Girls call me to help them get married- businessman

Mohammed  Jacob, a business man who married off 50 girls in Yobe on Sunday said girls have incessantly called him to help them get married.

He said this at the marriage ceremony of the newlyweds  according to a report by daily trust.

It was learnt that barely a month ago, Jacob married off 40 internally displaced girls.

The businessman said, “I have received endless calls from girls to help them get married after he married off the first batch few months ago.”

The wedding, reports that the ceremony was held under the guardianship of Emir of Gashua, Alhaji Abubakar Umar Sulaiman, at his palace mosque in Gashua

The Emir said all the couples had undergone genotype, HIV, and pregnancy tests.

He said the brides and grooms had been screened religiously to avert any chance that would invalidate their marriages.

He noted, “We went to the extent of training these girls in different trades to make them self-reliant. That is why we came up with a council that would settle dispute between the couples, if any, because we would not tolerate divorce until necessary.”

He thanked the businessman for relieving the parents of a ‘huge’ burden, while appealing to the well-to-do to extend similar gesture.

“Because these girls are due for marriage, they have suitors, but the parents have no money. This man did all the necessary things needed,” he said.
