Aminu Daurawa, Kano state commandant of Hisbah, a religious police outfit, says the position of God on marriage has been stated in the Quran and any means of regulation would be seen as an act of “infringement”.

Reacting to the proposal of Muhammad Sanusi, emir of Kano to outlaw forced marriages and regulate polygamy, Daurawa said the criteria for marrying another wife as contained in the Quran should be strictly followed.

He advised the monarch to focus on enlightening the people on the intricacies of polygamy.

Sanusi disclosed his plans on polygamy at a memorial of a Nigerian diplomat on Sunday.

But in a interview with the BBC Hausa service on Friday, Daurawa said the subject matter should be put in the curriculum of secondary school for young ones to know what is best for them.

“Allah position on marriage is sacrosanct as stated in the Holy Quran and any infringement is nullity,” Daurawa said.

“What needs to be done is not enactment of a law that would bar the poor from marrying more than one wife but rather enlightenment on the intricacies of polygamy.

“There about 13 criteria to be followed before one qualifies to marry a second wife and this include been just and caring to the wife as been enshrined in the Holy Quran should be strictly followed.”
