Perhaps the secret intention behind the entire matter is to never allow a girl to grow into a woman for she will then truly have her own mind and realize that she has a choice to make. How easy to manipulate a little girl into a situation with the excuse of saving her from prostitution and sin .It is all about control .What truly baffles me since long though is that none seems to remember the little boys. Has anyone of those people thought about the fact that they too might engage in *sinful* activities if they remain unmarried ?
In my own opinion the argument is nothing but idiotic,be cause it is not marriage that prevents going astray but the education,example,healthy love and upbringing a child receives from his/her parents.
One thing about the argument in favour of girl-child marriage is that it is so narrow-minded to see the girl-child as first, a sex tool and second, an oven for baking babies. Have these people paused to consider how the babies born by these girls are being brought up? Surely, the baby-mother, knowing little or next to nothing about everything, especially a serious thing such as bringing up a child, (she is just a child herself, for God’s sake!) ends up sending out into the larger society children brought up by a child that will never attain the psychological maturity to fit into society. The results are the scars we are now at the pain of living with: Ahmed Yerima and the Boko Haram Boys. Nobody brought up by a real woman will think and act in the manner of such trash.

I believe if there’s any kind of God, it wouldn’t be in any of us not you or me but just this little space in between. If there’s any kind of magic in this world, it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something.

Until you see and hear the ”Charge of the Light Brigade” and witness the courage of ”the famous 600”, you know nothing.
Until you see brave men fight, suffer and die for a noble and just cause, you know nothing.
Until you see the Fulani horseman in the full fury of a cavalry charge, you have seen nothing.
Until you hear the cries, see the tears, read the words and feel the pain of a wounded, tormented and broken soul, you have seen nothing.
All these unseen things inspire and move. They stir the spirit and they, in turn, are stirred by passion. They ARE passion. They breath and bleed passion. And passion is the essence of life. It is the food of the compassionate and sensitive and the fuel of noble and courageous souls.
It is the stuff of which gods and the immortal are made. It is our passport to posterity ,our key to future Glory.

Every person deep inside feels something. Why? Because we are human. Our pasts do not define us nor shape us. It is our mistakes that do the shaping. But even so, every night when we go to sleep, we are ignorant of our pasts and our mistakes. Dreams, the peaceful oblivion where we lay every night. If only our dreams came true. Expressing our thoughts and our beliefs helps us achieve these dreams and, ultimately, allow us to be ourselves. And that is exactly what I plan on doing: Being myself
