Aisha Yesufu: I Witnessed Same-Sex Marriage In Nigeria In The 80s by CastedAyo: 5:22pm On Jan 11
Co-founder of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement Aisha Yesufu has said she witnessed same-sex marriages in Nigeria in the 1980s, Igbere TV reports.

Mrs Yesufu said on Monday that homosexuality was not a new discovery in Nigeria, adding that the choice of sexuality is personal.

“You do not need anyone liking your choice of sexuality. All you need is being given the right to practise your sexuality.

“Homosexuality was freely practiced in Nigeria for hundreds of years and I witnessed same sex marriages in the 80s. So calm down, it is not a new discovery,” she tweeted.

When questioned by a Twitter user Imorta Rakeem about the veracity of her claims, Yesufu replied that the LGBTQ community in Nigeria is unaware that homosexuality existed in Nigeria before the coming of the colonialists.

“The most irritating part is that many amongst the LGBTQ community in Nigeria also do not know that before the coming of the colonialists it was entrenched here even while it was illegal over there,” she said.

Homosexuality and same-sex relationships attract a penalty of up to 14 years in Nigeria.

The truth is all these activists are just after self popularity and the hustle for fat media paycheck, public validation on every of their opinion. If Aisha can't answer the following questions then she should cover her face with shame and either walk back to her village shell in Edo or the streets of Kano where she grew up !!
Name of the homo couples
Venue of the wedding ceremony
Name of officiating priests
Name of the bride and groom parents
Then pictures from the homo wedding!!

This one has derailed from her course. So she's directly canvassing for same-sex marriage. The earlier she wake up from her deep sleep, the better for her.

Western countries that most folks are using as examples didn't built their advancement values on those immoral, ungodly and uncultured values.

We often deceive ourselves that openness of opinion is the major cause of western advancement, capital lie!

We say no to immorality in Nigeria. We are people of values.

That's a woman that thinks and doesn't allow religion think for her

Allow people make their choice and live with the consequences and benefits of such choice.



Live and let live !

Aisha is another Kemi. But truth be told that If i wait for someone else to validate my existence, it will mean that I'm shortchanging myself.

I love this woman a lot!
Live and let others live.
You're disgusted by LGBT and the couples are okay with it alone is an evidence that you should let everyone live their lives.
I've seen effeminate guys, and tomboy ladies.

Many of them were the nicest people I ever came across and in fact, I'd love to see them everyday.
The reasons behind the hate is something I'm still to find out!

Touch a homophobic somebody and next moment they're like their religion is against it.
Who wrote the holy books? SILENCE

Moses was also probably a homophobic prophet, and he lived his life his way.
Let people of our generation live theirs, their way!

I am not against her opinions. If she is okay with both her sons doing the gay 69 with each other, fine with me. But what I know is that Islam is 100% against homosexuality and she should stop wearing that Hijab that portrays her as a Muslim woman. She is not a Muslim

Yeah for the record, I am a Christian. If you are going to support homosexuality, stop being a Christian. Homosexuality has no home in Christianity. Supporting homosexuality as a Christian makes you an agent of the devil in disguise. Yes and you will not be part of the Kingdom of God so stop trying to please the liberal and denounce biblical rules.

10 LGA in all which can be expanded to cater for the population.

OFF TOPIC!

Again, this is the second time I am reporting this post. My first post was deleted but this user wasn't punished!

You now see why some well-meaning Nairalanders are upset? The kind of injustice going on here, ah!

On another note, I suspect some moderators are running multiple accounts. Since they can't post nonsense via their main accounts for fear of backlash, resort to using secondary accounts? Very possible! Otherwise, why are the users I reported earlier still "walking freely"? Why are my reports deleted? I can't even tag moderators again because they'll delete this post and nothing will still happen to the offenders, because they are not Northerners!

Why is Nairaland anti-North? Why are some of the mods biased? Yet we blame our leaders, ironical, right? It's well!

Nigeria must better!
