Muhammad Sanusi II, emir of Kano, has attributed poverty in the north to the predominant culture of marrying more than one wife.

The emir, who was represented by Usman Bugaji, said this while moderating a paper presentation session on ‘the role of universities in nation-building’ at the maiden convocation of the Federal University, Gusau, in Zamfara state, on Friday.

Sanusi said, “There are people who cannot afford to feed one wife but are ready to marry three wives and have more children than they can feed, talk less of paying for their school fees. ”

“The poverty level of the north is 80 percent, while in the south, the percentage is 20 percent, simply because of the culture of marrying many wives and producing many children who, at the end, are left on the streets to beg for what to eat.”

He noted also that divorce has played a less role in breeding criminals as divorced women find it difficult to raise the children alone.

He stressed also that, “The issues we have today such as drug abuse, Boko Haram, banditry and unemployment would be nothing compared to what we will be dealing with in the next 20 or 30. “
