Students protest against gay marriage, lesbianism


Students, yesterday, took to the streets of Jos, the Plateau State capital, in protest against the proposed treaty on legalisation of Lesbianism, Gay marriage, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) in Nigeria. The protesters said the treaty is an abomination, and therefore unacceptable to the nation’s two major religions. According to them, if endorsed, the treaty could ruin their future. Speaking during the protest, an educationist, Dr Ekaette Ettang, advised the Federal Government and other heads of Africa-Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) States not to sign the European Union and Africa-Caribbean and Pacific countries (EU-ACP) treaty, which proposed legalisation of gay marriage in Nigeria.
