President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned Sunday’s terrorist attack on the Pulse Night Club, Orlando, Florida, United States. He described the attack as “criminal”.
We here at NoStrings are baffled that the president given his past statements concerning LGBT people, will in this manner show concern and worry over the very horrible recent attack on LGBT people in the Orlando Night Club shooting.
It can be recalled that in 2015, in a meeting with US president Barrack Obama, the president openly condemned homosexuality calling it “abhorrent” and as well stating clearly that there is no room for homosexuals in Nigeria.
We do not think that the president’s sympathy is genuine, given that under his very nose, the LGBT community in Nigeria has continued to surfer horribly under his administration. Reports of mob attacks, killings, arrest and persecution of people over their real or perceived sexual orientation is on the increase.

To prove and show that he is actually concerned about the lives of LGBT people, then he sure needs to start looking under his very nose.
