The Emir dished out this advice while speaking during the distribution of some women empowerment items donated by Hajia Aisha Bello-Matawalle, wife of the state governor over the weekend.

“Civil servants on a salary of N15,000 a month marry more than one wife and end up raising families they cannot cater for.

“It is this attitude that is responsible for increasing out-of-school children because the parents cannot shoulder the responsibility.

“People should marry in accordance with their earnings to ensure that their children have sound education and good moral background.”
