Benue State Assembly Outlaws Same S*x Marriage

Posted by on May 31, 2018 under Categories: Naija news

The Benue State House of Assembly on Wednesday passed a Bill to prohibit marriage contract between persons of the same sex in the state.
Cited as Same S*x Marriage Prohibition Law, 2018, the bill was passed at plenary after a clause by clause consideration by the Committee of the whole presided over by the Speaker, Mr Terkimbi Ikyange.
According to the bill, “a marriage contract or civil union entered into between persons of same sex shall not be solemnised in a Church, Mosque or any other place of worship in Benue’’.

The bill also prohibited the registration or recognition of gay clubs, societies, and organisations, their sustenance, procession, and meeting as well as a public show of same s*x amorous relationship directly or indirectly.
It stipulated that any person who entered into a same sex marriage contract or civil union commits an offence and is liable on conviction to a term of 14 years imprisonment.
Speaking after the third reading of the bill, the Speaker said same s*x union was alien to the culture and tradition of the State and has to be prohibited.
The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that former President Goodluck Jonathan signed into law the Bill which outlawed same s*x marriage in Nigeria on January 7, 2014, in defiance of protests from some countries, groups, and activists.

    I’ve used Phallomax around 2 months ago. No doubts it is definitely the best solution for “that” problem. Got it from the UK within a few days and I live in Papua New Guinea. Well worth of money spent.
