The battle for the legalisation of same sex rights in Nigeria has been on for quite sometime now.

However, religion culture, tradition and a few other beliefs have all framed the attitude and words of people against it. 


Now, the Scripture Union of Nigeria has called on the Federal Government and lawmakers to resist the pressure of legalising lesbianism and bisexuality.

The union’s national chairman, Wilfred Onu, made this call at a press conference held at the headquarters of the union

The briefing held at Samonda in Ibadan, Oyo State’s capital on March 16.


Onu explained that the legislation brings serious danger to the entire global race.

“We are deeply concerned about the seeming acceptance of these unbiblical ideas, contrary to the clear admonitions in the Holy Bible in utter affront and disregard to the legal implications contained in the Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act, 2014; and other statutes and laws that criminalised such conduct in several states of the federation of Nigeria.

Lesbianism Promoted In The Western World?

“The promotion of this ideology by some religious and political leaders, especially in the Western world, is alarming.

“We can no longer keep silent and allow this immoral and debased movement to destroy the fabric of our human and societal decency, values, and public morality.


“As a union that is rooted in Biblical principles, we re-affirm our dedication to promoting traditional Christian values and principles.

“Also, we affirm that the fulcrum of the LGBTQ+ ideology is unbiblical, immoral, and appears to be founded on lies and a penchant for inhumane living.


“We, therefore, call on the entire Christian community to firmly uphold and advocate the message of God’s love and redemption for all.

“They should totally reject LGBTQ+ ideology that opposes or contradicts the teachings and principles/injunctions of the Holy Bible.

Preservation Of Traditional Family Values

“We call on all Christians and true lovers of humanity to rise in defense of the sanctity of family life and decent society.

“The union unequivocally rejects the harmful agenda of those persons, organisations, and agencies who are promoting these ideologies”.

Furthermore, the union the emphasises that its mandate from God is to serve children, youths, and families.

“We are committed to safeguarding, protecting, defending, and promoting their innocence from harmful influences that deviate from Biblical teachings.

“In addition, we advocate for the preservation of traditional family values and marriage as defined in the Scriptures”.
