Alhassan Doguwa, the majority leader of the House of Representatives on Thursday, January 30, 2020, showed his fellow lawmakers that he is a powerful man. He proved his powerful both at home and on the floor of the house by bringing his four wives to the house of representatives.
While showing off to his colleague, Doguwa said he is a powerful Man because he deals with four women.
The law maker Doguwa/Tudun Wada Federal Constituency of Kano State said his wives have given him 27 children and he still desire to have more.
“Mr Speaker, I will let you know that with me today, here are my four respected wives. (He called on the women to rise) Mr Speaker and Honourable members, I have asked them to rise to respect the house on behalf of my family. And one other reason is to let you know that when members call me a powerful man, I am not only powerful on the floor of the house, I am also powerful at home because I deal with four wives. These four wives have produced 27 children for me and I’m still counting,” he said
The law maker’s comment came in few days after the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi 11, said poverty and backwardness in the north is caused by the culture of marrying many wives and giving birth to many children.
The Emir also argued that the region will continue to move backward if its people do not change the culture.
