CAN seeks adoption of 18 years as minimum age

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged lawmakers to consider 18 years as the minimum age for marriage in the ongoing constitution review.

CAN President, Olasupo Ayokunle, said this, yesterday while presenting the position of CAN before the Constitution Review Committee for the South-West Zone in Akure Centre.

Ayokunle, who was represented by the Ondo State CAN Chairman, John Oladapo, lamented that the girl-child had been exposed to series of indecent tradition and circumstances.

Aside the myriad of child abuse against the girl-child, he said it would also avail the female folk to maximally explore inclusiveness and participation in all spheres of her growth to adulthood.

“We recommend that the constitution shall bring clarity and emphasis to recognising and affirming 18 years as the age of maturity and that for sexual consent,” he said.
