This is pretty disturbing as one watches this. The former Zamfara State Governor and current Senator, Sani Yerima, whose marriage to a 13-year-old girl drew widespread outrage in 2009, has openly pressed the Senate to reverse a vote to outlaw underage marriages.
He explains that it is against Islamic law to say anyone that is married is underage because once you’re married, you are of age. Weird logic, but please be my guest and watch.
