The Kano State Hisba Board on Tuesday said it had commenced preparations for the mass wedding of another batch of 2,000 widows and divorcees in the state.

The Director-General of the Board, Dr Abba Sufi, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano.

Sufi said the preparations followed recent directive by Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje to the Board to start arrangement for the wedding of another batch of 2,000 couples.

“The governor recently directed us to start preparations for the wedding of another set of widows and divorcees.

“So, the Board has since commenced preparations for the event, expected to take place before the end of the year.’’

The director-general said the Board intended to introduce some innovations to improve on its programmes with a view to addressing other challenges.

He said the present administration was determined to sustain the programme in view of its benefits to the society.

“The aim of the programme is to check prostitution and other vices in the society, hence the decision of government to sustain it,’’ Sufi said.

He urged prospective couples to cooperate with the Board in order to ensure the success of the programme.

It would be recalled that no fewer than 5,000 couples had so far benefitted from the government- sponsored mass wedding programme introduced by former Gov. Rabi’u Kwankwaso in May 2012.

It has always been part of their agenda. The bottom line is they want to populate the north more. Cos am very sure the offspring of these marriages will take part in 2019 election.
