Kano To Wed 2,000 Widows, Divorcees



Kano State Hisbah Board has said that the state government is making plans to commence arrangement for the wedding of another batch of 2,000 widows and divorcees in the state.
The board also refuted rumours that it had recorded about 4,000 divorce cases in the last one year, saying the mandate of the board only include settling disputes among couples, and not keeping record of divorcees.
The Director-General of the Hisbah Board, Abba Sufi, said the mass weeding, which was supposed to have taken place last year,  was suspended by Governor Abdulahi Ganduje due to the economic situation the country was passing through.
But the governor  promised to sustain the initiative in October last year when he directed the State Hisbah board to start arrangement for the wedding of another batch of 2,000 couples.
He noted that the program was introduced by the immediate past administration to check prostitution, divorce cases and other vices in the State,adding that the present government would not relent in continuing the programme,because it is touching the lives of the masses of the state.
