All Naija Entertainment



The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN), Lagos State Area Unit, on Wednesday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to without wasting much time, reject British Prime Minister, Theresa May’s advice on same-sex marriage.

MSSN Lagos Amir (President), Dr. Saheed Ashafa in a statement marking the 64th year of establishing MSSN in Nigeria, a copy which was made available to DAILY POST, insisted that “such a suggestion would increase immorality and crimes in the country”.

He urged President Buhari to consider May’s suggestion on same-sex marriage as “a mere freedom of expression”.

But, Ashafa cautioned that Nigeria should not be lured by her promise that the United Kingdom will support any country that legalises same-sex marriage.

He explained that such would increase immorality and crimes in the country.

Ashafa while speaking also frowned at the silence of the presidency on the matter, adding that “the president’s silence is worrisome”.

He appealed to President Buhari to continuously reiterate the position of Nigeria at all fora where such was discussed.

He also cautioned that Nigeria should not be lured by PM May’s promise that the United Kingdom’s will support any country that legalises same-sex marriage.

Ashafa said, “Theresa May’s call for support of same-sex marriage is a mere wish and also an exercise of one’s freedom of expression.

“To us, it has no effect. We know the position of Nigeria on same-sex, it remains an abomination and there is no doubt about it. It must not change. It is one of the factors helping to reduce crimes in Nigeria.

“Theresa and others with similar desire only need to remember that we are an independent nation with our own autonomy; our freedom of thought remains sacrosanct. The same-sex marriage ideology is a practice that should never happen in Nigeria.

“Here in Nigeria, our constitution recognises multiplicity of religion and God as the supreme being, and as such His forbiddens are consciously avoided. Same-sex marriage is unlawful, and it is so held. It is an abomination and a call to it is a call to destruction.”
