Sokoto State Governor, Aliyu Wamakko, has approved N30 million for a planned mass wedding in the state.
Commissioner for Youth and Social Welfare, Alhaji Zubairu Yaro Goronyo, made this known

Sunday [Nov. 24], at the final screening of the applicants held at the Waziri Junaidu History Bureau.

He stated that no date has been fixed yet for the wedding, but assured that it would take place either before the end of this month or in the first week of December. According to him, a total of 240 persons would be screened, comprising 120 males and 120 females.
Goronyo said the screening was very important in order to ascertain the present status of the applicants whether dead or no longer interested as a result of contracting another marriage.
The commissioner explained that the money was meant for the payment of dowries which were pegged at N20,000 while another N20,000 would be given to each groom as take-off grant. He said this includes buying of bedding materials, a set of furniture, two wrappers for each of the brides, as well as 10 yards of brocade for each of the grooms.
The commissioner revealed that this was a pilot scheme and if it turned out to be successful, it would be organided after every quarter of the year.
One of the short-listed candidates, Zainab Umar, a 20-year old widow, expressed gratitude to God and the state government for coming to their aid. She said the programme would go a long way in reducing social vices, such as adultery and fornication.
