FLASH: The President Discusses Gay Marriage and Signing Lesbianism

Amidst a public uproar from civil society groups in Nigeria, the Presidency has stated that it will not be present at the signing of the “Samoa Agreement,” a collaboration between the member countries of the Organization of Africa, Caribbean (OACPS), the Pacific States, and the European Union

The Samoa agreement, which was scheduled for signature on November 15, is meant to act as a comprehensive legal framework for interactions between countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and the Pacific over the next twenty years

Human rights, peace, security, and sustainable development and progress are all covered by the pact

But Nigeria’s Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) denounced the deal, claiming it was pro-LGBTQ

The CSOs asserted that the Lesbian, Gay Marriage, Bisexual, Transgender, and Bisexual (LGBT) agreement was primarily intended to homogenize and mainstream LGBT people in their countries, and that if the governments signed it under duress from the European Union, it would be disastrous for their countrie

In response, the White House denied signing the letter in a statement released on Thursday through its official X account

According to the Presidency, Nigeria did not sign the agreement because it was not represented at the signing event, which was held on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, in Samoa

According to the statement, pertinent Nigerian parties are reviewing the Instrument to make sure that none of its contents conflict with Nigerian domestic law

“Important Update: Nigeria has not signed the ‘Samoa Agreement,'” the post on X states. The document is being studied by pertinent Nigerian parties to make sure that none of its provisions conflict with Nigerian domestic law
