Speaking to newsmen, the Director General of the Kano State Hisbah Board, Alhaji Abba Sufi said Christians who signified interest were joined together in their various churches and the requirements for their celebration was provided for by the state government.

The first mass wedding was conducted with a total of 100 couple, the second 250 couple and the third edition was a thousand couple. See more photos after the cut...

It is a welcome development.At least it would reduce cases of rape and distortion of families lineage which arises as a result of not meeting the requirements of a proper marriage before intimate relations takes place.

Read elsewhere that some of the women are former prostitutes whose husbands aren't told about their previous work. That's something I'd want to know. Nothing beats old school courtship. More ops for background checks.

Why can't they spend and focus more on developmental and economically beneficial programs? Gov't aint gat no business in emotional matters. If the gov't really wanna conduct a mass wedding, let it be done formally through the court. It is more binding and in addition, it saves resources and time. This will only add to the tons of responsibilities on ground.

HOW DOES THIS SOLVE ANYTHING, INSTEAD OF THESE NOTHERN LEADERS TO EMPOWER THEIR CITIZENS THEY WASTE TIME ON BACKWARD THINGS LIKE THIS. THIS PEOPLE WILL GO ON TO PRODUCE NUMEROUS CHILDREN THEY CANNOT TAKE CARE OF, THEY WILL NOW BECOME BEGGARS AND TERRORISTS. NO WONDER THERE IS SO MUCH ILLITERACY AND POVERTY IN THE NORTH. WHEN THE LEADERS HAVE MISPLACED PRIORITIES..SMH
