Kabiru Marafa , a senator for Zamfara Central has offered another wife to Senate President Bukola Saraki in appreciation for the approval of the N10 billion intervention funds for Zamfara State.
The Zamfara lawmaker made the offer on the floor of the Senate on Thursday, April 11 as he thanked his colleagues for the approval of the N10 billion intervention funds for Zamfara, following the extremely heightened insecurity in the state, The Cable reports.
He said: “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”.
“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 underutilised.”
Kabiru also thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for intervening in his state’s security situation.
