Muslim body speaks on call for Nigeria to allow same-sex marriage

The Administrative Secretary of National Mosque, Umoru Ja’afaru has said the Abuja Muslim Umma (body) would not pre-empt President Muhammadu Buhari’s response to the British Prime Minister, Theresa May’s call on Nigeria and other Commonwealth nations to allow same-sex marriage.

DAILY POST recalls that Mrs May told Commonwealth Heads of Government that there should be no laws criminalising same-sex relationships across the Commonwealth. 

However, Ja’afaru while speaking with journalists in Abuja yesterday, expressed confidence that the President, being a devout Muslim, would not cause to be set in motion actions for the repeal of the law banning same-sex marriage in Nigeria.

He said: “We should not put the cart before the horse. The Abuja Muslim Umma is already aware of the appeal made by the British Prime Minister but we would not react to her statement until we observe the tone and colour of President Buhari’s response.

“Be that as it may, we are confident that the President Buhari we know as a devout Muslim would never accede to such a demand.

“However, if he speaks or acts otherwise, then we would fully express our reaction through appropriate channels.”
