At least 4,395 couple have registered with Kano state Hisba board to take part in a mass wedding sponsored by the government.
More than 3,000 couples registered in Hisba offices across 41 local government areas, after registration opened on August 8.
A further 1,278 couples registered at the Hisba headquarters in Kano city.
The numbers could rise when three remaining local governments send in their prospective couples.
Dr Abba Sufi, the Director-General of the Hisba board, said, “The government is committed to the programme hence its decision to continue with the programme.
“The registration is still open to all interested persons as the exercise is still ongoing,” Sufi said.
