Sokoto To Spend N30million To Wed 100 Couples For Free

Mass wedding in Kano

The Sokoto State Government says it has set aside N30 million for the organisation of the wedding of 100 couples in the area.
NAN reports that the mass wedding is being coordinated by the State Sunnah Mediation Council and would be conducted before the commencement of Ramadan in June.
He said the council would pay the bride prices of all the female partners – N30,000 for spinsters and N20,000 for divorcees.

“The brides will also be trained in some skills like knitting, sewing, pomade and detergents making, among others.
“The brides will also be assisted with working tools and capital,” Kofar-Rini, explained.

The chairman of the Council further said that each couple would receive N75,000 to enable it to settle down properly to marital life.
He said all the intending couples would be verified by the ward, village and district heads of their respective areas of residence before the final approval of the council.
He recalled that the state government spent N30 million in the organisation of the first phase of mass wedding of 125 couples in Jan. 2014.
According to him, 15 of the 125 couples have since been divorced.

“The remaining 110 couples are still married and have produced 45 children, with the latest being twins, born on March 24.
“The council has set up a reconciliation committee, which routinely visits the couples to help resolve all misunderstandings,”
