8000 Women Protest Over Scarcity Of Husbands In Zamfara

No fewer than 8,000 women on Thursday (Sept 26) matched to the Zamfara Hisbah Commission, seeking the state government’s assistance to enable them to get married.
Led by the Chairperson of the Zamfara Widows Association, Hajiya Suwaiba Isa, and the patron, Alhaji Sa’idu Goshe, the women said they were not living a normal life and needed husbands to become whole.
“Many of us cannot afford two meals in a day because there are no men to support us,” they said.
The patron said the association had over 8,000 women, comprising 5,380 divorcees, 2,200 widows, 1,200 orphans and 80 others, whom he said, were looking for men to marry.
He said the women also needed assistance to purchase household items such as beds, mattresses and other basic necessities needed to move to their husbands’ houses.
Goshe appealed to the commission to assist the association in screening suitors for the women.
He said the screening would determine the suitors’ health status, source of livelihood and ability to maintain a family.
