Kano State Government hosted a mass wedding for 3,600 men and women from the state’s 44 LGAs.

The Fatihah wedding took place on October 13, 2023, in the palace of Kano’s Emir, Alhaji Aminu Bayero, according to NAN.

Beneficiaries predominately consisted of young boys and girls, widows, divorcees, and single women.

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

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

Gov. Yusuf believes that the marriage spectacular demonstrates the state’s commitment to fostering cultural traditions and social cohesiveness by offering couples a memorable and cost-effective option to formalize their nuptials.

“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, praised Yusuf for his political tenacity in bringing about the event.

“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 sons were among those who benefited, praised the governor for releasing monies for the purchase of furniture and other goods required for the exercise.

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