Kano Conducts Mass Wedding For 1, 800 Couples


The Kano State Government on Friday conducted a mass wedding of 1,800 couples comprising widows, divorcees, and spinsters selected from across the 44 local government areas of the state.

A total of 3,600 men and women have tied the knot under the mass wedding scheme sponsored by the state government.

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, Leader of Kwankwasiyya, Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso, and other prominent personalities attended the wedding at the Emir’s palace.

Governor Yusuf said the event was a testament to the state’s dedication to promoting cultural traditions and social cohesion while providing couples with a memorable and cost-effective way to formalize their unions.

He said on Saturday, the festivities will continue with wedding ceremonies and “Walima” (traditional feast) scheduled at the Government House.

He said the mass wedding initiative not only strengthened the bonds between couples but also underscored the commitment of Kano State to support its citizens and celebrate the institution of marriage.
