The Senate decided to alter the part of the constitution that stipulates a woman shall not be qualified for marriage until she attains the 18 years. This was done after Senator Sani of Zamfara rang the alarm that stating a certain age for women before they can get married is against Islamic law.
Sani himself had in 2009 married a 13 year old Egyptian in violation of the constitution. Nigeria’s population is about 50% Muslim and 50% Christian, with terrorist groups like Boko Haram doing their best to wipe out the Christian population. (See links below)
