Leading western countries piled pressure on the Federal government, yesterday, following President Goodluck Jonathan’s signing of the Same-Sex Prohibition Act 2014. The latest country is the United States of America, whose Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr James Entwistle threatened that the United States will scale down its support for HIV/AIDS and anti-malaria programmes in response to the Federal Government’s position on the gay rights issue.


Member countries of the European Union and Canada have expressed their objection to the law but United States Ambassador to Nigeria said he was worried about “the implications of the anti-same sex marriage law which seems to restrict the fundamental rights of a section of the Nigerian population.”

This came as a former Nigerian Ambassador to US, Dahiru Suleiman, yesterday, described homosexuality and lesbianism as “animalistic and degrading to humanity.”

Also yesterday Christians in the northern part of Nigeria under the aegis of Christian Association of Nigeria in the 19 northern states an Abuja, hailed President Goodluck Jonathan for signing into law the anti-gay bill, urging him to ignore criticisms from Western nations, saying all religions in the country are united in their condemnation of same-sex marriage.

In a reaction to the recent move of government to outlaw homosexuality from this country, the Public Relations Officer of Northern CAN, Elder Sunday Oibe told Vanguard that Christians from the North and their counterparts in other religions have unanimously expressed gratitude to the president and the National Assembly for passing the Anti-Same Sex Marriage despite opposition from Europe and the US.

Speaking to news men in Abuja, yesterday, the American envoy said his interpretation of the new law was that “it could negatively affect the nation’s fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic”. Although the US envoy denied that his country plans to impose sanctions on Nigeria, he said: “We and other donors are looking at the issue of funding for HIV/AIDS. As you know, we put millions of dollars in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

“Although I am not a lawyer, I read the bill and it seems to me that it may put some restrictions on what we can do to help fight HIV/AIDS in this country. These are the issues we are looking at as we consider the law.”

The signing of the Same sex Prohibition Act by President Jonathan on January 7, 2014 has provoked negative reactions from member countries of EU, Canada and now the United States all of whom have alleged that the law is a violation of the fundamental human rights of Nigerians with same sex orientation.

Ambassador Entwistle said he was aware that “the issue of same-sex marriage was very controversial all over the world, including within the United States where 17 states out of 50 had endorsed it, but others still reject its legality”. According to him, “the issue that we see and I am speaking as a friend of Nigeria is that as I read the bill, it looks to me that it puts significant restrictions on the freedoms of assembly and expression; in my opinion which applies especially in advanced democracies, once government begins to say something in these areas, freedom no longer applies. It seems to me that this is a very worrisome precedent.”

Anti-gay diplomacy
A lecturer at Covenant University, Professor Kayode Soremekun said: “What is happening demonstrates the low level that the US treats its relation with Nigeria”.

He said every Nigerian should feel insulted that the US is threatening to stop assisting us on areas where we have the resources and human capacity to contend.

Said Professor Soremekun, “even when the West had their misgivings about Russia’s anti-gay law, they have not gone threatening them with sanctions and punitive action. We are not reckoned with in the international arena where we are getting assistance for HIV/AIDS, Malaria treatment drugs, polio virus crusade among other mundane issues”.

He continued: ”Nigeria is still a conservative society and the anti-gay law has united the ruling class and Nigerians outside government at this level of our national development. The US and its EU partners should be discussing serious issues; the leadership showed pro-activeness in trying to save the society from getting exposed to practices that are antithetical to our culture.

“We should be focussing on the items on the Bi-National Commission between both countries, but these threats show that we are nonentity in global arena. When the US is discussing with Iran on nuclear issues, they are threatening us on mundane issues”.

According to Soremekun, “we should be able to make the US and its EU allies realise that they cannot go to China to dictate their laws. China is still a communist country and they are falling over them selves to go to China and do business. We should make them realise what General Abacha did when he opened the door to China and Asian countries in the 1990s.”


Homosexualism, lesbianism animalistic.
However, former Ambassador Suleiman, yesterday, described homosexuality and lesbianism as animalistic acts, degrading to humanity. Suleiman served as Nigerian envoy in several countries, including Pakistan, Brazil, Angola, United States of America, Ivory Coast, Poland, Australia and Sudan, among others.

Reacting to US threat of sanctions against Nigeria over the anti-gay law, Suleiman stressed the need for Nigerian leaders not to be dependent on foreign assistance for governance.

He said: “Homosexuality and lesbianism are offences against God; if any body wants to do it, he should do so secretly. It is not only animalistic but diminishes mankind.”

“If it is the money the US gives to us, let them keep the money. Nigeria is rich enough to take care of her people unlike other countries.”

    1. Stupid Talk, 1,500 Animals are known to practice Homosexuality.
      The most well-known homosexual animal is the dwarf chimpanzee, one of humanity's closes relatives. The entire species is bisexual. Sex plays an conspicuous role in all their activities and takes the focus away from violence, which is the most typical method of solving conflicts among primates and many other animals.

  5. I will suggest that, if the West wants us to amend that law, our National Assembly should not hesitate by making the culprits punishable by hanging, if their meaning of freedom is any goes, why won't they allow us go with our choice of decency. I think this guys are only giving our leaders cheap popularity, I never knew I could hear anything good from Senate President, but his stance on this issue made him my Senator of the year. If their freedom extends to marrying animals, must we abandon our pretty women and join them.

  10. Wonders shall never end. Is it by force that we should allow our children go astray? We dont want same sex marriage for goodnes sake. Even animals are better off these people. Its so disgusting just reading about it talkless of seeing or hearing people are clamouring for it to be legalised. The parents of these people have a whole lot to do else they will answer to God on judgement day. They should retrace their steps and see where they went wrong. God gave them to you to bring them up in his way and not this abominable manner.

  11. As much as i abhor this Homo of a thing, we have to be very careful here. Any fool who bears grudges with his neighbor can now go to the Police station and report him/her as Gay and finish the person's life. Let us not get too carried away with emotions. Banning Gay marriage is good, but prison time is a bit suspicious if it is not as a result of assault or molestation. The rule of Law must not be abused.

  14. As far as I'm concern, this is a closed case. US sanction or not. We can never go back on Anti Gay law in Nigeria. President Jonathan has the confidence and support of all Nigerians. No one not even the US can intimidate us on this, with or without their aid, Nigeria will survive. Aluta Continua!

  17. They ride in one of the most beautiful and most expensive cars,sleep in one of the most beatiful houses,fuck one of the most suitable,cleaness and beautiful pussy in these country but yet they are beggers to some so called world leaders,that is some of our leaders for u. If some of our past leaders to this present one uses our resources well, NIGERIA today will surely be among the richest and most respected nation in the world but due to their grid,irrensponsibility foolishness,lack of vission and forsight has belittled our dear country so low that every dick and harry with their devilish and satanic minds like the “american govt“ challanges our decissions at anytime they feel like not minding that we are nation and with people on own. I really hail nigerians for their support to the goverment and standing firmly on it‘s decission on these same sex marriage issue,i also pray that may GOD give mr president and the law makers the courage and wisdom to stand by their decissions on these issue no matter the challanges and intimidations. GOD bless Nigeria!

  18. Even animals are wise enough not to indulge in homosexuality.
    I am actually wondering why Nigeria needs external support to fight HIV and Malaria. Are we supposed to get these drugs free from them?
    I hope these nations will not call for human rights for Armed robbers or treasury looters tomorrow?

  19. i dont see any reason why another nation should detect to another nation to do thing against their cultural, moral and religious belief. DOES IT MEAN THAT WHAT EVER AMERICA DECLARES LEGAL IN ITS COUNTRY CONSTITUTE HUMAN RIGHT VIOLATION IN ANOTHER COUNTRY THAT DOES NOT SHARE THERE IDEOLOGY. DONT BE SUPRISE VERY SOON AMERICA WILL LEGALIZE BESTIALITY( SEX WITH ANIMALS) AND EXPECT OTHER COUNTRIES TO FOLLOW SUIT, BECAUSE OF THE STUPID NOTION THAT EVERY BODY IS FREE TO CHOSE HIS SEXUAL PREFERENCE WHY ARE THEY NOT THREATENING RUSSIA OR IS IT BECAUSE THEY CLASSIFY US AS 3RD WORLD COUNTRY; TO HELL WITH THEIR AID. I WAS SURPRISE WHEN ONE CRAZY HUMAN RIGHT(OR WILL I SAY HUMAN WRONG)ACTIVIST REFEREED THE PASSAGE OF THE LAW AS A MOVE TOWARDS THE STONE AGE. AS FAR AS I AM CONCERN THEIR IS NO RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUMAN RIGHT AND GAYISIM IF NOT WHY ARE BASTIALS ARRESTED IN AMERICA ARE THEY NOT FREE TO EXPRESS THEIR SEXUAL PREFERENCE. NIGERIA MUST CONTINUE TO SAY NO TO SAME SEX MARRIAGE FOR IT RISKS OUR NATION GOING INTO EXTINCTION BECAUSE OF LACK OF PROCREATION AND ALSO CAUSING CONFUSION IN OUR SOCIETY.

  21. This is definately a satanic agenda! Is it not funny that they have a law that criminalise polygamy but want same sex marriage law removed! Is not funny that america value right but do not mind people with HIV losing their very right to live! Is not funny america want to impose on Nigeria what 33 out of 50 states in US are saying NO to? Is not funny that US is not harassing China, Russian, Saudi about gay but are falling over each to business with this countries? What a shame! Nigerians should wake and build this country! So that these satan possessed people will not be insulting us in this country!
