Nigerian actor, Emeka Ike, has stated categorically that he does not support any plan to legalise gay marriage in Nigeria, as it is against God’s will.
The former president, Actor Guild of Nigeria, was responding to questions at Vchannel Celebrity Night Out at Troy Lounge in Lagos recently where he was said to have made an utterance in support of gay marriage. The actor said:
“Knowing our penchant for ‘copying’ others I want to plead with Nigerians not to encourage same sex marriage. I don’t hate gays but I don’t support gay marriage either. God does not want it, our culture forbids it.
We should not encourage what is not right. This is about defending whatever is left of our culture. Nigeria should not go the way of the UK, we are people of culture. I want our legislators to stick to their guns and not legalise what will be eroding our culture and make us godless people.”
