Sometimes, we’re wrong. Sometimes we’re right. Sometimes we don’t know what we are. The lyrics of an old song. President Goodluck Jonathan sure seems to know what he did signing the petition against LGBT rights. Hours after signing the petition that considers all homosexual relations an offence punishable by 14 years imprisonment, there has been public outcry across the globe but Nigeria seems like she will not back down. A lot of Nigerians believe it’s a massive step in the right direction by the President who has been largely criticised for under-performance and perceived weakness and support for corruption. However, judging from public opinion of Nigerians, the President sure did it right this time. The international community however, especially the government of the US has criticised the move claiming it is an attack on fundamental human rights. Really, does this constitute an attack on fundamental human rights? You be the judge. This isn’t a news blog so you can allow Tito just air his opinions here. I’m a Nigerian and I don’t support Nigeria condoning LGBTs but that’s just me.
