Kano State to Enact Anti-Divorce Law



IRKED by rate of divorce in the state, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State, on Friday, June 5, said the state government would soon enact a law that would address increasing divorce in the state.

Ganduje made the assertion while meeting with Hisbah Guards, KAROTA, vigilante groups, Vehicle Inspection Officers and civil society organisations at Coronation Hall, Kano Government House.

Ganduje directed the state Hisbah Board to discuss the issue with Islamic scholars and other contemporary Islamic students with a view to advising government on how the law would be implemented in Islamic perspective. The governor, who described the increase in divorce rate in the state as worrisome, promised that government would take appropriate action to stop the menace.

He commended the effort of Hisbah Guards in institutionalising Islamic tenets in the state, assuring that his government would continue to support them to work effectively.
