LGBT: THE INFLUENCE OF THE WEST AND THE VALIDITY OF THE LAW IN NIGERIA.

| 9 Comments


My last write up on the issue of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender bothered mainly on morality and religion; espousing in strong terms why it should not be encouraged in Nigeria for whatsoever reasons on the basis of religious and moral beliefs of our people. Today, I will be attempting to look at it from the perspective of the law while also considering the influence of the west and their attempts to coerce us into doing what they want. The western world by extension has increased the scope of subjugation and trampling over us just to bring us in line to their terms by attempting to sabotage us as a nation.

I have watched and listened keenly over the last few weeks as the LGBT's matter has kept on evolving and how the western countries have increasingly become agitated in imposing on us the tradition, which they have so shamefully imbibed finding different excuses to back up their confusion. I read recently that the United Nations suspended relief to Uganda over their anti gay laws and the Canadian government ordering their power company to pull out of the Nigerian power reform over our anti gay laws. As I read this news, I could not but marvel at the desperation of the west. Is this not their usual resort, hand twisting for purposes of finding their way?

Countries like America and other European countries over the years have always withheld aids and funds to countries they attempt to control once those countries rear their stubborn head. Let me remind us that the west brought religion to brainwash us so they could take our crude oil and enslave our people. A religion that we swallowed completely and have become our way of life is the same thing they are silently dispelling over gay rights. The religion they introduced to us clearly defines marriage as a union between a man and woman to the exclusion of others. However, we did not impose one-man ten wives on the west even though we believe it is religiously wrong, morally and culturally, it is justifiable to us.

Now they back it up with human rights. What are human rights? Does it allow a man to marry more than one wife? Does it provide for same sex marriage? Do human rights encourage force and infiltrating the culture of the people? Do human rights espouse total disregard for the constitution of a state, which is the grundnorm? Does it shatter the principle of sovereignty? Where is the validity of such law in Nigeria and by extension Africa? Does law supersede the wishes of the people who make the law? Can the people in the west legislate for people of the south? Can Europe legislate for Africa?

Human right to me is the right of the collective people. Where a group of people are at a consensus over any matter, then the majority carries the day – that is the spirit of democracy the west thought us. A minority can never dictate for the people and when it comes to the issues of rights, subjective application is reasonable. What applies in the west will not apply in the north. No one country can impose its will and desire on a country that is sovereign and independent. By virtue of the constitution, any other law that vitiates a part of the provisions of the constitution shall be invalid. With sincere consideration of the Human rights, be it to associate by choice or to dignity, it should never be repugnant to natural justice, good conscience, and equity. Therefore, like Israel and Saudi Arabia, Nigeria by virtue of its constitution as all right to ban and proscribe penalty for same sex marriage.


Same sex marriage is morally and socially unacceptable; it is against the laws of nature and crushes every sense of good conscience n human. Human rights have limitations as the law clearly stipulates where one stripped of such rights. In this regard, they are subject to the limitations of religion and national law of any given state. Even the so called America have not come to full grasps of same sex marriage for they have thirty-three states where it is either still prohibited or illegal.

Above all, the constitution of our sovereign state – Nigeria, does not recognise same sex marriage based on the culture, tradition and way of our people upon which the constitution finds its validity as culture is the mirror of accepted usage. It is shocking that the western world who champion the idea of democracy, rule of law, sovereignty, and human rights  are now spewing out loose arguments on human rights because of their cast-off gay rhetoric. Well over the last decades they have grossly neglected principles they revere in other to bring down empires where their interest lie and manipulative tools have been their device of late. Soon, they will tell us ten year old have a right to pornography.
