British Prime Minister urges Nigeria to legalise gay marriage

Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday urged all members of the Commonwealth of Nations that had made what she called outdated legislations against same-sex marriage to have a rethink.

May said this in London while addressing leaders at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).

Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan had in 2014 signed a bill outlawing gay relationships and same-sex marriage, putting the legislation to use months after it was passed by the National Assembly.

Under the law, anyone convicted for getting involved in gay relationship or entering into a same-sex marriage contract or civil union faces up to 14 years in jail.

But the British Prime Minister maintained that no one should enact any law persecuting or discriminating against another person on account of who the person chooses to love.

May said that the United Kingdom would support any nation ready revoke its anti-same sex law.

She argued that the world had moved from 50 years ago when people were dictated to, saying young persons today design their lifestyles as they like.

She recalled that the last Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting resolved to establish an organisation that would promote the interests of gays, lesbians, and transgenders.
