Nigerian women condemn Ahmed Sani ex-Zamfara gov's marriage to minor, a 13-year old Egyptian girl

Criticisms continued to trail the alleged marriage of former governor of Zamfara State, Senator Ahmed Sani to a 13-year old Egyptian girl.

The former governor reportedly paid $100,000 as bride price to the parents of the minor.

But in a statement made available to our correspondent in Lokoja on Monday, the National Council of Women Societies condemned the action of the senator, describing it as shameful.

Speaking through its National President, Hajia Ramatu Usman, the umbrella women's organisation said Sani's action did not come to Nigerian women as a surprise because, according to them, many northern governors had been using religion as an excuse for not passing the Child Rights Act.

She further stated that the council had been mounting a campaign against young girls being given out for marriage at ridiculously early ages of 12 or 13 years, adding that the action was against all reasoning.

According to Usman, "Vesico vaginal fistula has been attributed to under age marriages due to the practice of early marriages in Nigeria, where young girls are given out for marriage at ridiculously early ages as 12 or 13 years. They get pregnant and when they are ready to deliver, their pelvises are so small for the babies to pass through.

"The baby gets stuck in the birth canal and in some cases dies. The baby's head wears a hole between the birth canal and the bladder (VVF) or rectum (RVF).

"So, when the dead baby is eventually delivered, the young mother is left with a dead child and she begins to drain urine and/or stool continuously. She develops sores on her skin and smells horribly from the constant drips of urine and stool on her clothes."

The body therefore advised parents to avoid giving out their under age daughters in marriage in order to check cases of this health risk, which it said is particularly common in the northern part of Nigeria.

The statement further said, "It is a shame that while we are seeking ways to view closely what pushes parents into giving out their underage daughters into early marriages, a former governor of a state is celebrating this act of child trafficking and abuse."

It also called on well-meaning Nigerians to mount pressure on northern governors to immediately commence work on the Child Rights Act.

These are the people we leave to run our country. Its not surprising that the development of Nigeria is forgotten. If you spend time contemplating on indulging in these types of things. then none of us should wonder why Nigeria is neglected by the leadership we have. Install the right leadership and these things would either be eliminated or reduced drastically. Emotional outburst is ok but at the end we have the right to shape the future of our country. If we despise these type of acts, then we should move away from electing PERSONALITIES and Seek out Leadership that would spend hours and seconds of their time working on building Nigeria and Nigerians without resting. 2011 is just around the corner. I know how I am directing my energy to stop these type of activities. I will support a New and Refresh Vision for Nigeria.  I see that in the horizon . Search and ye shall find.  To you Madam Usman, go form a patrnership with this candidate at www.anewnigerianow.net. I don't believe he would stand for such a callous choice of exploiting the innocent and poor.

Thank God Islamic women in Nigeria are finally standing up to  these monsters and child molesters who would  rather mess with little girls they can manipulate than find grown women like those protesting this abuse.
Men with low self esteem.

That is what backward thinking people do. How can any sane person practise something as primitive as sharia in these modern times? It is a dead giveaway for a primitive mindset, the type that see's no crime in "marriage" to a child.

Ahmed Sani is a primitive paedophile who should be serving several life terms in jail. angry

The man is a ra'pist.

Shut d , fu, k up !

Why are you blaming him, shame on you all, instead of finding out, and at least request for pics of the girl, 13 years old, what'd there? Besides she is Egyptian, not Nigerian, so you people just pop up with sort of nonsense and start accusing him for nothing. I still wonder why people will not think at all before posting something here. His religion give him right to do that, and you have different faith/believe with his religion, so why the blame.

And unfortunate some go to the extend of start using abusive words to Islam/Muslims, something we hate to see in Nairaland.

Please for the sake of mutual understanding of people/religious right, you better stop that. May be you can talk when you see the pics and found out that it happened to be a very small girls or something like that.

Religion is now an excuse for child abuse?? I shudder to think what he does to a child he bought for $100,000 behind closed doors. I do not care for pictures. WE believe it because it is not far fetched for some kind of people. undecided

A thirteen year old has NO business having intimacy or being in a marriage. PERIOD.

13 is the age of consent in the North so it is legal. You can question the morality of what he's done or the age threshold set by law but it's not illegal.

This is a potential case of libel if this story is untrue

But if it's really true, then it is a matter of deep concern

By Nigerian and International standard and law, as at the last time I checked, age 13yr is still a child

This 'Nigerian Senator' would be treated as a Paedophile in Western countries and even placed on Sex Offender Register sharp-sharp

It is disgraceful that this is the calibre of people we selected elected as Senators

Go save Nigeria!

There are desperate parents out there among us who even love-vendor their children in order to 'survive'

The problem I personally see here is the apparent lack of judgement on the part of our respected and well-beloved Senator

Only a monster would not only think of putting his dirty thing in a little girl but would actually do it. Those depraved monsters who set the age of marital consent so low so as to take advantage of poor young girls will meet their Karma eventually and karma is a bitch.

Just look at the eyes of the beast.
