DOUBLE STANDARD

24 Jul

The on-going public outcry against legalisation of Child Marriage in Nigeria clearly portrays the hypocrisy of the West. United States, United Kingdom and other Western countries were quick to condemn and threaten Nigeria with sanctions when Nigeria Senate enacted a law banning gay marriage.

It is quite strange that same Western nations see nothing wrong in allowing girl child to be ‘forcefully’ carted off for marriage when she is supposed to be in school. Double standard, hypocrisy, neo-colonialism, etc. are what best described such attitudes.

One week after the said shameful ‘crime’ against the Girl Child was committed, not a single of them has condemned the act.

Western media that expressly expressed the view of Western powers and their threats to sanction Nigeria on banning of gay marriage also seem to have lost their voices. Keeping mum when atrocities are committed is in itself a crime.

Every normal human being should say ‘NO’ to ‘Child Marriage’

‘NO’ to randy and paedophile dishonourable parliamentarians, who do nothing but collect fat salaries and allowances for nothing; who prioritize the mundane instead of the betterment of our country.

Enough is Enough!

    I do trust all the ideas you’ve presented for your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies. May just you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
