The 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.

It is worthy of note that Senator Yerima Ahmad Sani had two years ago married a 13-year-old Egyptian in violation of the constitutional provision.

Mad people.  They can no longer think straight.  They cant make any good law to favour all and sundry.  Yerima brought this evil bill bcos he married 13 year old girl and nothing happened.

No sane parents will give out their under aged kids for marriage.

Rubbish. Senate House of Commotion/Horror. I  Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry for the future of my dear country

But come to think of it, even if Yerima proposed it, did he force the other members to support it?
This shows that they all have the same devilish thought. They would have done the worse if found in Yerima's shoes.
Very sad.
