The Nigerian Child Bride

Image

Senator and former governor of Zamfara State Alhaji Ahmed Rufai Sani Yerima has put forward a bill in the senate to legalize marriage with a thirteen year old child and very likely a dirty old man thereby legalizing child abuse in broad daylight in 2013. Coming from a  culture, religious and belief system where the consumption and trade in alcohol can draw a death sentence and “adultery” same by public stoning for the woman.

Nigerians say otherwise what do you say.

I hope this bill gets struck down. Children need to be protected, not married off to old men who will abuse them!!

It sounds like this senator may have his eye in some children himself, to even think this is okay. How can a country progress when the idea of exploiting the future of the country is even taken seriously. The daughter of Anwar Sadat, former Egyptian leader, was married off to one of her father’s friends at twelve. She never forgave him for that and wrote about it in her memoir.
