Gay Law: Ex President Goodluck Jonathan Signed This Law In 2014, Here Is What The Law States



The President of the United States of America, Joe Biden has threatened to sanction Nigeria and all other countries who refuse to comply to introduce the gay law.


This came after he directed all United States Ambassadors in different countries of the world to push through and legalize Gay Law (Same Sex Marriage) in their host countries.

The law was first introduced by the US former President, Barack Obama during his tenure and now the law has resurfaced after Donald Trump left office for the new President Joe Biden.


Few days ago, two gay men were caught in Delta State. They were caught in the act and they have been apprehended by neighbours who witnessed the scenario.


The case triggered lots of reactions from Nigerians as some urged the Nigerian government to legalize Gay Law in the country while some says the law shouldn't be legalised.

About 7 years ago in the year 2014, the former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan signed a law for gays in the country. Although he was also criticised by the US after he signed the bill which criminalises all forms of same-sex relationships, defying western pressure over gay rights and provoking US criticism.


The law contained the penalties for someone who engages in any form of "amorous relationships" and such person will be granted 14 years in prison.

"Persons who enter into a same-sex marriage contract or civil union commit an offence and are each liable on conviction to a term of 14 years in prison," the bill says.

"Any person who registers, operates or participates in gay clubs, societies and organisations or directly or indirectly makes public show of same-sex amorous relationship in Nigeria commits an offence and shall each be liable on conviction to a term of 10 years in prison."


Even though Joe Biden has threatened to sanction Nigeria and other countries who refuse to comply to introduce the gay law. This must be a very big disappointment for Joe Biden as this law might never get to be signed into the Nigerian law.


What can you say to this? Do you think President Muhammadu Buhari should sign this into the law?
