US President, Barrack Obama

By  Ahamefula Ogbu   

The Federal Government Wednesday, reacted to the position US President Barack Obama on same-sex marriage, saying the country reserved the right to make laws as a sovereign nation that governs it.

Reacting to the move by Obama to intensify campaign for gay rights at a time the senate is trying to make homosexuality a criminal act, Minister of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku, said there were norms and practices peculiar to each country and society which should be respected and not overlooked on the altar of human rights so as not to assault the sensibilities of the people.

“But at any rate, between Europe, America and Africa there is a huge culture gap. Some of the things that are considered fundamental rights abroad also can be very offensive to African culture and tradition and to the way we live our lives here. I said this (prohibition of same-sex marriage) has not become a law, but sometimes we get worried by comments that are made.

“The truth of the matter is our democracy will be guarded by Nigeria's interest and values. And if eventually the law becomes law, we will live with it but it is not yet law. And we will take comments by our foreign partners and friends as legitimate but I also know that it is within the legitimate rights of Nigeria as an independent nation and our legislature to legislate and discuss any matter in the world that comes before them that is also in tune with the welfare of the people of Nigeria,” he said. Maku insisted that taking a position on yet-to-be-passed law was premature.
“The reported comments by the US Government about the proposed law by the Senate about same-sex marriage in Nigeria have not fully come to government for a position. But let me say this, we live in a democracy, we live in a free country, we live in an independent country and in every democracy as you know, there are institutions, there are laws and also there are cultures, there are beliefs and values in every nation.

“Relating to the law that is being proposed by the Senate, as you know Senate has passed a version of a law relating to same sex marriages, that law has not yet gone through House of Representatives not to talk of becoming a law that will be forwarded to the president for assent,” he said.

Explaining further, he said Nigeria as a nation has institutions that regulates what happens within the legal confines of living within the law would always guide the standard whether foreign countries like it or not and cannot determine how the country lives its life.

“I believe our institutions are clear, we live in a democracy. Foreign countries that may not be happy with certain aspects of laws passed in Nigeria are free to express their views concerning whatever law that is passed through the Nigerian legislature but at the same time all those countries know how democracies work,” he said.

  • Tell Obama to go to hell with the gay rights. We should not allow the western world particularly the US to impose on us satanic cultures. The gay culture is an abomination to an african.Let the western regale on their satanic culture fuelled by some special interest groups.

  • Tell them Minister, the senate is doing the right thing. I am a Nigerian living in USA and I respect the different cultures and value systems that make up America. Though seeing two women or men kissing is offensive and disgusting to me but I put up with it because I am in their land. Therefore our cultural values should be respected. We are a sovereign nation and we have the right to make our own laws without interference from other nations.

  • Prediction - No bill banning homosexuality will become law anytime soon. The Nigerian legislature is in no position to challenge the EU and the US. They should focus on important developmental issues like basic healthcare, electricity, education and clean drinking water. The debate on gay issues is a futile and dishonest endeavor, one that they will loose.

  • I cant imagine Obama trying to fight for what God had judged centuries ago. This is crazy. I am sure he has lost all his sense of "Africaness". He should rather focus on his struggling government and exert his energy in returning to the state house next year. I am sorry for him, this will sink him Nigeria is God's own country, we cannot afford to become like South Africa or other nations that have been overtaken by this evil.

  • Minister please spare Nigerians all the details whether it has become law or not, we owe Obama and Europe no explanation. Surely as the LORD GOD liveth it is already approved by GOD. We must not be destroyed like SODOM and GOMORAH. It Biblically wrong and culturally not accepted. It should not be an issue to be discussed with the view to convincing any body. Let Obama and co go to hell.

  • The born-slaves are not going to tell Obama to shut his trap on issues affecting Nigeria territory and concentrate on the steady projection of the states of America forward. They won't tell him to respect the values of other people rather than forcing his allien ideas on other people in their domains but, if it is Jonathan that talks even, about respecting Nigerians abroad by government of their domiciles, they will be shouting their heads off telling him to face events in and not outside Nigeria.

  • Nigeria and Nigerian, please remember Sodom and Gomorrah. Homosexaul and lesbianism is an abomination before God. Its a great wickedness. No matter the number of persons or countries that permit it God does not and can not change His standard. Beside we are Africans, we have values they don't have.

  • Why even waste a lot of time and energy listening to US and their senseless leaders. They don't know that even God and Nature are against the Gay Marriage and Homosexual practices. No wonder Nature has been fighting them back even when they think that no other people or country can stop them on their stupid laws! Please Obama leave Nigeria alone.

  • Lets not waste time and energy on this issue. If the western countries claims that they are protecting the fundamental human right by asking nigeria to respect the right of her citizens, are they not infringing on the fundamental human right of nigeria as a nation by detecting for nigeria which law to pass and which one not to pass. Are their threat for withdrawal of aid to nigeria not against fundamental human right? Its a high time they should come terms that nigeria is an independent nation and can stand on her own if not for the selfish individuals who loot our monies to their banks. If they want to colonize us again, let them come out open.

  • Persons committing Homosexuality would get the same punishment from God as persons committing any other sin, be it stealing, killing, lying, so i do not see why the homosexuals should be singled out. If it in the countries law, no problem, but as much energy should be put towards people committing other sins.. like the stealing and lying that our political elite are so good at doing. the bible says he that has not sinned should cast the first stone. Minister, what stealing have you and your cronies done? I will be happier seeing a politician spending 14 years in jail then a homosexual!

  • Interesting debate, I enjoyed reading all your reactions. May God bless and protect Nigeria. Lily, there are sins and there are greater sins and homosexuality is by far the greatest of them all. Nigeria has survived all those you mentioned, but it can never survive homosexuality. It is offensive, inhuman, insane, barbaric, immoral and the worst form of evil, one that Satan himself will run away from. If we as Nigerians can collectively stand up against it, I assure you that one day we shall collectively stand up against these greedy thieves called politicians. And the day is yet near.

No one is too big for God bring down. i am happy Nigeria is no more tag terrorist Nation. Let Nigeria be what God want them to be.When they come US they will respect your rule, please let us learn to respect others and put pride behind us.

  • The best campaign for these interest is for US and Europe to vote a homosexual as their presidents or prime ministers. I will like to say the Hon. Minister sound sheepish in his tone. Dear Hon. you are known for your somersault deference, I hope you are not afraid of US and Co.? We NIGERIANS are opposed to this act of beastly behavior. America, go find a solution to your economic problems and leave Africa alone.

  • For God so hate America lately, he gave them Obama as a president. The American citizens want their country back. Obviously, George W. Bush a Republican helped Africa more than any other American President in modern times. He gave hope to the hopeless. Obama has destroyed all the good things that George W. Bush did for Africa. During his time as president George W. Bush through two consecutive African-American Secretaries of States put Africa on a journey to be self-supporting. You Americans may not like him at home. George W. Bush was pro-Africa and the Europeans were not happy about that. They hated him for that. He did not preach immorality to Africans. He helped them to fight AIDS and against things that can cause its spread. If I remember correctly, he initiated the AGOA agreement. He did not attach conditions to whatever he gave to Africans. Republicans and most Americans are against immoral sexual conducts that are detrimental to any nation. Where George W. Bush made Gadaffi to see path of progress, Obama destroyed a prosperous African country, Libya. The African blood contributed to make Obama was a waste and any votes given to him in 2012 will also be a waste.

  • So they make a case for gay rights, when will it stop, what about other sexual minorities (as they say) Pedophiles rights or rapist or bestiality; after all, a Pedophile sexual orientation involves violating minors, a rapist has a sexual orientation for forced intercourse and bestiality have affinity for intercourse with animals. As a proud black Nigerian I stand against it.
    Why don't they coerce Saudi Arabia or Israel or China or Pakistan or Russia about gay rights. Nonsense!

  • I wonder why these satanic countries will push Nigeria to hell, abomination is an offense, we should stand clear from these countries for their evils. Let these evil countries keep their adis, and GOD will do the best for Nigeria, but I appeal to the leaders to fear God to change their way about corruption, when we blame the west for their satanic evil, then Nigeria should love their neighbor to stop the selfish way of doing things, for God sake create jobs, going by what our brother Obasanjo said about the employment in Nigeria which is giving everybody a concern, God will show the leaders the way to go about this.

  • I applaud the zeal with which the Federal Government is rebuffing the US concerning anti-gay legislation. But one question I want to ask is, since the Government understand that there are norms and practices peculiar to countries, is corruption and bad governance also peculiar to us? If the FG applies the same zeal they are using in defending the anti-gay law towards anti-corruption and good governance, Nigerians will be better off. How does gay practice benefit the average Nigerian? It is the wealthy and their children that can still be found culpable in gay practice. Our leaders, I believe, need psychiatric examination.

If you are supporting same sex marriage right, How did you get your two children, Gay marriage or lesbianism does it promote procreation? No matter how bad or corrupt Nigeria is perceived to be, we still have our morals. Kudos to the legislators, One step at a time.

  • Busy bee, you just lifted out my thoughts. one day, we'll wake up to the news that some people are born to prefer intercourse with animals; some will emerge demanding rights to marry their siblings. who knows, even kleptomaniacs will demand the right to be allowed to steal because they simply cant help themselves. what chaos will ensue since rights must be hallowed! i really worry for this world. law must be useful to its society and this particular one if passed, will be highly relevant in our own cultural and moral society.

  • If Obama so much believes in gayism,he should divorce his wife and get marry to Bill Clinton to enable us hear from him what pleasure is derivable therefrom.Likewise Hillary should marry Obama's wife.If this proposition is not disgusting to them,then i see them having more support for the gays maybe not now but in near future.

  • This issue is being over flogged unnecessarily. We do not want westerners to dictate to us yet we embrace their democracy. Where is our pride as a nation? What are our priorities? How does the law against same sex marriages affects us as human beings? Why is the national assembly shying away from passing bills that has direct correlation with the common man on the street yet it speedily passed the one that do not affect food on my table or yours. Let focus our search light on bills that will tame corruption or eliminate same by making it a capital offence to steal public funds. Let them pass bills that will eradicate the unwarranted killings in the north and make it a capital offence to kill in the name of boko haram. These are just few of what will affect you and I on the street and not harmless 'same sex marriage'
    Come to think of it, aren't our legislators ashamed of the vigor and strength put into passing this bill? They came out and were blistering on the media for a work well done. What happened to the PIB bill, what happened to the Nigerian question? When will they be bold to question the existence of corruption, nepotism, federal character vis a vis quality etc. I am not a proponent of same sex marriage but it's existence does not affects me in any way and it is not priority! Lets get FOCUSED!!!!!

  • If the well established American spy system in Nigeria is following this subject closely (as I suspect) it should be thunderously clear that Nigerians, regardless of our tribal, religious, political and ideological differences are completely agreed on this one subject. Yes, our Senate is not fit for purpose at best of times, on this subject though, they are expressing the direct feelings of all Nigerians. Make no mistake about this. Let the American government handlers in Nigeria pass this on loud and clear.

  • For once Nigerians across all divide (tribe, tongue, class & religion) are united on this issue. Our values and culture does not and cannot accept same sex marriage. For they who have become morally bankrupt or maybe morally paralized, let them go observe even the animals and learn. Gayism and Lesbianism is not natural, no, not even animalistic. It is a direct import from the pit of hell that is being smuggled to our nation through the back door. We must all resist it with every fibre of our being and dispatch it to the land of the so called 'free'. Oh by the way, they can keep their aids. Am not sure any of us really know how it comes and goes in the first place. Long live Nigeria.

  • Our case is like that of a man who goes to another for means to feed his family. Of course the time will come when the other man will dictate to him on how to sleep with his wife. Nigeria should demonstrate her independence by actually acting mature. Our agricultural and allied resources are lying in waste while we cavort about in penury. Lets face facts; in international (as well as national) politics, might is right!

  • Nigeria is a sovereign state and has every legitimacy to make laws that are compatible with our cultural and social identity. This is a brave step, telling the West that we are no longer their puppet while making laws that affect us within our territory.
    The West is reaching its apogee as sexual immorality is accelerating drastically with crass pervasion. Though we are a third world nation, through such stand against sexual pervasion, we will survive the tsumani which will soon strip excessively immoral pervasive nations of their hegemony and strength.
    The lesson should be learnt from the chronology of decline of empires. The Roman empire is typical example of empires that declined due to sexual pervasion.

  • The fact that Homosexuality(an act i greatly dislike)..has been a discussion in Nigeria for some weeks now is not what really bothers me...but the fact that EU and US have come once again to interfere with an issue that is purely Nigerian..WHY on earth should the US or EU be involved in decisions like this in Nigeria. and why is the Nigerian Govt dignifying with a response.....
    How many issues have been passed or still pending in these countries that have not favored Nigeria and yet still we respect the decisions being made by them. The Nigerian Govt. should ensure they do not fall weak on this issue.........
    Our laws in Nigeria are predominantly Morally based and this is simply because we are a religious Nation and this works for us....We do not have to embrace Immorality in order to be seen as Developed or Civilized

  • I am so glad Nigeria is putting her foot down on what she believes, not minding what the so called developed countries are saying. I hope we dont derail. It sounds absurd to hear issues such as this being talked about. Is it one of the signs of the end time?

  • Trust we Nigerians, always forgetting the bigger picture, always dodging what is really important. "US should go to hell", "US should keep their aid"....I know more than 80% of u want to go to the US, buys or wears products from the Whites or have been there and wished to remain. The antiretoviral/HIV drugs and TB drugs provided to the nigerian populace is from the US, needless to say these are disease crippling our people. Why are we just a bunch of hypocrites, all this noise you are making here do you think your opinion counts. Do you know how many of the leaders are either homos or lesbians? Do u think homosexuality arrived nigeria today? Is this our priority? Really...in a fertile, rich, blessed country where people still die of dehydration, diarrhoe, malaria? A country whose health care facilities is only better than war torn countries? A country where only a chosen few get into the position of power, we have graduates with no jobs, veterans with no benefits, is this really our priority. Fellow Nigerians don't be blind folded by controversy. If a man choses to like a man if its not ur body I don't see how its ur bussiness, u have the right to say no. But how we can collectively move this nation out of its current rut however is a matter we should all concern ourselves with. Please let's reprioritize.

  • There are no laws against fornication , adultery or senators marrying under aged girls from Egypt . Is this part of 'Africans' . We are looking at specks at another person's eye and neglecting the logs in ours. The comments from the public on this page ought to be ashamed of themselves and are hypocrites. Shame. Opinion led policies in Nigeria are selective and not evidence-based . Nigeria would continue to lag behind in every aspect of life as is pretty glaring. The issue of homosexuality should he left to our churches and mosques and not to the legislative arm of government who are generally corrupt and incompetent and do not qualify at any level to make judgments

  • The Honorable minister of Information should please be careful with the political statements he makes. The unanimous vote against same-sex marriage made by the distinguished Senators should be towed by the House of Reps and it should be signed into law without compromise. The minister should stop telling the US that it is not yet a law because that is a sign of fake hope. They should stop hoping against hope because no politics in this. Please tell them clearly it is against our culture and traditions and Nigerians will never accept that.

  • Obama has no word of his own. He is only trying to please the American and European countries forgetting that Nigeria is a sovereign state. If i may ask, are we still under the capitalist colonial masters called Britain? I thought colonialism, imperialism, and capitalism have all varnished little did i know they exist in this global village. The West should go to hell with gay right!

  • @ victor banjo...you are a fool that doesn't know fact, have you been to Nigeria? Nigeria is perceived to be corrupt but America and the other Western Nation are more corrupt, they are the epitome of corruption, am a Nigerian but in the US now and i know whats happening here, so shut your dirty mouth, you accuse Nigerians of traveling overseas forgetting that this same western people raped our land and took away our ancestors and all they have worked for, your so-called science started in Africa before your Armed robber ancestors came to rape Africa. Infact right now America or any other western country dont have the moral right to dictate to any African countries on what to do, you guys should be ashamed of all your attrocites ... in their quest for modern slavery they created the United nations through which they feel they can control all countries, they created the IMF to lie and give false statistics and proffer stupid solutions to economies, if thats how you guys are in economics, you wont be in trillions of dollar debt...you are the least person i was expecting to comment on the page...so please shut up.

  • Obama has no right whatsoever to interfere on what becomes or does not become a law,not in any country and particularly not in Nigeria,whatever aid or aids he feels he can render to Nigeria,he should withhold same,SAME SEX will never be passed by this legislature and subsequent legislatures will not even deliberate on it.

  • Victor Banjo - Your statement is true but it is not correct. Why? Read on! First, the same Oyibo that we see as very "sensible" have said "Two wrongs can't make a right". So, If all Africans (as you assert above) are bad does it mean we should pass laws that make bad thing legally good? The wise one once said "Gold is Gold even if it is in the hands of a beggar", suffice to say - "An act of kindness is still an act of kindness even if it is by the enemy". Homosexuality is a sin (just like Fornication/Adultery between heterosexuals) so because most of us have engaged or continue engage in such then it should be accepted as not a sin any more? Hmm! As for me my answer na NO.
