Kano Hisbah To Organize Mass Wedding For 50 Journalists

Kano State Hisbah Board has extended a mass wedding invitation to 50 journalists as part of its plan for the second batch of the program.

The Commander General, Sheikh Aminu Daurawa stated this while briefing newsmen on the upcoming mass wedding in the state.

He said 50 slots have been allocated for journalists to have their loved ones participate if they desire.

According to him, “following the success of the last mass wedding, which saw about 1,800 couples married off, the board decided to extend the invitation to interested members of professional groups and trade unions.”

He said the board would also include legal practitioners and health workers in the next batch of the exercise.

Sheikh Daurawa said the essence of the mass wedding program was to entrench moral values in society and reduce immorality among young men and women.

Daurawa said the initiative aims to extend the programme’s benefits to professional groups, including members of the media.

Speaking with journalists on Wednesday, Sheikh Daurawa highlighted the success of the previous batch of mass weddings where 1,800 marriages were consummated.

In the light of this success, the Hisbah chief said the board decided to expand the programme to include interested members of various professional fields such as journalism, law, and healthcare.

In addition to the expanded mass wedding programme, Sheikh Daurawa disclosed the establishment of the Hisbah Academy in collaboration with local institutions such as Yusuf Maitama Sule University, Kano (YUMSUK), Aminu Kano College of Islamic Legal Studies, Sa’adatu Rimi University of Education, and Bayero University, Kano (BUK).
