Nigeria has re-elected President Muhammadu Buhari, who once called gay sex “abhorrent.” While on a trip to meet US President Barack Obama in July 2015, Buhari was asked by American officials about same-sex marriage.  According to Buhari’s special advisor on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, the president’s response was clear. “PMB (President Muhammadu Buhari) was point blank,” he wrote on Twitter. “Sodomy is against the law in Nigeria, and abhorrent to our culture.” People convicted of having gay sex in Nigeria can spend up to 14 years in prison apart from in 12 northern states with Sharia law, where they are stoned to death.
