Nigeria: Ban On Same-Sex Marriage Irrevocable, Mark Says

President David Mark(DAILY TRUST) Senate President David Mark has said that the law banning same-sex marriage in Nigeria was irrevocable.

Senator Mark maintained that inspite of criticisms and pressure from some sections of international community, the National Assembly will not revoke the law.

“Same-sex marriage is against our law and tradition and indeed offensive to humanity,” he said.

Mark spoke at a dinner he hosted for priests attending the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) holding in Otukpo, Benue State.

He again appealed to religious leaders to use their weapons of prayer and fasting to actualize transformation both in “our hearts and the society in order to overcome the numerous socio- political and economic challenges confronting the nation.”

In their separate remarks President of CBCN Ignatius Kaigama and Archbishop of Abuja diocese John Cardinal Onaiyekan harped on peace and harmonious relationship between and among various religious groups.
