Anti-Same Sex Marriage Bill Scales Second Reading In House Of Reps by Nobody: 10:19pm On Nov 13, 2012
A bill for an Act to prohibit marriage or civil union entered into between persons of same sex and solemnisation of same on Tuesday passed through the second reading in the House of Representatives.

The bill, which passed without a dissenting voice, had previously been passed by the senate.


Speaking on the bill, lawmakers said the notion of same sex marriage is an alien culture that must be preventing from taking root in Nigeria.

Leading the debate on the bill, Mulikat Akande-Adeola (PDP-Oyo), said the proposed legislation would ensure that the institution of marriage is respected.

Ms Akande-Adeola, who is the Leader of the House, said that the bill would also protect and preserve the Nigerian culture.

She said: “This same sex marriage is alien to our culture and not ordained by God; same sex or gender marriage is completely alien to our society and culture.

“This practice has no place in our culture, religion, Nigeria or anywhere in Africa, it is immorality and debasement of our culture, we condemn it in totality.”

Adams Jagaba (PDP-Kaduna) aligned himself with the submission of the Majority Leader and said no religion supports gay marriage.
“We are a cultured people; we cannot carry everything from other culture,” he declared.

Abike Dabiri-Erewa (ACN-Lagos), who also supported the bill, said the solemnisation of same sex marriage had no place in Nigerian culture.
Nnenna Ukeje (PDP-Abia) condemned gay marriage.

According to her, marriage is a union that should be blessed by God.

She said that marriage between same sex “diminishes the symbol of what we are and procreation.”

Minority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila (ACN-Lagos), who also spoke against marriage between the same sex, described the act as immoral.

“In this marriage, the third party is affected, these people go ahead and adopt children, thereby affecting the child, and in the process the child becomes dysfunctional.

“We are not seeking to promote a dysfunctional society,” he said.

Aminu Suleiman (PDP-Kano) praised the Senate for taking the initiative in rejecting gay marriage in Nigeria.

There was no dissenting voice and the bill passed through second reading after being put to vote by the Speaker of the House, Aminu Tambuwal.
Mr Tambuwal subsequently referred it to the Committee of the Whole House for consideration.

The Senate had in November 2011 passed a bill banning same sex marriages in the country.

Here we go again. grin

My view: It all depends on what the objective of this bill is. If it is simply to ban same-sex marriage, all well and good; however if it is to discourage the PRACTICE of homosexuality, it has failed from the beginning. Moral issues cannot be resolved by simply passing a law-softer measures are required if the MINDSET behind homosexuality is to be tackled. It's not just about passing a law, because ultimately people will do whatever the hell they wanna do.

End of story.

You know, I'm also tempted to believe that the intention behind this bill may be just to assuage the Nigerian public by passing a bill that could be considered "acceptable" to the majority of Nigerians, while several other, more crucial bills, such as the PIB you mentioned, remain unattended to.

I still maintain my stance: passing this bill will not, by itself, stop the practice of homosexuality. Rather it will create a flourishing underground market.

How does same sex marriage affect the price of Garri in the Market?! Or the corruption in Nigeria?! Or the insecurity in NIGERIA?!

Are faggo`ts the problem with this country?! Because if they are, please add a kill clause to it..

This bill is a waste of time.. I am not a f`aggot, so why should I be bothered about F`aggots?!

Allow them to f`uck whosoever they want to f`uck..

These Lawmakers should first pass a bill slashing their salaries and renumerations by atleast 65% first.. 500,000 Nigerian Fagg`ots in an orgey together at the same time will not affect the economy or value of the Naira..

This bill is a waste of time.. Homosexuality will never be smiled upon by Africans wether its inthe Law or not.. And sending a Homo to Jail is like sending a Suicide Bomber to Paradise with 72 Virgins..

This is one of the responsible moves I will credit this 7th Assembly with.. Lesbianism or gay is alien to us and should not be made a law.. There are enough abominations in our land, we should not add to our woes.

Homosexuality has nothing to do with tribe, color, religion or culture.. Its just a sexual preference of a rather large suppressed group..

Should we also ban 'heamaphrodites as well?!

Nigerians should learn to focus on whats more important to them.. The west that is practicing these acts are still way more advanced and light years ahead of us..

The truth is that we have no culture or moral, what we have is hypocrisy. If Farouk Lawan is still walking around Nigeria free, and then you want to put 2 men who have slept with each other in jail for 14 years, then we are all fools.

The sin of homosexuality is the same as the sin of fornication, adultery , so why are they not creating sanctions for that, they are simply trying to make themselves look moral and cultural by adopting something that only affects a minority.


also homosexuality is not imported and it would never be, it is as old as man, right from the bible days, we need to kill the fire burning us and stop chasing rat. This is however a conspiracy to witchhunt some gay senators and also to cut foreign aid to the country thereby rendering the whole GEJ administration useless.
