Nigerian sensational singer Banky W has sparked off a debate on twitter after sharing his opinion concerning child marriage in Nigeria.
In his tweet, he said that Nigeria has no excuse whatsoever to indulge in the act of child marriage if Saudi Arabia can raise the age of marriage to 18. He wrote;
“Some Nigerians try to hide behind religion as the reason why they should be allowed to marry children.
But if Saudi Arabia – the kingdom, the headquarters i.e. Mecca, can raise the age of Marriage to 18 (because it’s the right thing to do) then Nigeria has no excuse.
#Timeup”Saudi Arabia announced the ban on Child marriage in December 2019 and announced that the age of marriage for any girl is 18”.
