July 21, 2013 – Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa Against Child Bride, Underaged Girls Marriage Law In Nigeria, Requests Constitutional Amendment
Highly respected female Nigerian politician and a member of the Nigeria Federal House of Representatives representing Ikorodu Constituency in Lagos State, Hon. Abike Dabiri has raised her voice in opposition to the recently passed child bride, underaged marriage law in Nigeria.
She took to her Twitter page yesterday urging her colleagues in the house to vote on constitutional amendment.
Check out her tweets below;
“I have covered first hand many cases of VVF, a terrible medical condition that affects underaged children forced into marriage and early sex
Why then would we make a law that will destroy our girls rather than build and educate them?
I certainly will oppose such and hopefully majority of my colleagues in the House of Representatives when we vote on constitutional amendment”
Hopefully her colleagues and other like-minded Nigerians will join her for this cause.
