Politics Emir Sanusi: Kano Emirate Working on Law to Curb Polygamy in Northern Nigeria



Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has condemned the disparity between men and women in Nigeria.

According to him, this act is a form of social injustice and should be addressed.

He added that the Kano Emirate Council was working on a set of laws that would prohibit many abusive treatments being meted on women in the north but regretted that the concept of men being superior to women had been unchallenged for a long time.

"We have all seen the consequences of men who can not maintain one wife marrying four, producing many children. A family law which would address the concerns is coming," he said.“It will outlaw forced marriage, make domestic violence illegal, set out modalities before you can marry a second wife.”

He spoke at the 50th anniversary of the demise of former Nigeria High Commissioner to Ghana, late Ambassador Isa Wali, organized by Isa Wali Empowerment Initiative, IWEI, at Shehu Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, yesterday.
