The Sokoto State Government says it will conduct a mass wedding for 100 couples in the next one month.

The state Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Alhaji Mani Katami, who disclosed this to newsmen yesterday in Sokoto, said that the government will spend N32 million on the exercise.

According to him, “we are expecting the report of the main committee set up for the purpose of planning the mass wedding. The main committee is overseeing the activities of other sub-committees such as those on security and medical screening.

“Afterward, we would organise a one-week training on skills acquisition for the would-be couples.”

The commissioner said that the state government would pay the bride price of all the 100 would-be brides.

In the same vein, each of the brides would be given bridal materials such as beds, mattresses, bedding and other house-hold items. Each of the brides and grooms would also be given seed capital to enable them to start small scale businesses.”
