United States has said that its condemnation of gay marriage law in Nigeria and other African countries does not amount to interference.
Thomas-Greenfield, who spoke on Tuesday during the live-web chat monitored in Abuja, said US will continue to impress it on the government and the legislators on the need to give everyone equal opportunity.
She noted that US is just against legislations that is targeted against gay people. The Assistant Secretary of State also insisted that American government supports human rights for all the people.
She said, ” As a policy we will continue to press the government of Nigeria and other governments and the legislature to change this law and provide human rights to all Nigerians regardless of their sexual orientation.’’
