- Women in Maiduguri have began to register for cooking classes in order to avoid being divorced by their husbands
- The initiative, called Na’ish Kitchen, was established in January 2019 by Aisha Musa Kidah, a Maiduguri-based lady
- Kidah said that her aim is to make the husbands to love their wives and think less of divorcing them
A Maiduguri-based lady, Aisha Musa Kidah, has revealed that most marriages in Borno break up because of the inability of wives to cook tasty meals for their husbands.
In a decisive effort to end the trend, Aisha has established a private initiative called Na’ish Kitchen to train women generally on preparing meals that “meet the appetite” of their husbands so that they can avoid being divorced, Daily Trust reports.
The initiative, which started January 2019, has so far trained 100 housewives and spinsters in the state, including 400 widows of fallen heroes and policemen killed by Boko Haram insurgents.
Aisha said: “The Borno society is so charged by insurgency that has created a multitude of economic problems provoking husbands to divorce their wives just because of bad cooking.
“Driven by sheer passion to save the marriages of my fellow women rather than to get wealthy, I felt so much concerned that I sought the approval of my father to take up the training initiative, and he approved and even motivated me with the glad tidings of getting a multitude of rewards from Allah.
“Consequently, I opened the Na’ish Kitchen last January (2019) with all the needed facilities and utensils at about N3 million."
She stressed that her aim is to make the husbands to love their wives and think less of divorcing them.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Borno state governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, had donated some parts of the enclave of the Boko Haram insurgents, Sambisa forest, for the controversial Rural Grazing Area (RUGA) programme.
The allocated area (forest) covers six council areas of Konduga, Bama, Gwoza, Chibok, Damboa and Askira/Uba.
