Abuja - The Kano State has expressed concern at the breakdown of marriages in the region.
State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, said as such, his administration would enact a law that will address such incidents.
He stated this during a meeting with Hisbah Guards, Vigilante Groups, Vehicles Inspection Officers (VIOs) and Civil Society Organizations at Coronation Hall in Government House.
The governor 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 from an Islamic perspective.

Ganduje lamented the increase of divorce cases in the state as worrisome and noted that government would take appropriate action to stop the menace. The governor appreciated the effort of Hisbah Guards in institutionalising Islamic tenets in the state and assured that his government would continue supporting them to work effectively.
Commander General, Hisbah Guards, Malam Aminu Daurawa, said over the years, the board had reconciled 20000 disputes, remarried 4 900 widows and facilitated 2 300 converts to Islam.
This has been recorded in the four years of his leadership.
