Most powerful man on earth

He fell in love with his first wife because she was sincere and eager to please.

His second wife, a cousin, was irresistible because she did everything he wished and nothing he didn't. "That alone made me love her."

His third wife won him because she submitted to his every request. "I saw her, I liked her. I went to her parents and asked for her hand in marriage."

Wife No. 4 was very obedient. So was wife No. 5. Wife No. 6, the same. As were wives 7 and 8 and 9 and …

Well, by then — it was the late 1980s — things had taken off for Bello Maasaba, an Islamic faith healer in
Nigeria. He went from a wedding every few months to one every few weeks.

In a nutshell, this 87-year-old has married 107 women, which, even in a society with a tradition of polygamy, is on the high side. The Nigerian government is not amused. Neither are Islamic authorities in the state.

But he's still marrying, every time Miss Right comes along. He now has 86 wives, the youngest 19 and the oldest 64. Nine have died and 12 he divorced (for disobedience).

He stays in a looming four-story house in
Niger State, with 89 rooms and a broad veranda supported by gold columns. He wears a tall white hat, and smiles a crooked-toothed smile. The pouches under his eyes give him a mournful air. But there's barely a wrinkle on his forehead, and he professes to have no worries. This is not something that many men even with single marriages could take pride in.

But the question that quickly comes into mind is, does he even fulfill the sanctity of the marriage (You know what I mean by that). Apparently, these are not just marriages for the sake of marriages. He has actually fathered 172 children.

We live in a society where women are filing for divorce because their husbands (this is not to indicate multiple husbands but it’s a match for the plurality of women) are not able to fulfill the physical requirements of marriage. Here is a man who maintains a capability of managing and satisfying 86 women. 

"A man with 10 wives would collapse and die, but my own power is given by Allah" says Masaba.
True, it really takes a lot of power to keep 86 women fulfilled.

Just doing plain math, 1 per week for each woman would still make it roughly about 12 sessions per day. In between all the faith healing, he must be running in take a holy dip. Come back purified and continue with faith healing. At 87, most men find it difficult to get urine out of it, let alone use it for any other purposes. This man is using it in a manner which would put a 20 year old to shame. 

Move over Obama, Masaba is the most powerful man on earth. He has the power that actually matters.
