Umar Sani, a young man who married two wives on the same day in Minna, Niger State, described himself as being in paradise.
Mr Sani, who got married to Safina and Maryam on Friday, told a Minna-based online newspaper, Tsalle Dayya, that “I feel as if I have been given a space in paradise, I’m extremely grateful to Allah and my joy is immeasurable.
“I’m thankful to God that I’m happily married to two brides. They’re both understanding, which I appreciate.
Many people thought that either of them would cause problems, but God, in his wisdom, has made everything perfect.”
Mr. Umar explained that his decision was influenced by his polygamous family history.
“I’ve known my father had four wives since I was ten years old, and I’ve seen how peacefully they lived. I made a promise to myself that I would marry more than one wife if I had my way, or marry three or four same day”.
Although he said his parents were surprised by the decision, they never stopped him from fulfilling his dreams.
“My parents were surprised because my father never married two wives on the same day. However, they did not object. “Right now, the most important thing for us is to have a peaceful home,” he explained.
