Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo Urges Nigerian Government To Repeal Anti-Gay Law

Below is a press statement sent out by her;

Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo a US trained Nigerian International Journalist, Global Gun Violence Activist, Pharmacist and Public Relations Specialist has denounced the ongoing onslaught of the Nigerian Homosexual law giving stiff prison penalties to Nigerians who are just being themselves. “The Nigerian government and lawmakers have given themselves the license to represent the people stating that God does not endorse homosexuality. God also does not endorse hate, ritualism, rape, polygamy, suicide bombing girls and baby factories” she said. It is simply hatred. Asked why she never follows her fans on twitter, she blamed it on homophobia stating that she does not follow hate
and all Nigerians are “hell bent” on homophobia.

Omololu-Olunloyo also wants the government to know that President Buhari’s visit to the United States should have addressed this law and not brushed it aside with American President Obama. “America is not telling us to legalize gay marriage, they are only telling us that when you have law abiding citizens going about their own business not bothering anyone, they should not be scrutinized and stripped of their rights of being themselves.” She also tweeted on her handle @HNNAfrica that Uganda dropped their anti-gay law after four months and one day Nigeria will do the same. “It’s very costly economically for a country like ours with no jobs for youth. We can never be chosen to host the Olympics, World Cup and other global events for this reason. We can’t be a host country to anything and already our image as one of the African countries promoting such hate is tarnished.”

Omololu-Olunloyo also spoke about last week’s denouncing of homophobia by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who lashed out at the stabbing attack at an Israeli Gay Pride rally injuring teens. Netanyahu stated that he will continue to lead his cuntry against hatred and homophobia. Israel ironically is a country Nigerians flock to for their annual Christian pilgrimages. “Contrary to popular belief, God does not hate gays” she said and “does not call anyone with a generic name” as she cited a pro gay tweet by Pope Francis.

She advices Nigerian lawmakers to listen to the tough messages President Barack Obama delivered at the African Union Summit about African leaders with anti-gay laws during his trip to Kenya and Ethiopia in July 2015. Hate should never reign in Nigeria.
