NIGERIAN SENATE BACKS UNDERAGE MARRIAGE

Senator Ahmad Sani Yerima finally got an ignoble clause in our constitution retained by the Senate. This act of himself and his colleagues will allow all married citizens to assume the status of an adult without specifying age limits. This act is to clandestinely give legal support to underage marriage. Meaning you are now free to marry a 3 year old girl. This bill will become law if the House of Representatives members support  it. We are in trouble.

This Bill must be thrown out. For a 50 year old man to marry a 2 years old girl is not only bad, it is sickening. This nonsense must stop

      SENATOR AHMED SANI YARIMAN BAKURA REPLIES HIS ENEMIES

      ''Nigeria has many uncountable problems and none of them is early marriage. As a matter of fact early marriage the solution to about half of our problems. For those who wonder if I can give my daughter(s) out in marriage at the age of 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and its not your business. This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind, Muhammad ﺻَﻠَّﻰ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻪِ ﻭَﺳَﻠَّﻢَ .
      In Islam, marriage is not only about sex, it is about family and helping one another in achieving their goals, which is the attainment of Paradise.
      In Islam, a girl can be given out in marriage as early as 6 years old, but consummation of the marriage can only be done when the girl becomes physically mature and she gives her consent to it because unlike English law, it is not permissible for a man to rape his wife in Shari'ah Law.
      So what can anybody tell me?

      SHOCKING: Nigeria Senate Approves Marriage for Underage Children

      ender age marriageThe Senate of Federal republic of Nigeria has approved the marriage of under-aged children irrespective of their age in the country. This new law will proscribe the 18 year-old rule for any Nigerian child to qualify to engaged into a conscious agreement of marriage.

      The Senates claimed that a woman is deemed to be full of age once she is married irrespective of her age.The Proponents or supporters of the under-age marriage rule includes Senator Yerima Ahmad Sani, Zamfara West, who claimed that the provision which stipulates a certain age for women before getting married, was at variance with Islamic law.

      After a moment of controversy, Senate President David Mark asked his colleagues to vote afresh on the provision, a situation that eventually went in favour of Sani, who, thereafter, thanked the Senate president and his colleagues for supporting his cause.

      Teekay Akin Rape a minor, marry a minor! Nigerian senate says YES!

      Only in Nigeria! Only in that area called Nigeria will he senate back the marriage of a minor and do nothing as regards children being killed.

      The message the senate has passed to the masses: You can both marry our minors and kill them as well, we really don't care and neither should you!
      But foolishly and sadly, the over 90 million Nigerian adults follow, keep silent and say NOTHING nor do NOTHING!

      LGBT rights between two consenting adults they jail for 14 years BUT, BUT, BUT marriage to a minor which is RAPE they have made legal.
      Damn, no wonder the world over sees and laughs at the black man, calling him a fool, an uncivilised creature and a mere animal! But why wouldn't they?

      When the Turkish president referred to blacks as animals and brain dead - along those lines - many of you jumped up, signing petitions and all the rubbish, but what do we see daily?

      Have we portrayed ourselves in any better light?
