Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something. I don’t know how many bills (if any) Senator Sani Ahmed Yerima has sponsored or co-sponsored since he has been in the Senate.
But his recent Child Marriage Bill is like a baker whose bread and pastries had a marvelous aroma but upon taking a bite you discovered that they were poison.
No one expects much from the Senate led by David Mark as president. The upper chamber which should comprise men and women of intellect, courage, probity, honesty, wisdom, and vision is unfortunately occupied by nitwit corrupt buffoons.
That Yerima came up with child predatory bill is acting to type. The issue boils down to the quality of people that govern Nigeria. I see the issue more of a moral and character flaw than a constitutional problem.
What type of people do we elect to run the affairs of our country? What do you expect when law breakers are law makers? What happens when ex-felons, absconded criminals, thieves, empty headed and sin-soaked apostates and “Cows of Bashan” preside over the affairs of a nation?
With Yerima’s bill, wickedness is carried literally in a basket in the upper house for the Senators to pick and choose. The under-age marriage bill is another name for evil. It shows the extent and extreme of the malignancy of sin that has taken over our National Assembly.
Does the private life of a leader truly impact his or her public life? No question. Character plays a vital role. Character is more than a talk. Character is the foundation on which a leader builds his or life. It all begins with character, because leadership operates on the basis of trust.
Character communicates credibility, harnesses respect, creates consistency and earns trust. Anyone can say he has integrity, but action is the real indicator of character. Your character determines who you are and what you do. That’s why you can never separate a leader’s character from his actions.
Does Yerima know where he is going? Absolutely not. Do we want to follow him? Hell no! Leaders who fail morally do not lead anyone to a better place.
A good leader balances sensitivity with responsibility. Facilitates development in others such as the children Yerima wants to kidnap into early marriage. How can so many Senators in Nigeria get away with murder? Because it’s Nigeria where the dead governs the living!
The Yerima Child Marriage Bill is the kind one would expect from a heathen, savage, and beast-like men. That Yerima has the audacity and temerity to sponsor such amendment is to liken him to a beast and to stress the animal within the man.
Yerima has proven that he is a lustful and impudent creature by taken a 13-year old Egyptian minor as wife. The Old proverb which says that man is the wolf of his fellow man seems off the track when one thinks of Yerima as husband of a 13-year old and sponsor of a Child Marriage Bill for other beasts to follow his footsteps. Indeed, wolves never kill wolves. Man is the only animal that specializes in mutual extermination.
By now, Nigerians are used to babel symphony from deranged senators who are in Abuja not for the people’s business but to collect their pay and steal as much money as they could. But this is the first time a pedophile that is utterly destitute of reason and dexterity would assault the sensibilities of our humanity by advocating for a beastly kind of life in copulating with a child-wife.
When bombarded by barrage of criticisms, Yerima, the libidinous fool replied: ”Nigeria has many uncountable problems and none of them is early marriage. As a matter of
fact early marriage is the solution to about half of our problems,” Does this sound like a senator of a country? So, the greatest problem facing Nigeria is “early marriage”? Which planet is Yerima operating from?
“For those who wonder if I can give my daughter(s) out in marriage at
the age of 9 or 13,” continued Yerima, “I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and it’s not your business. This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind, Muhammad ﺻَﻠَّﻰ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻪِﻭَﺳَﻠَّﻢَ, said Yerima.
Really? Yerima and the other 11 child molesters who voted for the amendment are “Cows of Bashan” full of vanity, greed, and lack moral consciousness. For this statement, Yerima would be in jail by now in a civilized country with the rule of law.
Here comes Yerima the Islamic scholar: “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,” argued Yerima, “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,” Yerima said.
“So what can anybody tell me?” asked Yerima. Wrapping up his defense, Yerima cites cooked up figures and facts to justify his amendment:
“~ I live in a city where young girls at the age of 12 have already became serial fornicators and cannot count the number of man they’ve had sex with.
~ I live in a City where primary school children disvirgin themselves behind toilets on
~ I live in a city where young girls flood the street at night looking for men that would give them N500 to have sex with them.
~ I live in a city where parents send their daughters out overseas to prostitute and send dollars down.
~ I live in a City where Government officials pick undergraduates from University car parks with Coastal Buses to wild sex parties.
~ I live in a city where abortion is so common that even a Chemist shore owner can perform
abortion with just N2,500.”
And finally, Yerima rested his case:”These are your daughters, and this should worry you and not Yerima’s private matters.
So ask me again why I support early marriage and I will slap the Jinn out of your head.”
The nation’s morals can be no stronger than the nation’s leaders. In today’s Nigeria, prince and priest alike pervert justice, oppress the helpless, and minister for bribes. Yerima is one of the devil’s best workers.
What’s the job of Yerima as a senator? Isn’t it to make education accessible, available, and affordable to the minors he’s talking about? Isn’t it part of his duty to create jobs for these girls who sell their bodies for the price of a loaf of bread? What about provision of health clinics and hospitals where women could seek medical help? These and other everyday needs are the kinds of bills that Yerima and his co-child molesters should sponsor.
Do we need to remind the Yerimas of the world that they are responsible for the impoverishment of Nigerian children by milking the country bone dry? Who else to blame other than the looters of our treasury – the Yerimas – for children prostitution?
Yerima’s Child Marriage Bill is like inviting hungry and thirsty Nigerian parents to eat their own dung and drink their own urine. Where is the outrage of the women senators? Where is the indignation of Nigerian parents? Where is the law enforcement to arrest Yerima for child molestation?
In a developed democracy with enlightened citizenry, by now hell would have broken loose and phones ringing off the hook from constituents to their senators over the Yerima’s bill. But then, this is Nigeria where the absurd means applaud!
If you ever wear corrective lenses, you’re probably familiar with the term myopia. Myopia, simply defined, is improper focus. Images appear blurred because the eye is incapable of bringing the light into sharp focus. Physical myopia can be detected and compensated for quite easily. It’s not the darkness that blocks Yerima’s vision, rather what is between his legs.
Yerima’s heart is a barren and profitless soil, in which no seeds of character can grow or flourish. For him to have married a minor and to canvass for such practice is to choose the darkness of error and Satanic delusion. If Yerima lacks wisdom to discharge the duties of his office, let him ask of God.
By this bill, Yerima has unknowingly written his own epitaph: “Here lies Senator Sani Ahmed Yerima: a child molester, child violator, and child predator. Thank God Almighty our children our free at last!”
