Photo: Businessman pays for the wedding of 50 girls in Yobe

A businessman in Yobe state, Mohammed Yakubu Jacob, has married off 50 young girls to their prospective suitors in Yobe state. The marriage ceremony took place in Gashua town in the state yesterday May 21st.

According to reports, Jacob organized the wedding for the girls who are too poor to organize a wedding themselves. Most of the girls were children of Internally Displaced Parents.


This isn't the first time Jacob would be organizing a wedding in this manner. Sometime in April, he organized a wedding for 40 girls with poor suitors.

On why he organized the recent wedding,the businessman said he got inundated by calls from the girls after they found out about the previous weddings he organized for other people.
"These girls will call me crying for help that their parents have no means to marry them off. I know how it feels for a father to have a grown up daughter that is due for marriage but he does not have money to do that. Some of the girls even lost their parents and I don’t want their dream to remain unfulfilled,” he said

The only dream you can fulfill for them is to marry them off?
They don't dream of going to schools?
They don't dream of being business owners?
Neither do they dream of being professionals?
Issa good thing.

the money he spent on the wedding should have been used to set up a small cottage business for them like

Na wa o, he can't use that money to pay for their education.
When you educate a woman you educate the society.
Marriage at their young ages just keeps them in the vicious circle of ignorance and poverty which is what the bourgeois capitalist class prefers.

Like seriously I don't know, the only thing they think of and gives them fulfilment is marriage, they don't want to grow economically at all, they are even more scared of their women being independent. Lord Luggard, Lord Luggard, I hope he's turning in his grave for the injustice he did with that useless amalgamation.

Married off as 3rd and 4th wivies to less privileged men. The rich keep suppressing them, wants them to always depend on them (rich). Cant Biz-rich-man show them a better way. Empower them so tgat when they have their kids, they will be able to sponsor their married.

They keep marginalizing their people. Marrying off young girls, this is way their men reap toddlers.....

God please them from this captivity IJN Amen.
