The Nigerian Senate just approved language that would remove the protection for young women and girls from repeatedly being rape in the guise of early marriage.
New York-based Guttmacher Institute’s study reports that the Nigerian authorities have been failing to implement sexual health education for decades and now, the Nigerian Senate has made it part of the Nigerian Constitution to give adult men the right to take any young girl as a wife, even as young as ten years old. Here is the senate’s new rule: “”The Nigerian Senate also resolved to alter Section 29 (a) of the constitution that stipulates that a woman shall not be qualified for marriage until she attains the 18 years as they deleted age specification for women being married from the draft constitution and left the marriage age for women open. The Senate claimed that a woman is deemed to be “full of age” once she is married irrespective of the age she did so.”
We need your help to get ACTION from the United Nations to stop the government of Nigeria from this grave injustice!
Help our young girls grow up to reach their God-given potential.

  1. Hypocracy at its peak. When little underaged girls sleep with men in Port Hacourt, Lagos etc; nobody makes noise. But when same aged girls marry in other parts of the country hypocrites start shouting. They encourage fornication and fight against marriage. The intent is to insult a section of the country- as the picture clearly suggest. God is always with the truthful.

  2. An applause for u MC, I c u dnt hv sisters.But I pray and hope u will give out ur daughters,Out for marriage at d age of ten.

  3. Let’s me tell you people who are againting what Nigerian senators have done about girls marriage you should keep your stupidity mouth short because you don’t have anything to do about the senators actions.

  4. i av nt seen any muslim female talk on dis is like theor silence mean no which means they dont want to say anytin bcs of their husband

  5. The Goverment of nigeria protect Yuong Girls from Marriad under age ok we had that! I want ask the Sanete which action did the muslims and the Christain of the Sanete of Nigeria did to protect Men and Woman Boys & Girls of our Nation from Prostitution which we all know is aganse our Religion.

  6. that was injustice! . a report shwos that, a lot girls that raped in america are under 18, so why you never take any reaction when peaople raped young girls? but you want stop marrie young girls!!! wawaye kawai

  7. I seriously support d motion of d senate on d amendment of d section 29 of d constitution on early marriage. As a pious christian,d rate of sexual immorality in d country is exceedingly high.with d introduction of early girl marriage in d country,d level of sexual crimes will be greatly reduced.Teen pregnancy,rape,prostitutionetc will certainly diminish in our country.

    if u think dat i’m saying nonsense,then consider these scenarios plaguing d coutry:a female of 20yrs after post secondary education is deseparately having sex with any man dat comes her way in d intent dat among these numbers one out of them will marry her.Another is d issue of young girls flooding d churches with an ulterior motive of finding a serious-minded man.in this case any man dat comes her will certainly have his way in her.

    with d above points,i think any Nigerian who criticizes negatively on this issue is a madman and is satanic.United Nations should completely stay out of this.NIGERIA MUST BE SANITIZED OF SEXUAL IMMORALITIES!!!

  8. Cecilia , Dise etc. You agree to have sex at early age but marriage , foul. The difference between having illegitimate affair at 14 and marriage at same age is that one is legal and the other is prohibited. I can see that you ppl insist on fornication and adultery. Ok Zainab and Aisha get married as the Lord ordained while Cecilia and Dise please keep the brothels.
