Former Education Minister cum Presidential candidate, Oby Ezekwesili, has said that although she does not support homosexuality, she would give everyone including gays and lesbians, equal oportunity if she is elected as President in 2019.

Ezekwesili said this on her twitter handle while making clarifications to an answer she gave to Nigerian gayrights activist, Bisi Alimi at Chatham House in London recently. See videos from her interaction with Bisi and her tweets explaining her position below

Give Gays and Lesbians equal opportunity to do exactly what in Nigeria?

As Brothel for Normal people dey, you will also allow the legal registration and running of gay and lesbian brothels

As church, mosque, village, or court marriage dey for Normal people , you will also ensure an equal marriage opportunity for gays and lesbians

Under your Government, Gay and lesbians will have their own 'Catchment area" during university admission

Obiageli...those people clapping for you in Chatham house will not be the ones to vote for you...We Nigerians in Nigeria are waiting for you at the Ballot undecided

Equal opportunity my foot undecided...

Walahi Walahi....I would rather cast my vote for a thousand Buharis than cast my vote for this sell-out speaking from both sides of the mouth sad

*In Anambra Man's tongue

Obiageli....Maka Chukwu angry....You have rost this erection undecided

shocked



Ezekwesili lost all my respect with that contradictory statement.
How will her bias allow her give gays equal opportunities?

You want to be a President yet you don't support gays.
You call yourself a Christian but you are homophobic.
Anyone who doesn't support gays is not fit to be called a Christian.

Christianity means being Christlike.
Christ was not judgemental, he loved unconditionally because God is love.
I love gays
I love lesbians
I have an overwhelming admiration and an unshakeable support for the LGBT community and my biggest dream is waking up to a world where people won't be judged based on their sexual orientation.

We should love them too because our offsprings could be gay.
And when our kids turn out gay, we'd expect others to love them too.

The sad truth is,
Everyone of us has a gay in our lineage, only that most of them are closeted.

As a Christian you're not suppose to lie, cheat, steal but you still do.

What makes one "sin" greater than the other?

The most overtly homophobic Nigerians are usually those who have either NEVER traveled out of the country, or who have decided to block their minds to global realities. I believe in the union of men and women, and as a Christian, I do not support homosexuality. However, I will defend with every drop of my blood, people's right to a sexual orientation. Even our constitution guarantees that right. People should just chill. With all our over sabi spirituality, there is crime everywhere, including ritual killing. Hypocrites everywhere.

Lesson learned. When a lot of people are engaging in abnormal behavior, we should accept it as global reality.
Thank you.

What makes one "sin" greater than the other?

I'm no pastor but even Jesus said if you sin against the holy Spirit you will not be forgiven. And there are several other instances in the Bible that suggest that all sins aren't equal.

This gives credence to the fact that all "sins" are not equal. Just to correct that notion, not entirely related to the topic.
