Sanusi to stop underprivileged men from polygamy

Written by  Feb 20, 2017

The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, says he intends to propose a law, which would stop poor men in the emirate from marrying more than one wife.
Sanusi made this disclosure in Abuja at the 50th anniversary of the death of a former Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana Ambasador Isa Wali, who died on active duty on February 19, 1967.

The royal father said he had been able to establish a connection between polygamy, poverty and terrorism.
Sanusi said he would ensure that the Kano State Government passes the law as a way of immortalizing the late Wali who was one of the first northern elements to advocate gender equality.
The Emir revealed that a sub-committee of scholars in the palace is finalizing the final sections of a family law that the emirate intend to introduce to address some of issues relating to marriage, domestic violence, divorce among others.
