Senator Kabir Marafa representing Zamfara central has offered Senate president Bukola Saraki a new wife while thanking him for approving an N10 billion intervention fund for Zamfara State.
While speaking on the floor of the Senate, Senator Kabir Marafa said there is room for another wife in Saraki’s house because its size “is grossly underutilized.”
“I have a mounting order from my constituents to thank you for the efforts we all collectively put in addressing the plight of the people of Zamfara state,” he said.
“Mr. President, I want to thank you specifically. A lady in my constituency said I should tell you specifically that she has never seen you hit the gavel the way you did yesterday and I should tell you that when you commence your sabbatical, that she has offered herself to marry you if you so wish.
“I told her to wait until we see facts and figures in the 2019 budget. With respect and apology to Madam at home but from where I come, you are allowed up to four wives. So madam should please keep space because anytime I sit at home and look at the size of the house, I feel it is grossly underutilized.” He said.
