Nigerian legal practitioner, Boye Lemiyu, has said that persons from the age of 18 and below are too young to marry or vote as that is the age of 'experimentation'.
Wow! How long did it take for him to come up with that? 500 years? I mean come on it doesn't take a genius to determine that child marriages are slavery against children and if a soldier can die at the age of 18 fighting for his country....he should at least be able to vote in that country. Geez. I mean that's what the voting rights were about in America-but okay...I forgot we're not talking about the United States. But nevertheless the concept of allowing 18 years to vote is based on what I just said and it has NEVER been a secret. So for this attorney practitioner to say what he is saying makes me feel like Nigeria is still in 1940s and behind the Berlin wall. Nigeria really needs to catch up. But!
