Nigerian gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi has slammed Oby Ezekwesili over her stance on homosexuality, saying one cannot use religion to rule a nation.
The former Education Minister cum Presidential candidate, said that although she does not support homosexuality, she would give everyone including gays and lesbians, equal opportunity if she is elected as President in 2019.
Ezekwesili made this known on her twitter handle while making clarifications to an answer she gave to Bisi Alimi at Chatham House in London recently.
Well, Bisi Alimi has now reacted to her stance on the topic. See what he wrote below;
When a leader of a country of 180m people with a potential of 18-20m of them being LGBT go on social media to make this statement, it should take us to a place of reflection. Sexuality is not a choice, faith is. No one is born Christian, Muslim or anything else but at birth we all have sexuality and if you think being gay is a choice, then so is being straight.. you can not use your religion to rule a secular state. #homophobia #nigeria #obyezekwesili #nigeriadecides2019
