Chibok Visit: In Defense of President Jonathan

On Wednesday 6th of April 1994, around 8:30pm the Presidential Jet conveying President Juvenal Habyarimana of Rwanda touched the country's airspace after a trip from Tanzania.

 Few minutes before landing, the Jet was shot down by a radical terror group. The President and all his entourage died instantly thus marking the beginning of the Rwanda genocide. The President was from the 'Hutu' tribe and the assassination was believed to have been carried out by 'Tutsis' the other tribe in the country and before one could say Jack, all hell was let loose. In 100days of vengeance over one million Tutsis were slaughtered in cold blood not with guns but Machetes, Clubs and Knives. Husbands killed wives, Pastors betrayed Church members who had run to them for sanctuary. For months the reign of bloodbath continued without recess.

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?

Regular Voice of Russia contributor spoke about this, Manning and more in his latest interview with the Voice of Russia.
