…Nigeria Senates Okays the Marriage of Under-AGE Girls…

…This is Insanity… It is Now Legal to Marry Under-Age Girl in Nigeria…


Here's how it happened. The Nigerian senate on Tuesday July 16th pegged the official marriage age in Nigeria as 18 years when they amended the constitution. Then Former Zamfara Governor, now Senator, Sani Yerima, who married a 13 year old Egyptian girl in 2010, opposed the age restrictions saying it was anti-islam. For some reason the Senate agreed with him and made an about turn.

The Senate has now deleted the age specification from the new constitution, leaving marriage age for women open. They stated that 'a woman is deemed to be “full of age” once she is married irrespective of the age she did so.'

So basically, this new law allows the marriage of under aged girls.
