Kano to debate monogamy law on 'poor men'

By: Ramjoe (M) |Time : April 04, 2017, 06:20:47 AM
The speaker of Nigeria's northern state of Kano has said that the public will be consulted on a bill that aims to ban poor men from marrying more than one wife.

Alhassan Rurum told BBC Hausa that Muslim religious leaders and scholars will also be consulted on defining who can be considered to be poor.

The controversial proposal was made by Muhammad Sanusi II, the Emir of Kano, to ensure that men have families that they are able to take care of.

Government should NOT get involved in this at all.
What concerns government with decision made by consenting adults?
What the Kano state government and legislators should focus on is the REAL problem of CHILD MARRIAGE.
If they avoid that, they should not encroach in adult decisions concerning marriage configurations.

This is unnecessary from the govt... Inasmuch as it sounds good for a man to take care of his family,I think there should be enabling environment where the man can provide for his family. The enabling environment is what govt should focus on.

Real issues are always neglected by our government and trivial stuffs that they should not be concerned about at all take center stage in their governance.


Things are shaping up and there's no way they can succeed in taking our minds off of the important things they ought to be doing instead.


Our voices will be heard. Nigeria will improve.
