The President of Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, Alhaji Shettima Yerima, had reacted to the call for same sex marriage made by the British Prime Minister, Theresa May to leaders of Commonwealth nations.
The Prime Minister, while speaking at the first joint forum at Commonwealth Head of Government Meetings in Westminster, called on President Muhammadu Buhari and others to respect homosexuals in their countries.
But reacting to the call in an interview with DAILY POST, Shettima said the Prime Minister’s call can never work in Nigeria.
He said, “It is not possible. I can confidently say it, not even in the north alone but in Nigeria as a whole, it is totally impossible.
”It is not going to happen, you know there are limitation to some of those things.
“In the case of same sex marriage, it is totally impossible even in western world, you can only name some few countries that can accept that.
“America has tried it, even Obama and subsequent governments have tried, even when the President of the country was not a Muslim.
”I remember Jonathan, a Christian President, was totally against it, so it is totally impossible.
”No African country has accepted it, so it is totally impossible with the Nigeria exposure and our background as a people…it is totally impossible.”
