The umbrella body of Christains in Nigeria-The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Tuesday September 10, commended the effort of Federal government for their stance against gay,lesbians,bi-sexual,and transgender (LGBT) rights in the country.
The group described the LGBT rights as an affront to the Nigerian culture and an abomination to God.
The President of the Christian group Dr. Samson Ayokunle, in a statement released on his behalf by his spokesperson Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, hailed the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, for his campaign against these social vices.
A very recent move by the Federal Government to curb the menace, was when the NCAC boss Otunba Runsewe ordered that transgender Bobrisky’s august 31 birthday party be stopped which thereafter amounted to a war of words between the pair.
The statement reads in part:
“At the creation, God created male and female, so, the so-called transgender is evil and ungodly
“I commend the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, for his campaign against lesbianism, homosexuality, transgender and other social vices.
“Our Constitution and extant laws have no place for obnoxious practices such as same sex marriage or homosexuality, transgender, sodomy and related practices. They are an abomination before God and they are alien to our culture as a people.
“Unfortunately it is being embraced by ‘some of our misguided brothers, sisters and friends.’”
