Mr. Yusif said the Chairman of the Local Organising Committee, LOC, for the wedding in the area, Abdullahi Basirka, announced the figure at a stakeholder meeting held in Gwaram on Thursday.

He said that the committee would visit the District Head of the area to solicit his support in educating people on the importance of the programme.

The government said the aim of the exercise was to check social vices among the people of the state.
