness of the state government to improve the quality of lives of the citizenry.”

Garba gave N20,000 to each of the representatives of the grooms as dowry while the state government provided  the couples with free  furniture and other essential household items.

In his remark, the Hisbah Commander, Sheikh Aminu Daurawa, said the couples underwent medical screening to determine their health status.

Daurawa reminded the couples that any of them contemplating divorce must report to the Hisbah Board before approvals would be granted.

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
