“You can cry till eternity, but Tinubu won’t get northern votes in 2027.

You don’t have the balls!”

“We mustn’t allow these mischievous bigots to estrange us from the northern base that supported the APC since 2015 and actively ensured that power returned to the south in 2023 in the spirit of true federalism.

“We must take time to explain, educate and clarify as much as possible.”

No LGBTQ clauses in new Samoa agreement

Meanwhile, a fact-check report by Premium Times indicates that the new Samoa agreement signed by Nigeria does not contain LGBTQ clauses.

LGBTQ, which stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer, is banned in Nigeria.

People who enter into a same-sex marriage contract or civil union commit an offence and are each liable on conviction to a term of 14 years in jail for such relationships.

Contrary to what was reported in sections of the media, there are no LGBT clauses in the new Samoa agreement recently.
