Nigeria’s President Jonathan Signs Same Sex Prohibition Bill Into Law

Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan finally signed the bill which puts gays in Nigeria at a risk of 14-year
jail term if they get married.
This bill also bans the
operation or participation in gay clubs, societies and organizations directly
or indirectly, as any one caught, will earn a 10-year imprisonment sentence.
Those who administer witness, abet or aid the solemnization of a same sex
marriage are also going to get a 10-year jail term.
 
Goodluck Jonathan’s spokesman Reuben Abati told AFP, without specifying a date but adding
that it happened earlier this month.

Abati said Jonathan signed off on the Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Bill 2013 because it was consistent with
the attitudes of most people towards homosexuality in the west African nation.

“More than 90 percent of
Nigerians are opposed to same sex marriage. So, the law is in line with our
cultural and religious beliefs as a people,” he added.

“And I think that this
law is made for a people and what (the) government has done is consistent with
the preference of its environment.”

The anti-gay law follows similar legislation in Uganda that was
condemned by US President Barack Obama
as “odious” and compared to apartheid by South African
peace icon Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
