ANTI-GAY BILL: Europe Will Not Condone Punishment of Gays In Nigeria - British High Commissioner

The British High Commissioner in Nigeria today said western countries will not condone the punishment of gays as prescribed yesterday by the Nigerian Senate.

Speaking to Journalists after a closed door meeting with Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa in Dutse, the British High Commissioner said that countries have rights to exhibit their cultural and religious norms but laws punishing expression of one’s sexuality shouldn’t be a yardstick for transgression on the individuals.  

“It is wrong to punish people for mere expression of their relationships or for choosing to become what they have chosen for themselves. Punishment is infringement upon their fundamental human rights and the western countries would not condone the action,” he said.
