Sign the petition: Stop The Nigerian Senate From Making Under-Age Marriage The Law!

share on:

I have signed the petition. I do not support the underage marriage thing at all. Here are my thoughts:

A child is a child and should have the freedom to enjoy childhood and grow without the lurking eyes of predators looking for an underage to wed. Marriage is for the matured and it should stay that way. Children wedded underage end up with more psychological trauma than they can bear. They will be abused. This cannot be!  

You should also sign the petition “United Nations: Stop The Nigerian Senate From Making Under-Age Marriage The Law!” on Change.org.

  1. It’s a shame that our senators keep making laws to satisfy the lust and greed of their colleagues only. Never has any law been made in which the national interest was the pivotal point. A big shame!

  2. Imagine…! Wait oh, is it that this leaders are devoid of what to do? Why are they so be clouded and self centered? Where do you people kept those litany of promises you professed @ your campaigns? We say NO to this illicit decision. This is suppose to be DEMOCRACY!

  3. is this not still one way of marginalizing the girl child.of all the gnawing troubles in this nation our leaders are neglecting that to what?it goes a long way to show how evil and perverted thier minds are.i hope thier daugthers are included in this.its time for national council of women society to rise up ooooo where are prof dora akunyili,okonjo iwuella.etc it might just be your baby girl oooo women lets do something.why is it always against women ? why are we so vulnerable?

  4. I am of the opinion that dis is not just about the senates, our mothers and ladies should arise and pray to God. We need God’s intervention over dis situation. Notwithstanding, we all still ve to rise and fight for our rights and that of our future generations to come.

  5. It baffles me the way and manner our so called leaders reason in this country. Has insanity overtaken their corrupt minds?why on earth should underage marriage be everly discussed on the floor of the red chamber in the first place. This I belive should pave way for the question of who should be eliminated from our governance, SENATE or HOUSE OF REP.

  6. I say no to child bride! Allow our children to grow!!! Let them have their childhood! It is shame to give under age children out in marriage. Stop treating females as third class citizens! Leave us alone!!!
