Buhari discuss gay marriage with U.S lawmakers not Obama — Presidency

Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, has clarified that Buhari did not discuss the issue of same sex marriage with President Barrack Obama but with lawmakers from the United States.

Recalled that Adesina had earlier posted on his Twitter handle that “the issue of gay marriage came up here yesterday. PMB was point blank. Sodomy is against the law in Nigeria, and abhorrent to our culture”.

Following reactions from Nigerians that the issue was not on the agenda with the U.S president;  Adesina made further clarification that the same sex marriage issue came up at the joint session of Senate and House Committees on Foreign Affairs, not in direct talks with Obama. He added that talks shifted to another matter once Buhari emphatically stated Nigeria’s stand on same sex marriage.

“The same sex marriage issue came up at the joint session of Senate and House Committees on Foreign Affairs, not in direct talks with Obama. Talks shifted to another matter once PMB emphatically stated Nigeria’s stand on same sex marriage. The issue was not pushed,” he noted on his Twitter handle.
