Is the new Nigerian law promoting paedophilia?

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. What's your thoughts on this?

Seriously this Nigerian lawmakers and leaders get me exasperated over and over, its really frustrating, you go after consenting adults and give them 14 years imprisonment yet you give our female children freely to pedophiles! Lucky am not God cos I wouldn't waste time wiping them off the face of the earth cos they are totally useless

This is insane I hope our human rights activist are going to stand up against this nonsense what kind of a country is this for Christ sake. Gosh the law is sick nothing to protect us women n all they bother about is Brazilian hair n clothes some idiots are promoting rape n all sought of madness we need to stand up against this madness and the sad part of this is the masses will always suffer. So some dude rapes a girl n claims in court he wants to marry her that's why he had sex with her n she's probably 8 years old come on that's so not cool#justiceforwomen#

Completely stupid!this just shows that our constitution does not promote rule of law and law supremacy. The law was affected by one randy man(Yerima)who commited a classic case of "child abuse". That young child has lost her childhood as it is and for heaven's sake,when will people learn that female children who start having sex at such an early stage are prone to having vaginal issues and reproductive complications as their organs were not fully developed! The sooner we fight these misdemeanours,the better for us. Linda please post this,thanks.

As much as that sugests paedophilia, we should not overlook the fact that the constitution to a large extent stems from culture. There also has to be some level of concent before a girl is married off.

I just commit my unborn children into God's hands cos I fear to think wat dis country is turnin to.

Bella said...

If their religion allows them marry a child at any age no problem but I think the law should state a reasonable and safe age for the husbands to start having sex with them. I'm imagining an old man trying to experiment how far he can go on an 8yr old girl because well the law doesn't say he can't. Obviously that means forcing himself on her. I lost my virginity at 21 and the whole process freaked me out even though I knew what I was getting into, not to talk of being 13 or less. The parents too na wa for them

The senator has a point. They can't allow islamic religion in d country and den put up laws dat disallows their religion. It'll be better if d rule was ammended n christian girls be suitable for marriage from 18. Any mother that doesn't want to give their child out to a paedophile shuld switch over to christianity. #MyOpinion

This is because they are trying to "islamize" the country. This law means there is nothing like underage sex and this will them full right to take advantage of children without any guilt.
Where are the "so-called" women organisations in this? This law must be reversed.

Linda if u dont post this comment you are in support of this.

ISLAM!!! Why are all muslims the same. I supposed this was accepted because of the majority of Muslims in that house. I feel ashamed for my country.

How can any reasonable person in his right senses in this 21th century do something like this. And later I'd hear one fool say Islam is a religion of peace.

Well this is what I have to say. Islam does not promote peace, it hates women, it sees women as second class citizens (or much worse), and all we have are a bounce of confused bigots turning their so called religion into an eye irritant.

And please if I may ask, since when did chriatians not matter in this country. Very soon they will say all women in Nigeria should wear that stupid rubbish they wear on their heads and these pot-bellied bastards will assent to it.

In as much as I am concerned they should not generalize this obnoxious law. It should remain applicable to those that still want to tie themselves to this joke called Islam.

Just take a good look at all the nations were we have Muslims, there can never be peace. Its either they are bombing children, or killing women, or killing christians. They can never seem to get anything right. Now Nigeria is at the verge of joining this madness.

I am ready for all those pedophiles on this blog to reply me and state to the contrary on what I have said. If you what facts I will give it to u. Look at malala from Pakistan ( the girl shot in the head by extrimists on her way from school), look nsiri ali from somalia (who was a girl forced into marriage by her father on this same basis, she ran away and later became a parliamentarian in the Netherlands). I can go on and on.

Shame to all those who voted in support of this.

Linda if u don't post this comment you lack respect for your gender. The only way to stop this is to speak out and we are doing so. So don't stop me.

This is wrong plain n simple. Every country in the world has an age for accountability which is usually 18. But with this law it means a child is no longer a child. Even Saudi Arabia has age barriers. No no no.

It's absolutely non-sense. The fact that the known paedophilic Senator that goes by the name Yerima can mesmerise our senators and force them to rescind a decision they had already taken goes to show that many of them are ignorant and are not representing anybody but themselves only. This is a senator that ought to be in jail by now if he was in the United States or some country that protect the rights of their citizens. And now, he is being a judge in his own cause. What a shameless country we are in? With Jonathan at the top more wonders are yet to come.

@ Patalex...... l undastand ur grieviance and ur hunger to mak a change by ur voice. However, do undastand dat woteva religion u choose to subscribe to is entirely a choic dat has to b respected.

Let me now sound a caveat dat I'm a Christian, a stunch Catholic at dat. But if u hav indeed, bn meticulous enof to check compare d Qu'ran and d Bible, u'd realise dat it will appear d only better stand we hav as christians is Jesus Christ in his Ministry of d New Testament. Most of d quran seems to b lik d Old Testament, wia "an eye is paid 4 by anoda eye". But dia is no real emphasis on dis.

Further, my research on Islam reveals dat, just lik Christianity, it is not so much dat d religion advocates violence, it is much dat several of its adherents do not undastand it. For eg, d average undastandin of a Nigerian muslim abt Jihad is not d Quranic meanin thereto. Dia is nowhere in d Quran dat 17virgins are promised to warriors of jihad. No, not at all. Un4tunately, jst as many pastors giv dia own meanin or interpretation of d bible jst to further dia materialistic and quest for fam n power ambitions, so have oda islamic leaders n adherents done same in islam for political, religious and financial concerns.

But den, we will not condemn Christianity simply cos som of its followers are ritualists, fake pastors, adulterers, armd robbers, bad leaders, fornicators, etc. Similarly, we will not condemn islam cos of d dysfunctional understandin of its adherents. D only bigger problem there is dat muslim children are indoctrinated into dis dysfunctional thought.

Dia4, l think our challenge is wit d adherents n followers, not d religion itself. My humble appeal dia4 is dat, in d interest of tolerance, maturity and understanding, address d issues properly. If not, ur attempt at makin a case for Women Rights and against Paedophilia may simply toe a line of Anti-Islamic arguments, which l knw u did not intend. Thank U 4 reading.

It is not against Islam you illiterate monster! Nowhere in the Koran did Mohammed say people should marry babies. On top of that the Nigerian legal system does not recognize the rape of wives. So in essence, this new Constitution is turning a blind eye and passively permitting children to be forced into marriages they are neither physically able to manage to be raped by their husbands for the rest of their lives or until he tires of them and divorces them for an even younger baby. This is pathetic.

For those of you using the word Paedophilia: #dictionary definition#, Abnormal sexual attraction to children.
The Senate deliberated on the marriageable age of girls for any age even under 18, NOT ABNORMAL SEXUAL ATTRACTION TO CHILDREN. Don't get it twisted. As usual our fingers itch to comment and we soothe them too quickly on our keyboards without thinking. Deliberate on this:
1) The women in the Senate are more than 30, none of them have protested against the bill. What will you now call them, selfish sluts? Is Tinubu's wife not one of them?
2) The Christians talking about this, ask yourselves: how old was the Virgin Mary when she got married to Joseph? How old was The Virgin Mary when she gave birth to Our Lord Jesus Christ? 18? Are you sure? Historical Tradition puts her age at below 16 when she had Jesus Christ. Go do your research on that.
In our culture we know very well that when it comes to marriage there is a level of discretion and acceptance by families and immediate society, no matter the ages of the couples. A relationship is tolerated only when it is consummated in a legally accepted union. Ask your parents about their family history and y'all be shocked to know that most of your grand/great grand parents married even at the age of 9 years! Paedophillia is a crime anywhere in the world, but PLEEEEEAAAASSEE, the Senate didn't sanction that. Get your facts right.

Treasure said...

So if a 9 year old is forcefully married, the constitution wil say she's full of age, right? These senators are wicked.

God purnish both of you. Ignorant fools. Get ur facts straight,this is not allowed in islam. Its not a religious thng, this is about nigeria and her selfish lawmakers. I'm not even a muslim but I am educated. The rights of a womman under islam is far better than any given to a woman in the whole world, they are truly first class citizens in their own world, do some research, u r too intelligent for lame points like this.

Nature gave women short period of fertility. By 45 a woman cannot except by miracle conceive. Nature it is that is saying women should marry early,not men. Look around you,fertility clinics everywhere bcos some unknowledgeable people are marrying women way above menopause. For the Africans the essence of marriage is child bearing,love or no love ,that is why we reject homosexualism

Nigeria's involvement with Islam will kill her...the Islamic faith as espoused by its followers is incompatible with sanity and living right. Time Nigeria showed the Northerners the door or continue to stew in the mess their confused religion throws up from time to time. Shame on the Senators for this betrayal.

Obviously,everyone here thinks the only laws obtainable in Nigeria are constitutional.lol.so anytime the assembly makes laws,it's the constitution.issorai.....
Constitution is only an enabling law for all other laws to exist.
However,in my opinion,forgetting the fact that Yerima is the one that objected,I don't really see why the age should be 18.does it mean a 16 or 17 yr old cant decide to get married?how many of your parents married at 20 or 25.many married at 18 but does that invalidate the marriage?
What should have been done is to make it a thing of consent and make the consent of like under 16 an invalid consent because saying its 18,those northerners aren't going to obey those laws anyway and how many will be caught.people don't give no damn about the law anyway,so they should make laws in tune with the society.....
In a way,they are right.

@palatex, I dnt mean to curse or oppose you,but if I may ask why are we only social media activists, what has happen to street protests, and where are the civil liberty organisations and the pro-women's rights organisations? Words alone will not change anything about the said devilish law,if we only bark on social medias and don't move a foot abt it we're hypocrites so let the msg go round, both on BBM,facebook,twitter etc, well meaning nigerians should stand on their feet against this recent law, cause if you ask me it's coming straight from the pit of hell.

This is the height of wickdness and irritation by the senate!..if gay marriages merit 14 yrs, pedophiles merit life time in jail...Confused men (senators) that should promote girl-child education.. "Tufiawka" Nigerian senate!...Some perverts arguing blindly in favour says its better and could prevent extra-marital affairs and teenage girls sexual excapades outside wedlock. Then i wondered the genetic make-up of the brain of these individuals bringing up such irrelevant and shallow comparison, i do not have an ioata of doubt the negative quality of brain is below a day old chick#disgusting

Under 18 year olds are not mature enough to decide who rules d country and what happens to their bodies too. And to make it worse the constitution can't protect them either! How vulnerable can vulnerable children be before the leaders can do something. Well,if they can't then I am going to do anything n everything within my power to protect my nephews and nieces from themselves and the moronic Nigerian constitution.

Guyz what did you really expect from a bunch of homophobes.

The same people that think it is fair to stop two consenting adults from being together now think its okay for a man of almost 60 years of age to "marry" a 13 year old.

They have just legalized Paedophilia folks!

Ignorance breeds stupidity.

your kidding right???? the Nigerian constitution isn't made on any freaking religion or tribe. the law over rules any law from any religion if it goes against human rights..... my dear, what is wrong is wrong, islam or not. ok then, since we accommodating islam laws, lets also adhere to what Christians wants; lets get rid of all idol worshippers (traditional worshippers) and muslims..... you cannot bend the rule to suit a freaking religion. we are not operating under sharia law. and btw, we are getting there, now they've legalised under age marriage, very soon they would start talking about little girls not going to school. open your eyes!!!!! there is no excuse to this stupid law....*that girl

so does this animalistic and degrading to women and Nigeria rule apply to only muslims? or its for everybody? I want to fully understand this.... so any tom, dick or musa can wake up one morning, and open his rotten mouth and say na person baby e wan marray? hahahahahaha....I laugh at Nigeria, I cant cry, God forbid badt thing, cant waste my tears on this spit of a country we call our mother land. Rich men in Nigeria are finding ways to get their disgusting secrets out in the open. Tell me, why would any man or person want to marry a child? we say at 20 self...sometimes 22, a girl is not matured mentally for marriage, they now say, oh but for Allah, a baby still sucking breast is definitely ready for marriage. Nigeria is not an Islamic country, our laws are meant to over ride any other law that threatens the human right, well I guess not anymore. I laugh at Nigeria. God can never judge me the same way he would judge these people lie lie...it can never happen... *spits* Nigeria, I am ashamed to come from you..*waste of earth space, resources and oxygen.... *that girl.
