UK Prime Minister Urges Nigeria, Others to Dump Anti-Gay Laws

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has asked Nigeria, as well as all other countries within the Commonwealth to expunge from their laws provisions that don’t support same-sex marriages.  
May who said she “deeply regrets” the UK’s role in introduction of these anti-gay laws in its former colonies,  in the first instance noted: “Across the world, discriminatory laws made many years ago, continue to affect the lives of many people  tens of millions of young people. Criminalising same-sex relations and failing to protect women and girls.”
“I am all too aware that these laws were put in place by my own country; they were wrong then and they are wrong now.
“As the UK’s prime minister, I deeply regret that those laws were introduce…as a family, we must respect one another’s cultures and traditions, but we must do so in a manner consistent with equality, as it is clearly stated in the Commonwealth charter.”
