Amos Tauna,  Per Second News,  Karina Northern Christians  in the  19 Northern States and  Abuja under the aegis of the Northern  States Christian Association of Nigeria(Northern CAN), have warned Emirs  against forcefully  engaging Christian minors into forceful marriages in the region.

Reverend Yakubu Pam  gave the warning  shortly after his election as the new chairman of the association in Kaduna on  Friday.

Child marriage in Nigeria often ends a girl’s education, exposes her to domestic violence and grave health risks from early childbearing and HIV, and traps her in poverty, Human Rights Watch said recently.

The leadership of the association also faulted Nigeria’s membership of the Coalition of Islamic Countries against terrorism.

The association noted that there was the need for the govetnment to assure innocent Nigerian Christians that they would not be victims in the event that ISIS terrorist  attacked Nigeria for being a member.

“Do Nigeria have the capacity to fight back like other members,” they said.

Pam took over from Archbishop Peter Jatau as the new Chairman of the more than 40-year-old  association.

Firebrand Pam, a former Chairman of the Plateau CAN, once had a  brush with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, for daring to suggest that the President’s handling of the Plateau crisis hinted of bias, during the meeting he conveyed for Plateau State leaders at the beginning of his visit to the state in 2004.

    You can imagine the rubbish.. destroying young females from early age and calling it what?
    Can’t be in support of this trash, if it’s religion or what so ever, Christians is out of it.

  2. I wonder why they would forcefully marry a young female Christian off. Is it cus of money or the girl child means nothing to them? Probably just a means to gain property.
    Abeg make una allow this little girls to grow up, go to school and learn how to become a better person in the society, then she can choose who she would like to spend the rest of her life with.
    Not to push her out of the side like say she tire you to train. Make una respect una self ooh, make I no vex.
