June 5, 2017 – Worry As Nigerian Youths Embrace Same Sex Marriage; FG Decries Increase In Homosexuality
The FG today says social values have been eroded, adding that Nigerian youths have embraced same sex marriage.
The government said some youths had even staged a protest before the National Assembly for the repeal of the Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act which prescribes a 14-year jail term for anyone who enters into a gay marriage.
The DG of the National Orientation Agency, Dr. Garba Abari, said this during a programme titled, ‘Anti-Corruption: The Role of Media as Change Agents’ in Abuja on Saturday.
The programme was organised by the Muslim Media Practitioners of Nigeria. The NOA boss also urged youths to stop wearing dreadlocks and saggy trousers.
He said, “The wearing of tattoos, dreadlocks, sagging trousers and the painting of hair have become a vogue among our young men and women.
Our youths are now publicly clamouring for the legalisation of gay marriage and are about to boldly take the campaign to the hallowed chambers of the National Assembly to press for it as a fundamental human right.”
