A pro-democracy and civil rights organization, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA on Wednesday called on all patriotic Nigerians to stay away from Amnesty International because their stated objectives are anti-African and at variance with our constitution, religions, and cultural norms.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on the promotion of same-sex marriages and abortion by Amnesty International, HURIWA National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko said AI has been writing negative reports against Nigeria in order to blackmail the country into legalizing abominable norms and practices that are alien to the religion, culture, and tradition of the Nigerians.

They called on all Nigerians that are members of Amnesty International to quit the organization as they do not mean well for the country.

“Cultural rights protect the rights for each person, individually and in community with others, as well as groups of people, to develop and express their humanity, their world view and the meanings they give to their existence and their development through, inter alia, values, beliefs, convictions, languages, knowledge, etc.

“The recent Amnesty International’s goals published on its Facebook account, which includes; making same-sex relations legal in all countries, making abortion legal in all countries and abolishing the death penalty in all countries has once again raised concerns over the issue of globalization and indigenous concept of sexuality and abortion which forms the fulcrum of this paper.

“Suffice it to mention that the scope of this paper is not to attack the unfortunate reality of same-sex relations and abortion, but to query in concrete terms, the deliberate struggle to rebrand a known fault vis-à-vis the African value on the sanctity of life and the sacredness of marital union culminating in the decimation of a fundamental truth, whose facts are so crystal clear and even known by inveterate fools, that human rectum is not for sex.

“Africans strongly believe that natural phenomena obey the laws of nature itself, and where it fails (if at all), it becomes an issue of question and panic – just because it is unusual and unnatural. For instance, the sun is known to rise from the East and set in the West, following its natural course on a daily basis. If it eventually travels in the opposite direction, it becomes abnormal and disillusioned.

“In the African setting, marriage is known to be a union of a man and a woman or women, who by mutual consent of themselves, their families and communities, enter a life-long relationship to love and raise a responsible family for succession and growth of the community.

“The African marriage deigns itself along the line of nature’s plan by bringing the man and woman (or women) together for procreation. The so-called Gay marriage defies this natural pairing and instead encourages the union of same-sex individuals in what they call “marriage”. It shows nothing but extremism in the abuse of nature; it further deconstructs the African family template.

£In recognition of this natural phenomenon, Nigeria, which prides itself as the giant of Africa and the most populous black nation, since the colonial era, had had certain laws to check unnatural sexual behaviors among her citizens.

The laws were embedded in the two major penal statutes – The Criminal Codes as applicable to Southern Nigeria, and the Penal Code which was enforceable in Northern Nigeria, enacted to retain Nigeria’s diverse cultural and religious beliefs.

“It is our belief that Amnesty International which has authored many damning reports against the Nigerian army is not a fit and proper organization to so do give their now advertised notorious trilogy of anti-African cultural objectives such as promoting recognition of the same-sex relationship, promoting and the abortion rights.

“We are now convinced that the aim of all of these reports is targeted at destroying Nigeria or blackmailing Nigeria to unban same-sex relationship and permit abortions which are offensive to our core constitutionally mandated obligations on government to preserve promote and uplift our cultures and traditions which are not at variance with international human rights law.

“We ask our members who are members of amnesty international to denounce such affiliations and we will ask the national assembly to pass a resolution condemning these stated objectives of amnesty international.

“However, we have no problem with them operating here since there is freedom of association but we are asking anyone who loves Nigeria to stay away from Amnesty International because their stated objectives are at variance with our constitutional and cultural norms.”
