Lately we have noticed that some members support same sex comparing them to armed robbers and that we should leave them alone. A popular Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike who is also a member of Imo State Youths page recently took a stand against legalising gay marriage in the country at Vchannel Celebrity Night Out at Troy Lounge in Lagos.
Emeka, while fielding questions from April and Bridget, presenters from the cable station on state of the nation, said Nigeria should not follow the footsteps of United Kingdom (UK) that legalised same-sex marriage.
“Knowing our penchant for ‘copying’ others, I want to plead with Nigerians not to encourage same sex marriage. I don’t hate gay but I don’t support gay marriage either. God does not want it, our culture forbids it. We should not encourage what is not right. This is about defending whatever is left of our culture.
Nigeria should not go the way of UK, we are people of culture. I want our legislators to stick to their guns and not legalise what will be eroding our culture and make us Godless people.” He still supports the legislators to jail them as prescribed by the law which is 14years once the president appends his signature.
