Kiki Mordi, the journalist who featured prominently in the 2019 BBC Africa’s #SexForGrades investigative report on sex scandal rocking universities in West Africa, has advocated for same sex marriage in Nigeria.
Kiki, as she is popularly called, said it is a shame that same sex marriage is still illegal in Nigeria.
Former president, Goodluck Jonathan, signed the anti-same sex bill into law in 2014, banning all forms of gay associations or marriage.
The law places a 14-year jail term for any offender.
However, taking to her Twitter page, Kiki who came to limelight following the documentary released a few months ago, stated that Nigeria is on the wrong side of history for banning same-sex marriages.
“It’s almost 2020 & same sex marriage is still illegal in Nigeria. Like two people (of the same sex) can love themselves and want to build a family for themselves just like you & I but can’t because it’s illegal for them,” she said.
“A damn shame! We’re already on the wrong side of history.”
