A Nigerian wedding announcement has sparked outrage in Nigeria, with the nation’s president accusing his former government of trying to “steal” the country’s gay rights.
President Muhammadu Buhari sent an email on Friday to the heads of the ministries of foreign affairs and justice, calling for the resignation of the Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, who was accused of violating Nigerian law by signing the introduction to the countrys new marriage law.
“This is not a law that we signed.
It is a law of force that we have signed,” Mr Buharis letter said, referring to Nigeria’s Constitutional Court.”
The law is being abused to steal our rights,” Mr Jonathan, a member of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), told reporters.
Mr Buharias email comes amid rising anti-gay sentiment in Nigeria amid the country´s ongoing anti-LGBT campaign.
Earlier this week, Nigeria’s Supreme Court struck down the country�s ban on same-sex marriage.
The court also ruled that the country should allow same-day marriages, and allowed the practice of same-gender civil unions in April.
The president has said that the introduction of the new law was in line with Nigerian religious traditions, but gay rights groups have condemned the move as unconstitutional.
