The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to bow to counsel by the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, on same sex marriage.
The association in a statement issued yesterday by the Special Assistant (Media & Communications) to the CAN President, Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, further advised Buhari to “never take it serious”.
May was quoted saying; “As the UK’s Prime Minister, I deeply regret that those laws were introduce…as a family, we must respect one another’s cultures and traditions, but we must do so in a manner consistent with equality, as it is clearly stated in the Commonwealth charter.
