Nigeria Has No Excuse For Child Marriage If Saudi Arabia Can Raise The Age Of Marriage To 18 - Banky W





Banky W has sparked off a debate on Twitter after he shared his thoughts on child marriage in Nigeria.

In his tweet, the singer opined that if Saudi Arabia where Mecca is located can raise the age of marriage to 18, then Nigeria has no excuse to continue the act of child marriage.

''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''
Saudi Arabia announced the ban on Child marriage in December 2019 and announced that the age of marriage for any girl is 18.

Banky's tweet has sparked off a debate on Twitter.

While some people agree with him, others are against him, saying he shouldn't be sharing his opinion on such matters.
