Photos: Kano State Govt spends N200 million on mass wedding for 1,520 couples

The wedding which took place on Sunday, February 26th, was the first under Governor Umar Ganduje's administration.

At least 3,000 couples were screened before 1,520 were selected as first batch of the exercise, said the governor.


Wedding will be sponsored for the remaining couples in future, he added.
"We decided to make it in batches so that we will do everything diligently," he assured.
 Kano government paid N20,000 in dowry for each bride and donated to each couple room furniture set and other items.
Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi commended Kano state government for sponsoring the mass wedding, saying the gesture would help less privileged.
Sanusi assured that the emirate council would continue to support any government's programme that would better up the lives of people of Kano.
Commander General of the Kano State Hisbah Board, Sheikh Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa, said according to the agreement entered between government and the grooms, nobody would divorce his wife without permission of Hisbah board.
The state Commissioner for Local Government, Murtala Sule Garo, said about N200m was spent for the mass wedding programme, with couples from each of the Kano’s 44 local government areas, unlike in previous mass weddings.
Garo explained that, government decentralized the programme with a view to empowering local carpenters who were contracted to make the funiture for the brides.

This is another proof of the Islamization of the country. Are there no less privileged Christians in Kano? They are spending the state money only on Muslims, yet they make everybody pay tax. Rubbish!!!

Spending 200 million on mass wedding is stupidity. What sense those it make spending such amount of money on mass wedding instead of creating job. They just gave them fish instead of teaching them how to fish. My humble opinion .

Great Idea. God bless them. Marriage is a noble vocation but unfortunately many young men cannot afford the institution of marriage and instead these lovely girls would have been married off to aged men as 3rd 4th wives. In the case of Christian girls, they roam around going from one sugar daddy to another while waiting for their "boyfriend" to come up with funds for traditional marriage.

I wish my fellow Igbo Governors would do the same to assist the able bodied young men who cannot afford bride price and traditional marriage expenses talk less set up a new home. They will be able to support their wives of course, they just cannot find the money to provide adequate dowry to the in-law and of course no one will give their daughter free of charge... I wouldn't.
