Eunice Atuejide, who founded the National Interest Party, and is seeking to become the country’s first female president, said that it is still a question whether gay sex is acceptable from the point of view of morality, but it is definitely not a reason to be put behind bars.She made the comments on YouTube show On The Couch after fellow candidate Donald Duke used the same platform to say he “would not criminalize” LGBT+ people, later clarifying that he is not going to change the laws. When asked about the issue, Atuejide, whose party logo features a huge rainbow and the message: “A Nigeria For All,” told hosts Falz and Laila Johnson-Salami: “My party members are going to hate me. Why did you bring this up?” But she was clear in her views, telling the hosts that homosexuality is not socially and culturally accepted in Nigeria, but it is not a crime. “Why would you go to jail because you decide that instead of following a woman, you want to follow a man? As long as you do it away from me, it’s not a crime,” said Atuejide.
