Nigerian artist and legislator, Banky W has approached the Nigerian government to change the laws with respect to youngster marriage in the nation.
The artist who is known for being vocal on issues in regards to human rights and the female youngster took to his Twitter page to express that the legislature ought to take care of kid marriage. As indicated by him, numerous Nigerians like to hole up behind religion for wedding children(below 18). He included that in the event that Saudi Arabia can raise the period of union with 18, at that point Nigeria ought to do the equivalent since it is the correct activity.
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
