Ahmed Yerima said there is no Nigerian regulation that decides how and when one ought to get married.
Talking in a meeting on Channels Television, the formal Governor who dazed numerous Nigerians in 2009 by supposedly getting drawn in to a 13-year-old Egyptian young lady, paying $100,000 to the lady of the hour’s family, demanded that he did nothing out of sorts.
The congressperson who made sense of that the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) which at first needed to attempt him had to drop the case since he did nothing out of sorts, added that there is no general public in the country that has an age section before marriage can happen.
“There is no law in Nigeria that determines when and how you get married. Muslims have Sharia, the Christians I don’t know what their doctrines say,” he said.
“If I had done anything wrong, I would have been tried in court. NAPTIP wanted to try the case and they dropped the matter because I didn’t do anything wrong.
“Whatever you are doing, if you are ignorant of the law, then you are bound to have problems. Once you do anything according to law, you don’t have a problem in any society.”
