Child Marriage Vs Islamic Law - Stella Damasus and Senator Yerima on #AJStream Network

Posted in: , , , ,

Stella Damasus and Senator Ahmed yerima went toe to toe on the Al-Jazeera show THE STREAM tackling the Underage Marriage issue in Nigeria. Not surprisingly, they went round in circles with none the wiser. One of the other guests, a lawyer named Aminu made the most sense.


  1. Whatever the reason, I don't approve of child marriage anywhere. Period!

  2. Most white people allow their 13 - 17 years old children to have boyfriends and have sex, and even get married, why are people pokenosing in this case, because it's muslims involved?

  3. @Kittie< you took the words right out of my mouth!

  4. Lol @ "with none the wiser". I shall not be watching this

  5. You should watch it. It's actually interesting.

  6. Our journalists should watch and learn. I admire the unaccusatory way the journalist got Sen Yerima to talk about his marriage.

    'scientific revelation' lol

    Myne, I agree with you. The verbosity of most of the speakers meant that points didnt come across smartly or directly so it just went round and round.
