[Opinion] Yerima: The Libidinous Fool! By Bayo Oluwasanmi

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
Valentine day.
~ 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!”

  1. Indeed, this is a careless statement of the highest order Bayo, wish you could understand the perspective the distinguished senator based his claim and where he relied on,instead of making these ungodly abuses to the extend of calling him all sort of names. Earlier, I thought it is an opinion, but having perused through the article I learnt it was a curse and abuse of personality against the law maker. Why the grievances against the senator? I expect you to counter all that the senator said against what is happening in our society with our young girls especially in the learning institution than defaming him.

    • Abdul, i don’t want to abuse u, but it seems u are of d same kind wit yerima. If d excuses of yerima are facts, [email protected] means, Moslems needs to work on themselves. Such is not obtainable in my area. Both of u can champion [email protected] course in northern states, and carry it out among ur families. U are referring to yerima as honorable. Yerima is a total failure, disappointment & a disgrace to nigerians, to humanity @ large.

  2. for a leader to have this sort of crazzy mentality about life & marrige is insanity in highest order. i belive God in his infinite mercy will continue to save us from evils they want to be signed into lagality.

  3. God almighty will dry the wealth of thie wicked senator since his litle wealth is making him go inhumane! If him and the other idiots that supported this bill support charity and give scholarships with the money there embezzle would Nigeria not be a better place? Am just short of words. Useless senators

  4. Yerima is insane, He should be taken to psychatric hospital for treatment. Useless senators especially those that supported this act. Do we have women in the house? i dont think so cos if we do they suppose to silence this issue before it comes out because they are women. they should be impeached. infact let those that supported this act all be impeached. useless ppl that cannot control their sexual act and trying to lure little girls in it. its like sleeping with their daughter so let them born their girls and start sleeping with them. but ours ina zaku chi gidanku.

  5. To yerima and his co-devils u will all meet ur waterloo very soon because d prayers of d countless Nigerians that can’t air dia view,those already airing theirs n d cry of the molested children which u n ur co-devils have kidnapped all in d name of marriage will never return unhead in heaven n @ abdulnafiu what stops yerima from sponsoring dat lil 13yrs old child in sch,anyway lik bayo rightly said Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something @ al d women in power dis is d time for u all to fight for ur children,fight for d pain u faced during conception n fight for womanhood. @ celebrities in Nigeria, a true storyline has created itself,its time to act conclude d story by letting dis beast know dat dis children cannot be enslaved all in d name of marriage @those well meaning nigerians speaking for dis little children God bless u all. it’s time for us to speak our minds against dis beast in human form who wants to legalize sin all in d name of marriage

  6. NLC what r u guys waitin 4? U need to go on strick now bcos of girlchild marriage law yerima is forcin on us no b matter wen no concern una una go wan go on strick. Yerima ur days on earth are numbers!

  7. @hauwa. Are u not Muslim ? A true Muslim practice the saying nd deeds of PROPHET MUHAMMAD( SAW). Hawwa pls go back to islamiya nd ask ur teacher how d marriage is, nd d actual tym d girl should b with d husband.

    • God have mercy on your soul. What sought of religion would deny the gal child of the right to experience childhood as it were, and also hamper her the emotional, physical, psychological and intellectual growth?

    • Muslims have thier beliefs and it is that they can violate a girl at a tender age of 13.. So even if ur religion says so, cant u tink with ur head??? Is it right in your heart? Why did God give u brain if not to think? that is why you people kill and take lives cos u feel its the work of allah u are doing.. You have all been brain washed that you no longer can think what is right or wrong on you own.. If a Muslim has the guts to come to my house to my house to ask for any of my daughters hand in marriage, he will sure lose 1 part of his body..

  8. Well said Bayo. Child marriage is beastly. Dose of u supporting child marriage, y don’t u give up ur sistaz @ 13. Yerima is only lukin 4 ppl 2 join him. Child Marriage is simply wickedness. I feel for dose poor galz dt will fall victim. Dis is anoda means 2 islamize nigeria. We dnt av only muslims in this country. So the law shld nt b made 2 suit just muslims. Nigerians please letz stand up 2 fight dis. We must say no 2 dis animalistic behaviour.

  9. Yerima would have done better by marrying from the royal class & not a minor since his religion approves it. It is shameful that intergrity & morality were sacrificed by our law-makers on basis of religion. This then means dat the law-makers protect their selfish interests, if not how would a senator n father stoop to abuse under age in the name of marriage n stil garther support from fellow law-makers

  10. Yerima or whatever you call yourself. What you are doing is wrong inhuman and Shameful.
    I believe that my fellow Nigerians have showered enough insults and blames on you. This is to prove to you that you got it all wrong. Change your mentality old man… It’s wrong!
