‘Tired And Fed Up’ Of Husband, Ganduje’s Daughters Seeks Divorce In Sharia Court

The year seems to be starting on a tumultuous note for Asiya, a daughter of Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

The governor’s approached the court through her counsel, Barrister Ibrahim Nassarawa, praying for the dissolution of her marriage through an Islamic means (Khul’i), insisting that she was tired and fed up staying with her husband.

The Upper Sharia Court in Kano State, presided over by Abdullahi Halliru, had dismissed the preliminary objection filed by counsel to Inuwa Uba, husband of Asiya Ganduje, challenging the jurisdiction of the court to hear the case.

When the court resumed on Thursday, for ruling on jurisdiction, the presiding judge declared that his court has jurisdiction to receive, hear and decide a matter related to divorce.

The judge asked counsel to the defendant to know how much his client paid as dowry at the time of the wedding prayer.

Umar said he was not aware of the exact amount his client paid to the plaintiff.

Meanwhile, both parties have urged the court for a stand down to further confirm from Asiya and Uba the amount of dowry they all agreed on during the wedding Fatiha.

Meanwhile, Asiya had told the court she is ready to return the N50,000 dowry her husband paid during the wedding Fatiha.
