"All these talks bother on what my religion permits me to do or not. Everything required of me as a Muslim is stipulated in the Quran, so I try to live by the tenets of my religion. Some people don’t even care about the existence of God which is okay with them, but so long as I have professed to be a Muslim, I will live by the tenets of the religion until I die.
And in December this year God willing, I will give out another of my 16-year-old daughter in marriage again. And nobody on earth can stop that marriage by the grace of God. Her name is Hafsat, she is currently a student in Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria. The potential husband is in the university in Cairo. As soon as it is December, the marriage will take place. I have not broken any law and all I have done is guided by Islamic injunctions which are fully recognized by the Nigerian Constitution. I give out my daughters in marriage when they get husband. For example, if my fourth daughter, who is 14 now, gets a husband, I will gladly offer her to him. You see, nobody can dictate to me how I run my family or how I give my daughters out in marriage. People should mind their business."
