“Anti-Gay Law ‘ll Promote HIV Infection In Nigeria” – UN Chief Navi Pillay

Navi Pillay in nigeria

March 14, 2014 – “Anti-Gay Law Will Increase HIV Aids Infection In Nigeria” – UN Chief Navi Pillay

The UN rights chief, Navi Pillay, Thursday said Nigeria’s recent ban on same-sex marriage violated human rights and the nation’s constitution.

“I’m concerned with the implication of the recently-passed Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act,” Pillay said during a meeting with Nigeria’s justice minister as part of her three-day official visit to Africa’s most populous nation.

“In addition to the violation of fundamental human rights enshrined in the ICCPR (International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights), it is a violation also of the African Charter and the Nigerian constitution itself,” she said.

Nigeria has been under fire internationally for banning gay marriage and alleged abuses while tackling Islamist insurgents in the north of the country.

President Goodluck Jonathan had in January approved a bill banning gay marriage and same-sex partnerships that sparked international condemnation.

Under the terms of the law — criticised by the EU, US and Amnesty International among others — anyone who enters into a same-sex marriage or civil union can be sentenced to 14 years in prison.

“It (the law) may have negative consequences for public health in Nigeria,” the UN chief said.

“It may deter LGBT persons from taking up HIV education, prevention treatment and care services and also hinder the ability of government as well as civil society and religious groups from implementing such services.

She called on authorities to observe a “moratorium on prosecution”.

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.

Pillay, who ends her visit to Nigeria on Friday, also expressed her concern about “the impunity enjoyed by perpetrators of human rights violations” in the country and urged authorities “to investigate and prosecute allegations of human rights violation”.

She alleged that crimes committed by Boko Haram Islamists and security forces battling insurgents have “horrendous impact” on civilians.

Rights bodies and other groups have often accused security forces of human rights violations in their campaign to battle the insurgency which has claimed thousands of lives since 2009.

She said she would encourage Nigeria to take concrete steps to abolishing the death penalty by reducing the number of crimes punishable by it.

In response, Justice Minister Mohammed Bello Adoke said “the focus of the (anti-gay) Act is therefore discouragement of same-sex marriage which is a reflection of the overwhelming beliefs and cultural values of the Nigerian people”.

He claimed that a 2013 opinion poll showed that 92 percent of Nigerians rejected same-sex marriage.

He added that the constitution did not approve extra-judicial killing and “has zero tolerance for any form of cruelty or inhuman treatment”.

“While there have reports of extra-judicial killings, let me assure you that security officers that have been found culpable, irrespective of their position, are made to face the full weight of the law,” he said.

Her visit is the first by UN human rights chief to Nigeria.

    You are very right “red” that’s not my dad’s business or any of my relation.The human heart is a very strong chamber that can hide things.You have judged and found yourself guilty with this your own words:The real red,which means you knew what you had in your evil plan,why not say something reasonable like a normal human and see if i will call you out.(2) Your are the definition of a pure blood bastard with no identity knowing for who to attach yourself to and fell wanted.You need to go back and ask your mom the last thing she remembered before she delivered you that is if you are not an orphan because no body with a family love will be so dry like you.As for the curse i RED placed on you red*,Heaven and earth shall pass out but this curse will never ever pass without taking place in your life “UNLESS YOUR COMMENT WHICH YOU POSTED HERE IS WHO YOU ARE AND THE DEAD TRUTH OF WHAT YOU WANT AND REPRESENT,IF YOU WROTE IT TO PAINT ME BLACK OR SIT BACK AND WATCH PEOPLE CURSE ME WHILE YOU HIDE AND SMILE:SORRY DEAR red* YOU PICKED THE WRONG BITCH .YOU ARE DOOMED FOR LIFE,YOU ARE FREE TO FIGHT .NOBODY WILL SAVE YOU IF YOU REALLY WANTED TO START SOMETHING. OH,YOUR CURSE WILL START WITH DRY WEATHER THUNDER.

    I didn’t want to comment, but I just had to. There cant be only one red, even if you closely look, the red that says his gay has an asterisk to his name…. To curse someone over such a thing is not childish but very very immature. he never said he was you. it annoys me to see such. Cause you insult God by your words!
    red* being gay is not a good thing, deep down you know it. it isn’t late to change.
    As for the other reds una no be celebrity so stop dey form Angelina jolie., because you always post here doesnt give you the right to feel like a shareholder.
    FYI I open naijagist every interval of an hour but you dont see me posting and feeling like a king even when I am.
    I hope I was able to educate you all on some common things of life. thank you

      Stoney i guess you are king of the mountain,If only the cave men are still around red will gladly pay them to educate you about self respect.since you are far away living in your rocky kingdom where naijagist.com is kind enough to extend their services to you i don’t expect you to know much when you are all alone in your stoney world.You claimed to visit here often,maybe you read without understanding or you glance through the pictures,if not you could have seen where i tried to be reasonable with this low life to avoid things like this.If i have not response back this way you and the likes of you will be posting all types of English and curse on me.For your information that name RED is the name i go with,is my plate number,my working ID and yeah on my award if you stoney really know what that means since everything about you should be carved on a stone.

      Is very clear that inferiority complex is playing a major role in your life or maybe you know your standard as below what it should be.Am the Angelina Jolie of my life,am proud to be me,there can never be another me with everything i represent in other just like you,I don’t have to live or stoop low to please you or fit into what you expect yourself to be.Am a celebrity and i celebrate my life and achievement and will keep doing so even if it kills yoU.Confused souls like you are the reason why we have problem in this world.Why did you write and tell me you feel intimidated with my presents here and i will peaceful make way for you stoney .if i have kept quiet like i did on this issue you stoney in particular will be looking for a way to stone me with your stupid comment.This show is becoming silly,I will be a nobody if everybody loves me,Your hate and the gaylord trying to be me shows me that am doing something great and unique so deal with it stoney .RED have no apologises for being herself,for anything or anybody and for that deal with it or zip it.

    The statement altered by UN Chief Nav Pillay about the ban of gay activities in Nigeria is a complete lie and pro-gay statement. This terrible lie or wrong information is not supported by any medical research. Starting from the creation of man in the Garden of Eden, sexual intercourse has always been between a man and a woman. If this demonic statement by this UN chief has any element of truth in it, how come God Almighty created Adam and evil and not Adam and Adam or Eve and Even in the Garden of Eden. It is a pity that LOWER Animals like all mammals, birds, sea animals and domestic animals like dogs, rabbits have better sense of reasoning than some human beings like Dr. Nav Pillay of the UN. it’s means that these animals know better that sexual intercourse is between two opposite sex (male and female), and this is indisputable fact because I’ve never seen two male or two female dogs mating; I’ve never seen two female rabbits or two male rabbits mating. Sexual intercourse between two opposite sex (male and female) has always been the only normal and widely accepted form of sex relationship for thousands of years far before these kind of doctors invented HIV/AIDS in early 1990s. God Almighty destroyed a whole city because of this gay activities as recorded in the Holy Bible. It is a pity that one gay looking UN Chief who does not look either male nor female will tell us that anti-gay law in Nigeria will increase HIV/Aids Infections. This is nothing but a lie from the pit of evil. we (human race) will not be here if our forefathers and mothers choice to be gay because reproduction will not occur. God commanded us human beings to multiply and be fruitful by the union of a man and a woman and not the other way round. Some powerful countries of this evil world condemned Nigeria for enacting anti-gay law but God Almighty endorses that law because He-God is the author of marriage between one man and a woman. We should not be surprise because very soon some doctors/researchers from evil organizations will tell us that banning sex between a man and dogs will increase HIV/AIDS in their countries. In some advance nations of the world mostly in Europe, Canada and the U.S, it is an accepted practice for human being to openly have sexual intercourse with animals like dogs. But this UN chief feels this practice will help her country and other to stop or decrease the spread of HIV/AIDS infection. This is “Baba Nla Nonsense” has great Fela Anikulapo sings. Please bad teacher don’t teach us nonsense in Nigeria and Africa because we know better. Here I rest my case.
