July 22, 2013 – 35 Nigerian Senators Who Voted For Underage Marriage Bill (Names & Pictures)

The names and the pictures of the 35 Nigerians senators who voted in favour of the controversial underage marriage bill last Tuesday has been revealed.

According to Section 29(4) (b), ” any woman who is married shall be deemed to be of full age.” It means that even a child if married can be seen to be of full age and as such can renounce citizenship. The committee proposed that that provision be deleted.

When it was put to vote, 2/3 of members present voted for it which meant it was deleted.

Underage Marriage Bill, How Nigerian Senators Voted

Senator Yerima who married a beautiful 13-year-old girl kicked against it. He mobilised his fellow Muslims Senators to threaten to cause confusion on the senate floor.

After Yerima continued his objection, Senate President David Mark called for another vote.
At this point the Senators who were in favour of this clause could no longer muster 2/3 of the votes that will retain Section 29, Clause 4 (b).

Senators still voted 60 votes to 35 votes for the clause to be deleted, but it did not satisfy the 2/3 requirement and so, according to the senate version, “any woman who is married shall be deemed to be of full age.”

Due to the sensitive nature of the bill, some senators didn’t bother to vote while some abstained completely.

Yerima tried to thank Senator David Mark for granting his colleagues victory in the 2nd voting, he was shouted down and booed by those who opposed the bill.

It’s very obvious Senator Yerima who married an underage girl few years back is the driving force behind this bill. He must be stopped.

How can the selfishness of one man affect other innocent girls in Nigeria?

It’s time for right-minded Nigerians to wake up #NO TO CHILD BRIDE.

Those who think dt Islam is berbaric 4 suporting under age mariage shold b reminded dt those who passed d bil of same sex marriage in America & other christain led countries are not muslims. Let them judge btween same sex & under age mariage which is Satanic & babaric. even at dt age u calld under age, @ 13 for a example, most of ds young girls has already know all about it.

  10. Nigeria has many uncountable problems andnone of them is early marriage. As a matter offact early marriage the solution to about half of our problems. For those who wonder if I cangive my daughter(s) out in marriage at the age of 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and itsnot your business. This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best ofmankind, Muhammad ﺻَﻠَّﻰ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻪِ ﻭَﺳَﻠَّﻢَ .
    In Islam, marriage is not only about sex, it is about family and helping one another in achieving their goals, which is the attainment of Paradise. In Islam, a girl can be given out inmarriage as early as 6 years old, but consummation of the marriage can only be done when the girl becomes physically mature and she gives her consent to it because unlike English law, it is not permissible for a man to rape his wife in Shari’ah Law. So what can anybody tell me? I live in a city where young girls at the age of 12 have already became serial fornicators andcannot count the number of man they’ve had sex with. I live in a City where primary school children dis virgin themselves behind toilets on Valentine day. I live in a city where young girls flood the street at night looking for men that would give them N500 to have sex with them. I live in a city where parents send their daughters out overseas to prostitute and send dollars down. I live in a City where Government officials pick undergraduates from University car parks with Coastal Buses to wild sex parties. I live in a city where abortion is so common that even a Chemist shore owner can perform abortion with just N2,500. These are your daughters, and this should worry you and not Yerima’s private matters. So ask me again why I support early marriage and I will slap the Jinn out of your head”.
    – Senator Ahmad Sani Yarima…I’m proud of u and ur collegues dat support u…….PROUDLY MUSLIM

  11. Their plans won’t succeed IJN, both same sex and early marriage.
    But Wait oo, wot ℓ̊ actually attracted me 2comment is i don’t use to bliv dis but right hia, ℓ̊ see islamic brethren confirm it. Did prophet Muhammed actually did dat tin ni?? I mean S*X!!! LMAO, sincerely, laffin in hebrews. Well, its not bad shą#lipsealed…. But me hail JESUS oo evn Apostle Paul.
    #teamsaynotopremarital,samesex&earlymarriage

  12. Any woman who will give out her child to those ritualist called senator in the name of marriage will forever know no peace…..that is why the song of Idris Abdukareem which says “Nigeria scartter-scartter is true,,,oh God! Come and rescue this country before it finally collaps.

  13. Ds Yerima indeed is a very useless man. And look at the faces of his supporters. They actually look very irresponsible. No water, no job, no good hospital or quality education; instead of debating on how to transform lives in Nigeria, these northern goat senators’ problem is seeking legalization of sex with girl child. May God visit them all with the anger He visited the Egyptians with. We Nigeria females say, “NO TO FEMALE CHILD ABUSE”. Alternatively,Yerima & co, sleep wit your own daughters; it already seems u are sleeping wit your own daughters. FOOLISH SEX DRUNK NORTHERM ISLAMIST SOCALLED SENATORS.

  14. ALL THIS USELESS 35 SO CALLED SENATORS AND TO ANY ONE WHO WILL BE IN SUPPORT OF THIS NONSENSE THE GOLDEN RULE FOR ALL OF YOU.I EARNESTLY PRAY THAT RAPIST WILL VISIT YOUR DAUGHTERS FROM 1YER-17YRS IN YOUR FAMILY,BECAUSE HAVING SEX WITH SUCH AGES YOU CALLED LEGAL MARRIAGE ARE EQUALLY THE SAME AS TO RAPE.
    I STILL PRAY THAT ALL OF YOU WHO ARE IN LINE WITH THIS EVIL,YOUR LOVELY DAUGHTERS WILL NOT ESCAPE TRIPLE RAPE THIS YEAR.

    Evil that men do lives with them and not after them.amen.

  15. Lets be reasonable for a moment ppl. Democracy is govt of the ppl by the ppl and goethe ppl. Part of the right of anyone in a democratic setting is do speak your mind or give your opinion regardless of how stupid it may sound. Mr. Yerima has the right to propose the bill just a much as gay right wish gay law is passed. Citizens may not like it but I am sure that the law does not force any parent to give up his/ her9yr old in marriage to old man or age equivalent. In US for instance, Law was passed in 1993 giving right to women to walk around with pant or trouser without wearing top ( TOPLESS WOMEN). They can have their boobs out. Despite signing the bill, no one practisedeit untill rently. Last August, 2 females wearing blue jeans, no bra. Their top is naked like a boy. This happened in nyc. They were aproached by police who warned them to wear cloth. They refused. Instead they invoked their right to walk topless. Police officer could not belive what he saw. He was confused and asked his superior. He was told that it is legal. Therefore he can not arrest the ladies. The law did not force all women to go topless but whoever wishes to exercise her right can do so without penalty. Large number of american opposed the bill but what can they do. Concerning underage marriage, I think the senators should outline conditions. In islam, it is haram ( forbidden)to have sexual intercourse with a girl before she becomes a woman ( puberty). Bashing islam and all muslims wil not cut it. It might be great if many non muslims here intelligently defer this bill rather than cursing prophet, islam and muslims.

  16. Even if you religion tells to marry under age ,don,t u reason well? How can u be having sex with a kid? Dammm! This is wickedness.. If i catch any of you dating or marrying my little sister with type of law i will cut of his dick and burn his ass in the fire !! Muslims are you from God or satan? Chai we don tire 4 una oo.

  17. THIS IS ISLAMIC LAW IN ACTION.THE TEST OF THE ISLAMIZATION OF NIGERIA VIA DEMOCRATIC PROCESS,WHERE MAJORITY CARRIES THE DAY,IS INDEED IN PROGRESS.A LEAF HAS BEEN BORROWED FROM EGYPT.THE 2015 AGENDA OF NORTHERN MOSLEM PRESIDENT FOR THE LAUNCHING OF JIHAD VIA THE SENATE/HOUSE OF REPS IS IN ERNEST.SOLUTION:(1)BALANCE THE IMBALANCE IN THE SENATORIAL/HOUSE OF REPS.SEATS BETWEEN THE SOUTH & NORTH VIA THE CREATION OF MORE SEATS IN THE SOUTH. (2)CALL FOR NATIONAL CONFERENCE WHERE ALL ETHNIC NATIONALITIES IN NIGERIA WILL SEAT AND DECIDE THEIR MEMBERSHIP IN THE NIGERIA UNION BEFORE THE 2015 ELECTION.

  18. 5. Sen. Akinyelure Ayo (Ondo Central, Labour Party .THIS MAN
    IS NOT A GOOD YORUBA MAN VERY USELESS MA

  19. This is cry for help GOd. If this is right B4 u let this bill come to stay but if it is not God visit them like u visited pharaoh in jesus name Amen. Too bad !

  20. Nigeria is at risk with these kinds of people in the government, what a shame, I just do not understand how all these primitives manage to be in the government , all these mekuturu mekao, who suppose to go and have their seat at Oyingbo market,may be they miss their way to the house of sinate, they look like vultures. whoever sees these people, please give them my message that they need to return to their camp at oyingbo to join other ALUMOGERI THERE WITH ONE BOW AND WALKING STICK. I WISH YOU ALL PACK ALL YOUR BELONGING TONIGHT AND GO TO JUMP INTO THE OCEAN TONIGHT, see you in hell

  21. This is beyond words; This is the height of demonic attack on our children, people and nation. Where are the “MEN” of this nation? Where are our fathers and men of valor? Where are our protectors, God-fearing, loving men of our land? Why is Nigeria left to these demon-possessed, heartless, greedy few? It is time to flush out the devils. It is time to seriously go on our knees and pray out these demons out of power and the earth. Nigeria is like hell on earth with no roads, good or safe schools, no jobs, no electricity, the poor are neglected, no empathy, absolutely nothing to boast about. The wealthy care about themselves and the common man is left to his demise. Kidnapping is the lucrative crime and the govt looks on; so long as they are protected by their own security. Now these ugly fat demonic senators have the nerve to pass such bill. What a shame on the rest of the powers-that-be for allowing this to happen. Let the children of Nigeria cry-out to God in their respective homes, let mothers lament and wail to God for the heads of these demons, let our church leaders turn away from greed (money) and defilement and cry to God for our nation. Let there be a hunger and fight for change. Enough is enough. Let God arise, and his enemies, our enemies perish. Who will stand in the gap for a nation such as this? we have got to spiritually and physically take the demons who have positioned themselves as leaders in our nation out. Nothing is impossible for Almighty God to do as long we are willing to go to battle with him. I pray that these senators begin to die and the fear due God returns to Nigeria.

  22. THIS ARE SET OF MAD PEOPLE, SATANIC AND ANIMALS. I THINK JONATHAN SHOULD QUIT BORN OF THE SAME FEATHER,THOSE OF YOU WHO TRY TO PASS THE LAW YOUR FAMILLY WILL NEVER BE HAPPY, CALMITIES WILL USE YOUR HOUSE AS A RESTING PLACE. OLOSHI GBOGBO.

They add nothing to the economy anyway but rather milk the resources from other parts of the country and then pay us back with hassles and a lot of wahala.I just feel like doing something to this people. They look so ugly. Stupid old hags who all need to jump straight into their graves.Trying to legalise peadophilia in Nigerian is simply taking the mickey.

    • You are a goat to even make such comments, idiots and confused barbaric morons like you are the ones who promote racism, did the prophet promote rape? Because if ur stupid block head doesn’t know, it is called rape when you have sexual intercourse with a child and minor whose internal organs are still trying to develop!you do Not support prositution, but you support rape. May God shine the light of wisdom upon your eyes or I have to tell you, you are walking blind and alone and foolishly depending or words and evil branded leaders.
