KANO—THE Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has said justice, fairness, respect and mutual understanding between couples are the only solutions to the problems bedevilling the institution of marriage in the country.

According to him, “a situation where an adult marry a girl and gruesomely maltreat her is untenable, even as it is unIslamic and must be condemned by all men of goodwill.

“We are not saying that a person has no right to marry any girl, but what we are saying is that a man must treat his wife or wives with respect and dignity in accordance with the religious injunctions.”
