I Won’t Criminalize Gay Nigerians If Elected President – Donald Duke

Former Cross River State governor now a 2019 presidential aspirant, Donald Duke, has said he would not criminalize Nigerians who are gay if he is elected President. Duke said this in a recent interview with Falz on the viral show ‘On The Couch’, which has generated controversies.

When asked his opinion on the issue of LGBT rights in Nigeria, Duke said: “I don’t understand the emotional feelings a gay person would have toward someone of their sexuality. I don’t understand it. But I would not criminalise them. I would ensure that they have the protection of the law.
“But if they want to exhibit their sexuality, then that’s an affront on the current norms of society.
“I can have a gay person in my cabinet, his sexuality is private to him. I don’t want to know if he’s gay,It’s not my business.
“My business is if he can perform
the assignment that he’s been assigned.”
Speaking on how he intends to lead the country if given an opportunity, Duke said: ‘I think we are an under-performing and under-achieving nation and the basis of our problem is poor leadership.
“On the issue of the highly contentious special anti robbery squad (SARS), I would scrap the agency because I do not subscribe to the force where people carry arms and they’re not in uniform.”
