    Kano state does this every year. From the caption, “Grooms family gets N20K each as Dowry”, so the government pays the men to marry these women. Do the men chose their brides or the brides are distributed to the grooms by the government? Will this not make the men lazy? instead of them to work hard to make money to marry and support a family they will wait for when their government will “dash” them wife and money. If the government gives them wives and money, will the same government support them when they start having babies? is this not part of the reasons for the almagiris, as correctly noted by Fifelomo?
