Di’Ja Calls For New Age Of Consent In Nigeria

Nigerian singer and mother of two Di’Ja in an Instagram post has called for a change of age consent in Nigeria.

The current age which stands at 11 by the Nigerian constitution according to the Mavin Records singer is wrong and it is high time the government considers changing it.

With the current age standing at 11, it means an individual is allowed to consensually have sex with an 11-year-old child to without any fear of being prosecuted by the law.

”Just going to drop this here and hear your thoughts …. We have come a long way, we have advanced beyond comprehension in a short amount of time, music, lifestyle, agriculture and are still growing.

That being said there are some areas I believe needs more attention and this is one of them.

There are many ways to go around this issue but the best one is to go through it… This isn’t a fight against religion, tribe, gender but a redirection of our energies and thought processes to protect the ones that birth your nation.

If children become psychologically, physically and emotionally damaged before a certain age all you will have are adults with suppressed memories of abuse, which lead to psychological mind ware-fare.. #saveme

The easiest way to destroy any nation is by creating fear rather than respect.

The child of today isn’t the child of yesteryears”
