"Senator Yerima and Constitutional Review" - By Maryam Uwais

Lawyer and child rights advocate Maryam Uwais weighs in on the child bride marriage: 
Once again, Senator Yerima is in the news, claiming Islam as the basis for his argument that a girl automatically transforms into an adult of ‘full age’ once she is married, with the attendant responsibilities that relate to the renunciation of citizenship, irrespective of her age or mental capacity. Because the Senator from Zamfara State has gone public with his personal comprehension of the Shari’a, it has become necessary to respond publicly to his utterances.
It should be pointed out, however, that several media reports on the constitutional review debate at the Senate give the impression that underage marriage has been endorsed by the Senate Chambers. Facts are that S.29 of the 1979 Constitution permits a Nigerian citizen of ‘full age’ to renounce his or her citizenship by declaration in a prescribed manner, for which purpose ‘full age’ was stated to be 18 years and above.

BACKWARDNESS: See Senator Ahmed Yerima's Defense For Girl Child Marriage

The former governor of Zamfara State has come under fire from several quarters for being the leading voice that's supporting early girlchild marriage, using religion as excuse. See his defense below:
Nigeria has many uncountable problems and do not require is early marriage. As a matter of fact early marriage is the solution to about half our problems.
"For folks who wonder if I will give my daughter(s) out in marriage at age 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I will give her out at age 6 if I want to and its not your business.
"This is because I'm a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind, Muhammad ﺻَﻠَّﻰ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻪِ ﻭَﺳَﻠَّﻢَ .
"In Islam, marriage is not only about sex, it is about family and helping each other in achieving their goals, which will be the attainment of Paradise."Do you think it is right for a man to offer a girl below 18years his joystick rather a PEN?

"I was raped in Dubai, now I face prison sentence" - Norwegian woman

Norwegian interior designer Marte Deborah Dalelv has spoken out after being handed a 16-month prison sentence in Dubai -- after she went to police to report she had been raped by a colleague. 
The 24-year-old was convicted and sentenced on charges of having unlawful se-x, making a false statement and illegal consumption of alcohol.
