U.S To Pressurize Nigeria To Revert Anti-Gay Law.

The United States government has vowed to  continue to press the Nigerian government  to reverse its anti-gay law. The US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, said this during a live-web chat with journalists in Washington.
Our correspondent monitored the web chat in Abuja. Thomas-Greenfield also said that America was not bothered that Chinese companies were fast taking over the African market from their US counterparts. Thomas-Greenfield, who said the US had adopted the  protection of the rights of same-sex people as part of its foreign policies, vowed that Washington would continue to mount and sustain pressure on Nigeria and other countries to reverse their laws against the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community. She said, “As a government, it is one of the highest priorities and strongest values that discrimination against anyone based on their sexual orientation and gender identity is wrong. We believe human rights should be available to everybody.Thomas-Greenfield was optimistic that the U.S would win the fight to protect the LGBT community.  Punch News.
