ITWEETNAIJA

Helping Nigeria to tell her story...mine included...
"The Nigerian Senate has made it part of the Nigerian Constitution to give adult men the right to take any young girl as a wife, even as young as ten years old. 

Here is the senate’s new rule: “”The Nigerian Senate also resolved to alter Section 29 (a) of the constitution that stipulates that a woman shall not be qualified for marriage until she attains the 18 years as they deleted age specification for women being married from the draft constitution and left the marriage age for women open.

The Senate claimed that a woman is deemed to be “full of age” once she is married irrespective of the age she did so.

We need your help to get ACTION from the United Nations to stop the government of Nigeria from this grave injustice! 

Help our young girls grow up to reach their God-given potential.
