Umuada Ndi-Igbo in Diaspora join in the campaign against the ambiguous section 29(4) of the Nigeria Constitution, a clause that recognizes women of less than 18 years old to be of full age thereby promoting and encouraging child marriage. Millions of girls in Nigeria are forced into marriage before they turn 15 years old. This is obviously a violation of the Child Right Act of 2003 and a total violation of the Human Right....

We are extremely concerned about the impact and consequences of child marriage on girl child such as denial of childhood and adolescence, health problems, physical and sexual abuse, all of these and much more, have profound psychosocial and emotional consequences on girls. Therefore, we write to the Senate to let them know our stand on this issue and to make it known that Umuada in Diaspora will not relent until it is corrected.
