A Deputy Governor in Zamfara State in Nigerian, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala Muhammad, has promised to sponsor the marriage ceremony of 100 vulnerable couples across the state.
The rationale to sponsor the would-be couples, according to the governor, was part of his desire to reduce the number of widows and divorced women in the state.
Malam Ibrahim Wakkala made the disclosure Sunday evening at the graduation ceremony of 200 women trained on various empowerment skills.
He explained that already a process had been instituted to ensure that the right category of people are selected as the beneficiaries.
“We noticed that many of them want to marry but they don’t have financial support to so. 100 indigent males and 100 females would be selected across the 14 local government areas of the state and all what is needed for wedding will be provided by me,” he assures.
