Orphaned girls marriage: Minister challenges Speaker's plan

KiMinister of Women Affairs, Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye, has initiated legal action against Speaker Abdulmalik Sarkindaji of the Niger State Assembly to halt his planned marriage support project for 100 orphaned girls.

The project, scheduled for May 24th, aims to assist girls who lost their parents in bandit attacks in the Mariga local government area.

Kennedy-Ohanenye expressed concerns over child rights violations and lack of consent from the girls.

She has filed a legal request for an injunction and reached out to the Inspector General of Police for support.

The case highlights tensions between government officials over the welfare of vulnerable children and raises broader questions about the ethics of such marriage support initiatives.
