Nigerian law maker, Alhassan Ado Doguwa who is the majority leader of the House of Reps on Thursday explained to his fellow lawmakers why he is competent to serve.

Doguwa represents Doguwa/Tudun Wada Federal Constituency of Kano State Nigeria.

Proudly showing his wives to his colleagues, the lawmaker declared that he is a powerful man because he deals with FOUR women.

“Mr Speaker, I will let you know that with me today here are my four respected wives”, he said.

He called on his wives to rise.

“Mr Speaker and Honorable members, I have asked them to rise to respect the house on behalf of my family”, he said.

“And one other reason is to let you know that when members call me a powerful man, I am not only powerful on the floor of the house, I am also powerful at home because I deal with four wives. These four wives have produced 27 children for me and I’m still counting,” he added.

Doguwa made the statement while he was being sworn-in after winning election. The video has since gone viral on Nigeria’s internet space.

The lawmaker’s comment came barely few days after the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, said the culture of marrying many wives and producing many children is responsible for poverty and backwardness in Northern Nigeria.

Sanusi argued that the region will continue to be backward if its people do not change their culture.
