“It will not work here. It can’t work in Nigeria because we must respect our setting’s peculiarities here as an institution. This is Nigeria. This is not America. This is not England. This is Nigeria, where we must have to respect some of our traditions. We must also respect some of our religious bodies.
“We have Christians, we have Muslims and I thank God that both Christianity and Islam, which are the two major religions, are all against the disposition of such kind of legislation. I don’t think that the Nigerian legislature will entertain anything like gay here in the near future.
“We will not entertain that and it is going to be blasphemous if we can begin to consider such laws. It is against our culture and the provision of the two major religions.
“It is obnoxious as far as I am concerned,” Doguwa said. Asked if he was aware of the sanctions, the lawmaker, who represents Doguwa/TuneIn Wada Federal Constituency of Kano State, said that sanctions have limits.
“Sanctions? There are limits to sanctions. They can continue to sanction as long as we know that what we are doing is right within the context of our culture, our religions, within the context of our institutional expectations.
“I don’t think that we can be threatened by anything. Sanction or no sanction, we will only stand by what we think is right within the context of our institutional existence,” he said.
