  1. A cousin of mine got married at 17years now she is 47yrs now. She has a doctor, an engineer and the rest yet to finish. Anybody can marry at whatever age she chooses to. Is by choice.

    • What is the age difference of that your cousin and the husband and was your cousin in love with the husband. The problem here is consent, if the girl was not forced into it then that’s okay since she is 18yrs already but if she was forced then that’s too bad.

    • Madam you wey dey talk you fit give out your own daugther, make una no dey deceive una self… mitchewwwww, stupid people with their useless tradition and religion

  2. So? D tradition permits it i see nothing strange with dat.u shd search 4 gossip abt vacancies it will b of more help. Or is d fourth wife giving jobs? Or is her age ur fever?

  3. Why I you people hammering so much on that age issue. Can’t 18 years got married. Is of a taboo. I beg u should get a life. If as far she comfortable then what else. If is about her education, she can further even when bearing kids.

  7. Jst one tin I lyk abt Islam pple is dt,no matter aw rich dey r in life,dre topmost nd most xpensv wears are native,dey cherish it nd wear dem decently..

  8. Education has nothing to do with marriage…sanusi is well schooled.religion is the bone of contention. Well I humbly think the girl should have been mature enough to know what she wants.cos at 18 she’s an adult but not yet naive about emotional and rational decisions she would only depend on parental guidance and for the fact that he’s rich…. its settled

  9. No big deal,go and check hw many Alaafin of Oyo got for himself and he is looking good with his wives young enough to be his grandchildren. Age has nothing to do with marriage.

  10. If 18years is a taboo to get married, then you condemning it can wait to be 40yrs before u get married. Then age will be tell on you then you will be looking for deliverance and miracle here and there. The rest is history. And at that time you and life will be rocking each other. Good luck

  11. And u tell me such pple stil hv dia conscience living. D future of our young future great ladies is been marred by d day by some greedy irrational minds dat call demselves movers n shackers of d society. Posterity will neva 4give u.

  12. 18yrs is OK for marriage but with a 54yrs old man is a different scenario. Left for the young lady,she would prefer a younger man but Islam don’t permit you to make decision in matters like this.A well schooled Lamido with 3 wives going for the Fourth.A shame and it tell what sort of religion they have.Shame on all who see nothing wrong in this

    • Don’t talk about religion,remember a 28 year-old Ugandan musician GUVNOR ACE married a 68 year old Sweden woman MONA LISA.are these people Moslem? So far the girl was not forced to marriage, she is eighteen years already, she can decide on her own.

  13. This is greed and selfishness. Are the women not having the same nature of private parts? abi one is more heavenly? a personality of such nature.

  14. He too has brought out his daughters (through this family picture) for your viewing and marriage by any interested Nigerian. Lol!
