Why I Rejected 4 Wives Offered To Me For Returning N15m Forgotten By A Passenger – Keke Rider
A tricycle (keke) rider, one Auwalu Salisu, has rejected the four wives offered to him by the Kano State Matchmaking and Marriage Association (Mai Dalilin Aure) for returning N15million a passenger forgot in his tricycle.
22-year-old Salisu had returned the money to the Chadian owner, one Alhaji Ibrahim Barka, who visited Kano state to buy goods at Bata market.
Following the 22-year-old’s act of kindness and honesty, he has been getting recognition from government officials, individuals, and groups to honour him including Arewa Consultative Forum which gave him a cash prize.
Joining others to appreciate Salisu, the chairman of the Matchmaking Association, Mukhtar Inuwa Yakasai, said that 10 women are available for him to choose 4 for marriage.
Speaking on Freedom Radio, Kano, Yakasai, said Salisu has exhibited the attributes of Prophet Muhammad (SAW); hence, the association’s decision to honour him with the gift of the women.
“There are 10 women for him to select four [of his choice]. Two of them are my daughters,” Yakasai stated.
Reacting to the offer, Salisu declined the women, noting that he is not interested in marriage at the moment, rather, he wants to further his education.
Speaking to BBC Pidgin, Salisu said;
“I hear about di offer as many pipo dey tok about am but my ansa na ‘no’ at di moment marriage no dey my plan.”
“I just want to go back to school to finish my education den tink of marriage afta dat.”
