Metro Borno Ladies Condemn Emir Sanusi's One-wife-for-the-poor Law



Some women in Borno state think Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi's proposal of one-wife-for-the-poor is out of place.

Miss Maryam Bala, a spinster, said marriage would always be destined by God and not by human plans.

She said that Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) was once quoted as urging his people to “marry and have children so I can be proud of you”.

“The Emir might not be wrong but yet his statement is demoralizing for women who have yet to meet their future partners.

“There are many women than men in the world, who is going to marry them?” she queried.

Other women lauded the idea, saying it will be a step in the right direction.

Mrs Maimuna Garba, a housewife, urged “all married northern women” to “stand behind the Emir on his polygamy stance”.

“Whatever you say or refer to in the Holy Qur’an they (men) will not listen to you; they always choose what sweets them and abandon the concrete reality of it,” she said.
