He pledged to give the board the required attention and support it deserves.

The Commander General of Hisbah Board, Sheikh Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa, lauded the government’s effort on the planned sponsored wedding of 1,800 couples, describing it as timely.

He added that the scheme would assist people during the current hardship and curb the menace of sexual abuse.
