Banky W has called on the Nigeria Government to take action against child marriage.
Child Marriage is a common phenomenon in Nigeria especially in the Northern part of the country.
Banky W in a tweet said that Nigerians try to hide behind religion as an excuse to marry a child.
According to him, Saudi Arabia the headquarters for Muslims have raised the age of marriage to 18 years and for that reason, Nigeria has no excuse.
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
