Nigerian president Buhari calls gay abomination
PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has rejected the gay marriage as suggested by the United States (US), saying sodomy is against Nigerian law and it is an abhorrent to her culture.
His Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, through his twitter handle said the issue of gay marriage came up in one of President Buhari’s meetings in the US, but he rejected the offer.
“The issue of gay marriage came up here yesterday, (Tuesday). PMB President Muhammadu Buhari was point blank. Sodomy is against the law in Nigeria, and abhorrent to our culture.
“Talks had shifted to another matter once the President emphatically stated Nigeria’s stand on same-sex marriage, the issue was not pushed,” he posted.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan had on January 13, 2014 signed the anti-gay marriage into law.
