Nigeria has kicked against the United Nations’ resolution that endorsed the rights of gay, lesbian and transgender people, warning that the world body could turn into a “guinea pig” of policies that cannot be implemented by member states.
Before this UN’s latest move, Nigeria had voted against a South-Africa sponsored resolution that endorsed the rights of gay, lesbian and transgender people for the first time ever at the UN Human Rights Council.
However, Nigeria's vote was, not enough to defeat the resolution which was passed on Friday by the Geneva-based Council with 23 votes in favour, 19 against and three abstentions.
Nigeria’s representative at the Council Ositadinma Anaedu, who spoke on behalf of the African group, said African countries and more than 90 per cent of the African people did not support the resolution.
He said notions on sexual orientation should not be imposed on countries and warned against turning the “UN into a guinea pig” of policies that could not be implemented by member countries.
“African Group remains committed to the principle of non-discrimination. African group believes that no human being should be subjected to any discrimination because of any particular behaviour inherent in his or her nature.
“African groups believe very strongly that at all times we should focus and conduct our work in a way that will advance collective commitment of Human Rights and not undermine it.
“The declaration expressed grave concern about abuses because of sexual orientation and commissioned a global report on discrimination against gays,” Anaedu said.
He called for a panel discussion next year with “constructive, informed and transparent dialogue on the issue of discriminatory laws and practices and acts of violence against” gays, lesbians and transgender people.
The resolution brought forward by South Africa was backed by the United States the European Union, Brazil and other Latin American countries.
Nigeria, which spoke on behalf of the African group at the Council, was prominent among the nations that voted against including Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan.
China, Burkina Faso and Zambia abstained while Kyrgyzstan didn't vote, as well as Libya which was suspended from the 47 member states amid violations of human rights by Mohammar Gaddafi’s regime.
