President Muhammadu Buhari’s unequivocal denunciation of same-sex marriage during his recent tour of United Staes, has continued to draw commendations from a cross-section of Nigerians.
The latest plaudit came from a top clergyman and the vice chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Southern States’ Chapter, Archbishop Amu.
In a press release in Lagos recently, the Archbishop said the president, by his action, has displayed leadership qualities.
He stressed that same-sex marriage and homosexuality is a crime against God and humanity pointing out that according to the Bible, God ordained that marriage should be between a husband and a wife for the purpose of pro-creation.
US President, Barak Obama, has hoisted himself as the supreme protagonist of same-sex marriage and homosexuality generally and vowed before his recent tour of Kenya to continue to propagate and defend same-sex marriage.
But his zeal for the message was severely dampened by the cold shoulders he received from Africans and their leaders over the matter with his host, President Uhuru Kenyatta dismissing it as “a non-issue”.
Apparently to win a modicum of support for his cause among Africans, President Obama sermonized that discrimination against same-sex marriage equated to the discrimination against the blacks by the whites in the United States.
However, Africans saw the argument as unconvincing and even extraneous with Obama realizing that his abominable message to Africans had met a firm brickwall.
