"A nation of perverts and paedophiles" - Femi Fani Kayode

The Nigerian Senate includes some of the brightest minds in our country many of whom are friends of mine and most of whom have been in active politics for many years. They have my respect. However what transpired in the Senate chamber a few days ago was a great cause for concern for not just me but millions of Nigerians from all over the world. How an innocent and seemingly uninteresting, uninspiring and unimportant debate about when and at what age a Nigerian citizen could legitimately and lawfully renounce his or her citizenship turned into a referendum on paedophilia and child marriage I dont know. Yet sadly that is precisely what happened and ever since then the nation has been on fire. 
 
Senator (ex-Governor) Ahmed Sani, the Yerima Bakura and the Apostle of political sharia in Nigeria finally got his way and the futile attempt by a small number of good, noble and honourable Senators to amend the existing law on marriage and properly define the age of a female that is eligible to marry was thwarted by the pro-paedophilia, pro-child rape and pro-child marriage group within the Senate. Sadly our distinguished Senators eventually bowed to the will of Yerima and his friends and agreed to remain silent about the age that young girls can get married in Nigeria. What this means is that girls that are as young as 9 years old can continue to be lawfully bedded and married in our country providing they are deemed as being ''physically developed enough'' to do so by their suitors, their prospective husbands and their parents. That is the law and that is the sordid level that we as a people and as a nation have degenerated to over the years.
 
I weep for Nigeria and, perhaps more appropiately, I weep for the Nigerian girl child. I weep because it is obvious to me that the Yerima's of this world wish to turn our country into a giant Bangkok to which millions of sexual deviants flock from all over the world to ''enjoy'' our ''tourist attractions'' and ''have a taste'' of our young and beloved children. Worst still they wish to use religion to defend and justify it.  Yet we have no choice but to live with this new reality and to accept it as it is. After all, our representatives in the sacred halls of the Senate were not sensitive enough or ''man enough'' to shoot down the whole thing, to stand firmly against the unholy agenda and to say boldly and firmly that ''come what may'' our children must be protected from sexual deviants and reprobates.

And since the Senate, in its infinate wisdom, has now bought into and openly endorsed the "Paedophile Charter" which essentially makes it lawful and constitutional for very young girls to get married and to have sex at a very young age it is my firm view that we have now become a nation of perverts and paedophiles. The Senate had a chance to clear the air and amend the law but, out of nothing but sentiment and an inexplicable eagerness to compromise with that which is clearly evil, they threw that chance away and sacrificed our most sacred values to Yerima and his gang. Worst still they did it with a smile on their faces. Every Nigerian should bow his or her head in shame because instead of crushing the head of the lustful beast that seeks to fornicate with our children, to steal their virtues and to destroy their future what the Senate did the other day was to compromise with and cater for the filthy appetites and godless fantasies of a bunch of child molestors and sexual predators. It is sordid. It is ungodly. It is evil. And it is unforgiveable.

Surely we ought to be seeking to protect our children and not seeking to bed them. Yet it appears that not everyone shares our outrage and collective sense of shame. One Uche Ezechukwu made the following contribution which went viral on the social media networks and which I think speaks volumes. He wrote-

"Those who are railing against 'paedophile' senators, like Yerima Bakura, must be told that a muslim can’t go wrong while imitating the examples of the Apostle of Allah himself and the founder of his religion, in the same way a christian cannot be criticized for following the examples of Jesus Christ. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) married Aisha at the age of six and consummated the marriage when she was nine. So, why are we judging muslims by our own standards?"

I am appauled by these words. The truth is that I have never heard such a self-serving and specious arguement in defence of the philosophies and beliefs of the Ayatollah of Bakura, Senator Ahmed Sani, the practising paedophile who married and bedded a 12 year old Egyptian girl, as this one. Ahmed Sani himself could not have argued it better. Yet I think that it is an utter shame. And this is more so because the individual that is putting the arguement is supposedly a christian. The Old Testament of the Holy Bible prescribes ''stoning'' for adultry but that does not mean that christian countries, or indeed secular states like Nigeria, should stone adulterers.

Neither does it mean that we should preserve the institution of slavery or crucify petty thieves simply because the Holy Bible endorsed both practices in the Old Testament. We must accept the fact that the interpretation of biblical and koranic provisions are evolutionary and are ever changing. Jesus Himself said ''laws are made for man and not man for laws''. The suggestion that paedophilia has any place in any modern and decent society simply because it was once practised in the distant past is not only a despicable arguement but it also does not make any sense. After all cannibalism and child and human sacrifice were once widely practised and were held as being perfectly acceptable throughout the world as well but that does not mean that we should practice any of those terrible vices today.

The young man, Uche Ezechukwu, who appears to be defending child rape in the name of islam, should either let someone lay with and ''marry'' his own 6 or 9 year old daughter or he should seal his lips forever and stop trying to defend the indefensible. His assertions, and I daresay those of Senator Ahmed Sani and anyone that shares their primitive views, are not only utterly immoral and reprehensible but they are also intellectually dishonest. I say this because the truth is that there is NO muslim country in the world that has adopted the "paedophile charter" where 6 or 9 year olds can marry and be bedded except for Saudi Arabia, Iran and Yemen.

Every other muslim country in the world, including Turkey, Indonesia, Pakistan, Malaysia, Egypt, Jordan, Senegal, the Sudan, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Palestine, United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh, Qatar, Bahrain, Dagestan, Albania, Bosnia, Somalia, Algeria, Libya, Mali, Azerbejhan,
Niger, Turkestan, Chechnya and Syria have specifically banned child marriage, paedophilia and child rape in their various constitutions and laws and some have declared it ''repugnant'', ''unacceptable'' and ''unislamic''. Are these people not muslims too? As a matte if fact are they not better muslims than those that insist on sleeping with or marrying underage girls in the name of islam?

Like christianity and judaism, islam is a noble, pure, honourable and ancient faith that seeks to protect the weakest and most vulnerable in society, including children. No-one should use the misinterpretation of its provisions to try to justify or rationalise what is essentially depraved, shameful, disgusting and barbaric behaviour and the most sordid and filthy expression of sexual deviance and perversion. Even animals do not marry or bed their own infants. The bitter truth is that paedophiles have no place in any civilised society.

I am constrained to say that in the light of their "yes" vote to child marriage and their green light to paedophilia, every single member of the Nigerian Senate that voted with Yerima on that day and that supported his filthy agenda should bow their heads in utter shame and they should be compelled to offer their own infant and under age daughters to strangers for marriage. I repeat, they have turned us into a nation of perverts and paedophiles and I say a pox on all their houses. I reserve my commendations and respect only for those Senators that opposed and voted against Yerima's protestations and agenda and that stood for that which was right even though they could not muster enough votes to have their way. My word to this brave and righteous few is simple and clear- keep the struggle alive and continue to resist the evil that resides amongst us all. You are the only thing that stands between our children and the practising paedophiles in our midst who seek to ravage and bed them even before they have entered their teens.

Every pervert caught in Nigeria now has legal backing somewhat. As they can now say they deemed their victim physically developed. Take the case of the 9 year old who was raped to death recently,her 20 year old attacker said she gave consent. I was baffled at the thought of a 9 year old having consensual sex. Another was a picture that went viral some months back, it was a shocking shot of an older male with his erect penis in the mouth of a little girl who couldn't have been a day above 2 years. I wept and cursed and fumed and gave up, I apparently wasn't going to get a chance to kill him.
Gone are the days when you could comfortably leave your daughter playing in your compound under the watchful eyes of a and dash to the market. These days I cringe when I see a male relative carrying his niece or nephew on his knees. It's gotten to the point where I can trust no uncle,nephew,male cousin and horrible of me but brother too around a female child. Too many stories, too many incidents and one would almost pray not to have a child with the XY chromosome.
You can't send her to school without going paranoid, you can't leave her outside playing like a child is meant to,you can't let her have sleepovers,the church isn't even safe any more so there goes children's choir practice. Nigeria has indeed become a nation that not only lets child molesters get away free but we've also let them walk proudly amongst us.

FYI Uche Ezechukwu literally means the Mind of the King God, what am I trying to say? Well that name is a pseudonym made up by a perverted ........ (Let me leave that blank) because the Igbo nation is virtually Christian, so if one threw his support against this absurd law, it would seem alright. Believe me, no Christian would put the abbreviation (SAW) after the name of the Prophet Moh'd, he wouldn't know to do that; at least according to me. This is just another way perverted .......... Want to use to watermark what has been a great day of SHAME for the most populous black nation in the world. This is not voting for a 6 year single tenure or for the launch of N 5000 notes, this is an agreement to defile kids as young as 1 month old because her poor, illiterate parents deem her fit for marriage! God save this nation from the misgivings and mismanagement of our leaders.

Honestly I dnt knw wat the world is turning into... Most senators on the list are from the north! They would never give out their own child at such age. Does this mean boys as well although it seems the girl child is the one truly affected. This sadly means the young man is cross river who slept with the young 9 year old could go free. SMH this country is truly a mirage it seizes to exist on true foundation. So sad as if as a nation we dnt have enough to deal with

For once, I agree with FFK. He has spoken with great wisdom and has expressed that which is my mind. Have the Senators forgotten that they are Fathers and Mothers? Is their job not to protect their Children? How could the women sit through that decision? I bow my head in shame at our leaders.

I honestly never thought that a day would come where I will wholeheartedly agree with Mr Kayode, but i'm glad that there are people speaking up against this insanity. I just need to know a few things are there women in the senate, are there child right groups in Nigeria, and lastly why are people not emotional on this issue as they were on the issue of gay marriage? We need more voices to speak up and defend our children because according to the law it's open season for underage defenseless children in the hands of perverts.

We'll Insist That Our Daughters Be Sent To School And Not To Infant Marriages.

Education is the bedrock of every society, and the education of the girl child is as important as that of her male counterpart.

We therefore are surprised that Nigeria's Senate didn't consider making it mandatory for every girl child below 18 to be in school. Instead, they gave a legislative seal of approval for the marriage of underage girls. That means even a 5 year old toddler could be married off by her parents.

Nigerians of all tribes and religions have rejected this, and therefore undertake to stand against the state-sanctioned abuse of the girl child.

We will save the girl child. She's a #‎ChildNotBride .

I have always maintained that Nigeria is a BIG JOKE! We have men and women who are supposed to be highly intelligent and upholders of our laws, the country pays them outrageously, and yet all they do is to fight and squabble like touts, break every breakable law and get away with it, and then use their positions to enact selfishly motivated laws that do not have the interest of Nigerians at heart! Bigots and fools who have no sense or concience!

It is a pity that these animals were voted in by the same people they are undermining.... but the saddest part of it all is that when they come out for reelection, the same people will vote them again!

I am so full of bile for these things that right now, I am seriously praying for the military to come back. All this has gone to show that we are not fit for democracy. In sec. school I learnt that democracy is govt. of the people, for the people and by the people... WHAT WE HAVE IS NOT EVEN NEARLY DEMOCRACY!!!

Well Mr Kayode I disagree with ur. Comment saying most of our Senator's are of a bright mind. People that are enlightened do not make such irrational and babaric decisions. The tot that dey could give this paedophiles freedom 2 molest a girl or 9yrs or lower depending on how she matures tells us that we have come to that stage that if we do not move fast we will be regreting dis law 4 years to come. They sick d general public needs to protest against these. "Atiku said that he does not give his daughters away in marriage until after there university degrees r gotten so Mr Uche it ain't a muslim thing. We ain't a muslim country so dey should take dere law and shove it up their ass cause we don't want..

She stay 6 month in a womans home in Afganistan, when the family of her husband told her that they will forget that she run away, they take her home and than they bringher out of the house in the mountains and cut her nose and hear ears and let her in the maontains. Read her story. She is now in America and they make her a new nose.

It is a shame and the northern part of nigferia will become a second afganistan.

Woman of Nigeria please let the people outside your country know about this law, and now Nigeria will become the country where this Child-molester can travel because they can make it legaly there, and i know there will be many men who will sell there little girls to this child-molester because they see only the money they get.

In Nigeria is all about money and that will be soon the next big business and the law is on there side.

I think interpretation is missing here what the bill states is dat any child married should be define as a woman. Now the child act states the age for every girl to get married which is 18. To me the interpretation of the bill is to protect those who are already married to teens it is not abolishing the the child's act but mere clarifying it. It did not categorically state that 18years should b replaced. Well everyone has there interpretation

If you've ever said "go and marry" to/ about any female then you might as well have voted for this disgusting, sexist law. The idea that a woman is incomplete without a husband and offspring 100% advocates the now legal consensus that the objectification of the female is socially acceptable. We are all responsible. No one condones cannibalism so it will never be passed as law even though it has been known to happen. Signing petitions and forwarded campaign BBMs from the safety of our own lives will not and cannot change anything. Real change starts from within. Look in the mirror and see the Yerima in you staring back. Ready to rethink your thinking? Good.

Iv read this blog and a few of the comments here, some say they blame the parents,but the truth is a child has No power over her parents, It is for the law to protect girls under this condition. Another thing is the main reason why I tink underage marriage is possible is because of poverty and ignorance.the senators who marry children would never give up their own child at such age because.their daughters are probably In sophisticated schools. While they try to use money to buy girls from their parents under the cloak of religion.

NIGERIA SENATOR AHMED SANI YERIMA REPLIES SPEAKS:

''Nigeria has many uncountable problems and none of them is early marriage. As a matter of fact early marriage the solution to about half of our problems. For those who wonder if I can give my daughter(s) out in marriage at the age of 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and its not your business.

This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind, Muhammad ﺻَﻠَّﻰ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻪِ ﻭَﺳَﻠَّﻢَ .

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 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.
So what can anybody tell me?

~ 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.

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''.

- Senator Ahmad Sani Yarima

Dehinde Jinadu said...

I’m writing this piece with so much grievance and discontent, I am a Muslim and I have been practicing the Islamic faith from my childhood. In as much as I cherish my religion, I honestly don’t like some of those who will practice this religion together. On the 24th June2013, just two (2) days to my birthday, I denounced myself a Muslim and after just thirty-five minutes, I had to take the ritual bath to be a Muslim again. What lead to my decision to denounce myself as a Muslim?
I was watching a video on YouTube where I saw some so called Muslim brothers (I seize to see them as Muslims anyway) behead a Reverend father, I wept heavily while I took the courage to complete the Video. I wept because of two things: One is the so called perpetrators where shouting (ALLAHU AKBAR) ALLAH is the greatest while they performed this devilish act and the second was that I sighted a child(presumed below 7years) in their means watching them behead the poor Man. After I watched this video, I thought to myself I will continue to practice Islam but I will never call myself a Muslim because I don’t want to bear the same name with these heartless and devilish people who use the word Muslims to perpetrate ungodly acts. After I denounced myself and called my cleric to inform him of my decision, then he enlightened me more on why I cannot practice Islam and say am not a Muslim, then I changed my mind and took it upon myself to enlighten people the best way I can.What drove me crazy this week was the legalization of underage marriage in Nigeria by the Nigerian Senate. The most annoying issue of this is the fact that the senators are misinterpreting the Quran to suit their sex urge, in as much as I agree that a girl could get married according to Islamic teachings after her third (not too sure may be third or fourth) menstrual experience, there are also conditions that should be met.
The Nigerian senate does not have any right to pass such a bill in a state that is not an Islamic state;only in an Islamic state can such a law be passed. So my question is what determines an Islamic State, a state can be called an Islamic State if she meets three conditions.First of those conditions is that in an Islamic state, everyone must have shelter irrespective of whether they have a job or they have money or not. Secondly, the government of an Islamic state must feed everyone who does not have the capability to do so and lastly the government in an Islamic state must clothe everyone. Now my question is which of the aforementioned conditions does Nigeria meet?If people cannot have a three square meal, adequate clothing and appropriate housing then such a bill should not have been passed in the first place and even if they pass such bill to satisfy their self-seeking interest, Islam should be exempted from the debate.Islam is a noble, pure, honorable and ancient faith that seeks to protect the weakest and most vulnerable in the society,including children. Our useless and selfish senators should not use the misinterpretation of the Quran to justify or rationalize what is essentially decadent,reprehensible, sordid and barbaric.People should stop misinterpreting the Quran and Hadith to suit their venal interest;the Quran is a manual of life which must be followed with the conditions not ignored. Jihad is another issue that bothers me but I won’t be saying anything on this today, as I am taking a class to study more about Jihad and promote peace(Anyone who kills a fellow should also be killed , I found this in the Quran),but today is not a day for Jihad but to for our injudicious, shameless and outrageous senators.
