Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus has joined a large number of Nigerian celebrities that are lending their voice against the underage children marriage law.
In her own style, Stella took the campaign to another level as she bared her mind about Senator Yerima, Patience Jonathan and other senators that supported the Girl marriage bill.
In her words Stella said, “I have read and studied all the stupid reasons that Senator Yerima and his colleagues have tabled to sponsor the bill…I can not believe the Senators of Nigeria would waste tax payers money sitting down and planning to legalize the selfish interest of some old randy men in marrying off young girls…”
The Widow star didn’t stop at Senator Yerima as she gave a piece of her mind to the Nigeria first lady, Patience Jonathan.
“Oh wait a minute, where is the first lady of Nigeria, Patience Jonathan? Why haven’t we heard your voice? You derive pleasure in lending your voice to issue that do not concern you but this issue is right under you and we expect to hear your voice because you are the mother of Nigeria…mother of the nation…If you do not stand up and put a stop to this madness, then I’m really sorry, it’s a shame!” Stella gushed.
This is one of the several protests by Nigerian celebrities against the law enabling a young Nigerian girl be married off at 13 years old.
