A nation of paedophiles

A nation of paedophiles, By Femi Fani-Kayode

"Every other Muslim country in the world, including Indonesia, Pakistan, Malaysia, Egypt, Jordan, Senegal, the Sudan, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Palestine, United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh, Qatar, Bahrain, Dagestan, Albania, Bosnia, Somalia, Algeria, Libya, Mali, Azerbijhan and Syria, have, specifically, banned child marriage, paedophilia and child rape in their various constitutions and laws and some have declared it ''repugnant'', ''unacceptable'' and ''unislamic''. Are these people not Muslims too? "

Senator and former Governor Ahmed Sani, the Yerima Bakura, has finally had his way. The Nigerian Senate has bowed to his will and agreed to be silent about the age that young girls can get married in Nigeria. What this means once it is followed through and enshrined in our laws and Constitution is that girls that are as young as nine years old, provided they are deemed as having been ''physically developed enough'' by their suitors, could be lawfully bedded and married in our country. That is the sordid level that we have now, as a people and as a nation, degenerated to. I weep for Nigeria and, perhaps more appropiately, I weep for the Nigerian girl-child. Yet we have no choice but to live with this new reality and to accept it as it is. After all, our representatives in the sacred halls of the Senate were not sensitive enough or ''man enough'' to shoot down the whole thing, to stand firmly against the unholy agenda and to say boldly and firmly that, ''come what may'', our children must be protected from carnal knowledgeual deviants and reprobates.

And since the Senate, in its infinite wisdom, has now endorsed the "Paedophile Charter", which essentially seeks to make it lawful and constitutional for very young girls to get married and to have carnal knowledge, it is my view that we have now become a nation of perverts and paedophiles. Every Nigerian should bow his or her head in shame because what the Senate did and seeks to do in the future, by beginning the process to amend our Constitution in order for it to cater for the filthy appetite and godless fantasies of child molestors and carnal knowledgeual predators is sordid, ungodly and unforgiveable.

Surely, we ought to be seeking to protect our children and not seeking to bed them. Yet it appears that not everyone shares our outrage and collective sense of shame. One Uche Ezechukwu made the following contribution which went viral on the social media networks and which I think speaks volume.
According to him, whatever was done in the time of old can as well be done in modern times – no matter how crude.
I am appalled by these words. The truth is that I have never heard such a self-serving and specious argument in defence of the philosophies and beliefs of Senator Ahmed Sani, who married a 12-year- old Egyptian girl, as this one. Ahmed Sani himself could not have argued it better. Yet I think that it is an utter shame. And this is more so because the individual that is putting the argument is supposedly a Christian. The Old Testament of the Holy Bible prescribes ''stoning'' for adultery but that does not mean that Christian countries, or indeed secular states like Nigeria, should stone adulterers.

Neither does it mean that we should preserve the institution of slavery or crucify petty thieves simply because the Holy Bible endorsed both practices in the Old Testament. We must accept the fact that the interpretation of biblical and koranic provisions are evolutionary and are ever changing. Jesus Himself said ''laws are made for man and not man for laws''. The suggestion that paedophilia has any place in any modern and decent society simply because it was once practised in the distant past is not only a despicable argument but it also does not make any sense. After all, cannibalism and child and human sacrifices were once widely practised and were held as being perfectly acceptable throughout the world as well but that does not mean that we should practice any of those terrible vices today.

The young man, Uche Ezechukwu, who appears to be defending child rape in the name of islam, should either let someone lay with and ''marry'' his own six or seven-year-old daughter or he should seal his lips forever and stop trying to defend the indefensible. His assertions, and I daresay those of Senator Sani and anyone that shares their primitive views, are not only utterly immoral and reprehensible but they are also intellectually dishonest. I say this because the truth is that there is NO Muslim country in the world that has adopted the "paedophile charter" where six or seven year olds can marry and be bedded except for possibly Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Every other Muslim country in the world, including Indonesia, Pakistan, Malaysia, Egypt, Jordan, Senegal, the Sudan, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Palestine, United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh, Qatar, Bahrain, Dagestan, Albania, Bosnia, Somalia, Algeria, Libya, Mali, Azerbijhan and Syria, have, specifically, banned child marriage, paedophilia and child rape in their various constitutions and laws and some have declared it ''repugnant'', ''unacceptable'' and ''unislamic''. Are these people not Muslims too?
Like Christianity and Judaism, Islam is a noble, pure, honourable and ancient faith that seeks to protect the weakest and most vulnerable in society, including children. No one should use the misinterpretation of its provisions to try to justify or rationalise what is essentially depraved, shameful, disgusting and barbaric behaviour and the most sordid and filthy expression of carnal knowledgeual deviance and perversion. Even animals do not marry or bed their own infants. The bitter truth is that paedophiles have no place in any civilised society.

I am constrained to say that in the light of their "yes" vote to child marriage and their green light to paedophilia, every single member of the Nigerian Senate should bow his or her head in utter shame and should be compelled to offer their own infant and under age daughters for marriage. I repeat, they have turned us into a nation of perverts and paedophiles.

Senate to revisit controversial child marriage law –Mark
…Says, lawmakers were blackmailed

The Sun, July 25, 2013

From ADETUTU FOLASADE-KOYI, Abuja

Senate President David Mark yesterday admitted that his colleagues were blackmailed along religious lines into reversing an earlier vote on the controversial section 29 (4) (b) of the 1999 Constitution which deals with under-age marriage.

He disclosed this when he received a coalition of women Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)

Mark dropped the hint that the Senate will revisit the controversial section 29 (4) (b) once the required votes of 73 senators are secured for another round of voting on the matter.

Said Mark: “I agree with you in all you have said here. Why we voted publicly was so that everybody will know the stand of every senator on every issue. I think the problem is not whether we can still revisit Section 29(4) (b)  or not, that is not the issue.

“It is whether we can get the number to be able to delete it. With all due respect, the entire Senate is being castigated. There was and there is still a big misunderstanding of what the Senate is trying to do.

“We are on the side of the people. That was why we put it that we should delete it; that is what the people want. So, we in fact, we are the first people to take the right step in the direction of deleting it. It didn’t go through because of other tangential issues that were brought in on the floor of the Senate that are totally inconsequential and the unconnected issues that were brought in.

“When we voted at first, we had 85 votes, we were a total of 101, that was the maximum we had, 85 voted, and we just needed about 73, six abstained and did not vote.  There was hardly any dissenting voice.

“But once it got mixed up with so many other issues, we couldn’t get the 73 anymore. First  of all, I think the castigation outside is done out of misunderstanding by the general public, because a religious connotation was brought into it, it became a very sensitive issue.

“You must agree with me that in this country, we try as much as possible not to bring in issues that involve faith to our floor or in the chamber. But what is good for a Christian is also good for a Muslim. It is not for a sect or religion.

“I think the bottom line is when people get sufficiently educated, we can do a rethink and the Senate agrees, we go back and see whether we can get the required number once more, because that is the solution.

“Let me also talk about my brothers and sisters who are senators, who were probably blackmailed. That s the fact because it was in the open. They were simply blackmailed because on that day if they didn’t do what they did, nobody knows what the outcome or the consequences will be today; because people will be saying that this man, you are a Muslim and you did not vote to protect your Islamic interest.

“If we don’t hit the nail squarely on the head, we may never get it right. All of them voted at first, but it was okay. Section 29(4) (b) has to do with renunciation of citizenship and nothing to do with religion, but because religion was brought in, it was difficult for people to do otherwise.

“If anything else, I think the people should praise us because we are the ones in the forefront of saying remove it.  We are now castigated and pictured as paedophiles; that we are raping people.

“Pastors and priests are calling and saying ‘you are sitting there and you are passing a bill that we can rape a six-year old girl…’ It is unbelievable!

“The important thing is that if we take a step which is wrong, we can retrace it. Again, I must emphasise the fact that 60 senators voted that it should be deleted, but we needed 73. So, we need to convince 13 more Senators to be able to vote and then we get the required number of 73.

“I want to sympathise with some of the senators who had been blackmailed to reverse their positions. When they first voted, they took the right step. But this is not the time to apportion blames. It is the time to find the way forward…”

Earlier, Minister for Women Affairs, Hajiya Zainab Maina, in company with two former ministers, Mrs Oby Ezekwesili and Mrs Josephine Anenih, wife of the former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Mrs Maryam Uwais, led a coalition of women NGOs assembled under the aegis of Gender and Constitution Reform Network (GECORN) to the Senate yesterday.

GERCON demanded that Senate revisit the vote by deleting the section and urged the leadership to demonstrate both political will and commitment to the attainment of gender equity in Nigeria.

Maina yielded the floor to WRAPA Coordinator, Mrs. Saadatu Mahdi, to present the group’s position paper which demanded Senate reverse itself on the clause.

Said Mahdi: “ From the moment of birth, the first gift every Nigerian receives from the state is citizenship. To protect this sacred gift of citizenship, we advocate for the deletion of section 29 (4) (b) of the 1999 Constitution.

“It’s the desire of all Nigerians, who treasure our citizenship, to remove this provision that provides that young Nigerian girls, who are not old enough to vote or to obtain a driver’s licence, are somehow old enough to renounce their citizenship…

“Citizenship is and must remain gender-neutral and safeguarded from any cultural, religious or social interpretations or connotations. The harm of maintaining section 29 (4) (b), which is open to manipulation arising from its ambiguity, far outweighs any arguable benefits a few females might arguably obtain.

“We expect the Senate, in particular, and our legislators, in general, to operate from the view of ensuring that the aggregate social good is paramount in all decision-making…We enjoin the Senate leadership to use every avenue within its rules of procedure to cause a revisit of the vote on section 29 (4) (b).”

The group dismissed Senator Sani Ahmed Yerima’s claims that deletion of the clause negated Islamic law. “Contrary to the position conveyed for the retention of the section, that under Sharia,  a girl, once married, automatically assumes full mental and intellectual capacity, we posit that there is certainly no unanimity of positions on such matters among Islamic jurists.

Also speaking, Ezekwesili commended the Senate for being pro-active by deleting the clause with the first vote before it was reversed by a protest from Senator Yerima. “We must give kudos to the Ekweremadu Committee that the clause be deleted and it was first deleted.”
