"Nigeria: Paedophile Sen. Ahmed Sani Yariman Lambasts Critics Says I Can Give Out My Daughter At The Age Of 6 For Marriage" Codewit World News, July 21, 2013 via Blazing Cat Fur (thanks to Kenneth)
Senator Ahmed Sani Yariman has lambasted his critics over his stand on the issue of early marriage. In a statement by the Senator, he said; “Nigeria has many uncountable problems and none of them is early marriage. As a matter of fact early marriage is the solution to about half of our problems. For those who wonder if I can give my daughter(s) out in marriage at the age of 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and it’s not your business.”
According the former governor of Zamfara,; “This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind, Muhammad (PBUH). In Islam, marriage is not only about sex, it is about family and helping one another in achieving their goals, which is the attainment of Paradise.”
