Senator Yerima And His 13 Year Old Bride by Boboribo: 1:00am On Apr 18, 2010

THERE are strong indications that the Senate will on resumption from the Easter break debate the recent marriage of Senator Sanni Yerima to a 13-year-old girl from Egypt.
Speaking with Sunday Tribune on condition of anonymity, a source at the Senate disclosed that  “the upper legislative body will soon deliberate on the marriage recently contracted between Yerima, a former governor of Zamfara State and  serving Senator to an underage girl from Egypt.

“The development is very very wrong and lacks any sign of morality. It is a clear case of child abuse which we have been fighting against. It is illegal and should be condemned by well meaning and right thinking Nigerians,” the highly influential Senator declared.

The lawmaker noted that “the law of the land frowns at this kind of marriage which is a clear case of child abuse. It is embarrassing to the Senate and indeed the National Assembly and that is why the issue would be tabled before the Senate and decision will be taken.”

Condemning the marriage, the federal lawmaker stated that, “the development becomes more embarrassing considering the calibre of the Senator involved, who should know better  as a former state chief executive and a serving lawmaker.”

Former governor of Zamfara State and a serving Senator, Alhaji Sani Yerima, few weeks ago got married to a 13-year-old girl from Egypt.

Sunday Tribune reliably gathered that the marriage ceremony between the senator and the  minor was not allowed to take place in Egypt because of an existing law which bars minors from getting married, hence, the ceremony was shifted to Nigeria.

In 2003, the National Assembly passed a law on child rights which supercedes the provisions under the Sharia legal code. The law clearly forbids marrying girls under the age of 18.

How low and lower can the apostle of Sharia go?  Does sharia law actually support his choice of a kid as a wife?

I think it's disgusting. Why would any sane man prefer to marry a child? All under the banner of being "muslim", of course.

Leave Islam out of it!
The age of consent in the Vatican is 12
and in Spain, it is 13

So tell your Catholic friends to explain that and the non-terrorist bomb blast in Yenagoa yesterday

I don't know if he would or would not
And what other reasons do you have to despise him?

By the way, I would give my 13-year old daughter to a serious man
rather than allow boys of nowadays to just continue to "test-drive" her!

The man is a Muslim – did you not hear of how their ‘Prophet’ married a 6 year old girl called Aiyesha and consummated the marriage by the time she was 9.

In Islam, the sin of Shirk is one of the worst things that a person can commit (i.e Idolatry). Nevertheless, this adoration of making things okay and proper if Muhammad did it overrules the correct mind of his worshippers. To this end, you will see many young men growing huge beards (because the prophet did it); Asian men will dye their hair with Heanna (because the prophet did it); they also try to copy his mode of eating with the thumb and first finger (because their prophet did it)………. plllllllllllllllllllluease – if this is not ‘idolatry’ please tell me what it is??

In the mind of a Mulsim, he or she must 'Islamise the world'.  This wretched man will not see that he has done any harm.  He is the most vile type of man anyone could come across.  For those of you who think it is fine, would you leave your pre-teen daughter in his vicinity? 

This a form of legal prostitution, but the twit will probably get away with it because money rules and he can rely on the Quoran to make his action right by siting the example  - Yes, you have got it !!! - The 'Prophet did it' and I copying his example. angry sad lipsrsealed embarassed I pray the good Lord will give him a heart attack as he heaves and clambers atop that girl to claim his 'prize'. sad angry angry
