Nigerians Blast Jonathan For Openly Supporting American Homosexuals


Nigeria’s ex-president Jonathan has come under harsh criticism from a section of Nigerian citizens for condoling with the people and government of the United States and Florida over the death of 50 people who were killed during a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando on Sunday, June 11.

Goodluck Jonathan in his message through his social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter, strongly condemned the shooting incident at the gay night club saying it proves that terror respects no borders and happens to even the best prepared which is why we need global unity against it.

While some Nigerians unfortunately misunderstood his condolence message as being in support of homosexual relationships, others were of the opinion that the ex-president had no moral right to call for tougher actions against terrorism because he was unable to deal with the Boko Haram terrorist sect who ravaged the nation during his administration, kidnapping over 200 secondary school girls from Chibok Girls’ Secondary school in Bornu State.

Some others also expressed annoyance over the condolence message based on the fact that the former president has not said a word about the killing of the Igbo youths who were murdered by soldiers while they celebrated the Biafra day and also the activities of the Niger Delta Avengers.

The Orlando shooting was said to have been carried out by an American-born man, Omar Mateen, 29, who had pledged allegiance to ISIS. Mateen carried an assault rifle and a pistol into the packed Pulse club about 2am on Sunday and started shooting, killing 50 people and wounding at least 53, police reports say.

Do you think it was right for ex-president Jonathan to sympathise with the American government while keeping mute over home affairs?
