Samoa Agreement: FG Threatens Legal Action Over LGBTQ Allegation

  • Says the latest publication could set the country on fire

The Federal Government has threatened to take legal action over the LGBTQ allegation made against it as regards the Samoa Agreement.

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, issued this threat at a Press Conference at the National Press Centre, Abuja, on Saturday.

Idris also said the Nigerian government would officially report the news media to the Newspapers Proprietors of Nigeria (NPAN) for misinforming the general public about the Samoa agreement report.

“The Federal Government under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has maintained an open arm relationship with the media. It is in line with the philosophy of the President as an avowed democrat who spent a lifetime fighting for the entrenchment of democracy and human rights,” he said.

“This administration is alarmed by the level of reckless reporting and statements by some media organisations and individuals that border on national security and stability.”

The minister lamented that the latest publication could set the country on fire as it falsely accused the government of signing a deal to promote LGBTQ.

“We found that despicable and wicked because the allegation is nowhere in the document signed. Surprisingly, the paper put forward no evidence nor provided the agreement allegedly signed to prove their point,” he stated.

Idris said the government will lodge a formal complaint to the NPAN and also use every lawful means to seek redress in the court of law.
