Star actress of both Ghana and Nigeria lineage, Yvonne Okoro has thrown her support behind women in Nigeria, who are fighting against a bill before Nigeria senate to allow girls under the age of 18 to get married. “If the girl isn’t old enough 2 (to) take part in election then she’s young enuff (enough) not to take an erection,” the actress tweeted a few days ago. Her tweet was accompanied by a campaign advertisement which read, “Give the Girl Child A Pen Not A Penis,” to make obvious her position on the issue which has gained international attention.
