Nigeria sticks to traditional values over same-sex marriage, says Senate President

Eugene Ohu | 28 January 2013
Nigeria is set to criminalize same-sex unions, and defaulters when convicted will spend 14 years in jail. This is contained in a bill which has passed all required readings in the senate and should soon be signed into law by Nigeria’s president Goodluck Jonathan. Many nations of the West such as the United States are worried by this and since the announcement of this bill early 2012, have been mounting pressures, overt and subtle on the Nigerian government and legislators, to kill the bill.
