Over 10,000 Muslim women who desire to be married and have not found the
man yet, have registered for a mass wedding ceremony in Kano State.
Islamic board, Hizba which have over the years arranged mass weddings in a bid to reduce the number of single women in the state, introduces the women to possible husbands and leaves the final decisions to them to make.
Most of the women who registered with the board say they have searched endlessly for a partner but couldn’t find while others say they have suitors but no money to do their wedding, therefore, turned to the board for help.
The Hizba board is yet to announce a date for the
wedding and since the mass weddings were introduced in Kano in 2012, a total of 5000 men and women have been married.
