Kano state government weds 1,800 couples in colourful ceremony

The Kano State Government has conducted a mass wedding for 3,600 men and women across the 44 local government areas of the state.

According to NAN, the wedding Fatihah was conducted at the palace of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Bayero, on Friday, October 13, 2023.
The beneficiaries were mainly young girls and boys, widows, divorcees, and spinsters.

The ceremony was attended by Gov Abba Yusuf, the leader of Kwankwasiyya, Dr Rabiu Kwankwaso, government officials, and religious leaders.

The Emir of Kano was represented by Alhaji Yusuf Nabahani, the Madakin Kano.

Gov Yusuf expressed the belief that the matrimonial extravaganza is a testament to the state’s dedication to promoting cultural traditions and social cohesion by providing couples with a memorable and cost-effective way to formalise their unions.

“The event reflects the deep-rooted values and unity of the people in Kano State and highlights government’s dedication to preserving traditions while ensuring a bright future for its people,” he said.

Malam Musa Isyaku, a farmer from Tudun Wada Dankadai Local Government Area, lauded the political commitment demonstrated by Yusuf for making the event a reality.

“I have been planning this wedding for the last three years, but I keep postponing it due to a lack of funds,” he said.

Alhaji Abdulkadir Gezewa, whose three daughters and two boys, were among the beneficiaries, commended the governor for the release of funds for the purchase of furniture and other necessary items needed for the conduct of the exercise.

“We will continue to pray for the success of Governor Yusuf’s administration for identifying with the rural dwellers,” he said.
