The Emir of the state, Muhammadu Sanusi II, warned that any title holder found violating or beating their wives would “outrightly lose their title.”

“You should all come back to your senses and stop these barbaric acts because we will not allow this to continue in Kano. I have warned all district heads, village heads, ward heads and imams to also desist from the bad habit of beating their wives and whoever among them is reported to me to have beaten up his wife, would outrightly lose his title.”

Speaking on Sunday during a mass wedding of 1,520 couples sponsored by the Kano state government, the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, also added that he won’t be backing down from making laws against poor men seeking to marry more than one wife.

He backed up this decision by including that though the law was not meant to stop Muslims from marrying up to four wives, it regulates how a man should treat his wives and children according to the tenets of Islam.

He went on to add, “We are going meet on Wednesday this week to review the over 80 pages of the law and make the necessary adjustment before presenting it to the State House of Assembly for passage into law.

“Our people are facing serious challenges in their family affairs. We have heard series of complaints where a father forced his daughter to marry someone against her wish.”

“We have heard so many cases where people marry additional wives while they could not feed them well, clothe them well or give them good shelter even though they have the means to do so.”

“In this case, the proposed law provides that, a court of law would take something out of the man’s wealth to feed his family, give them shelter and clothes.”

“In the event the man makes any attempt to resist the court’s directives, then the law takes necessary action against him. If you know, your salary cannot take care of more than one wife, you should not get an additional wife.”

Those are the changes a leader should make to better the life of his people. It is stupid to base everything on religion when there is no support for it.

Religion has kill many people in the country. They read YOU CAN MARRY AS MANY WIVES but failed to read the remaining part that say YOU MUST SATISFY THEM EQUALLY.
