Does The United States Have Any Business Putting Pressure On Nigeria To Reverse Anti Gay Law?

Obama

In January last year former President Goodluck Jonathan passed into law the Same s*x Marriage Prohibition Bill which criminalises homosexuality in Nigeria and would sentence anyone caught engaging in homosexual activity – 14 years jail time.

The move brought about widespread condemnation from the international community.

A few weeks ago the United States made gay marriage legal across all 50 states and the Washington DC. In light of this new law by the United States, they have renewed their vow to pressure the Nigerian government to reverse its anti-gay law.

Speaking to journalists in DC, The US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, said

As a government, it is one of the highest priorities and strongest values that discrimination against anyone based on their s*xual orientation and gender identity is wrong. We believe human rights should be available to everybody. As a policy, we will continue to press the government of Nigeria as well as other governments who have provided legislation that discriminate against the LGBT community

Yvonne Nelson Opens Up On How Her Dad Abandoning Her Scarred Her For Life

 

YvonneNelsonGenevieveMagazine

Actress Yvonne Nelson has been extremely vocal about being raised solely by her mother, but in the new edition of Genevieve Magazine which she covers she opens up some more about how her father never wanted her and subsequently didn’t play a part in her life.

It’s sad that a parent would abandon their child, I feel Yvonne’s pain, when she said

When I was born, I guess, my father was not happy about my birth, so he wasn’t there for me. He chose not to be a part of my life; a single mother raised me. She trained me from kindergarten to University. My father was never there. Even though I have an amazing stepfather, I always wished I could have had him in my life. That created a vacuum in my childhood. But I’m grateful that I had my mum and she did all she could to make sure that I lacked nothing.

She speaks about failed promises made by her father. Read more after the jump

Just Like Goodluck Jonathan, Buhari Is Here To Save Nollywood & The Entertainment Industry, Clamps Down On Piracy

MuhammaduBuhari_that1960chick.com

With generous grants, awards shows and red carpet appearances – former president Goodluck Jonathan was a major life line for the Nollywood movie industry. His departure worried a lot of practitioners who feared that the Buhari presidency would see a decline in the Federal government’s support for Nollywood & the entertainment industry, but he seems to be proving his naysayers wrong.

Yesterday PMB directed law enforcement agencies to step up their efforts to curb the menace of pirates in Nigeria’s entertainment industry so that artistes can enjoy the fruits of their labour. He gave the order after a briefing from the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Information, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan in Abuja, yesterday Tuesday.
