C/River Assembly Speaker, Ayambem, Kicks As Homos3xuals Host Party In Popular Calabar Hotel

The Cross River State House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Hon. Elvert Ayambem, has reacted to the recent gay party which was held in a certain hotel in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.     

“It has come to the notice of the Hon. Speaker of the Cross River State House Of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Elvert Ayambem, that on the 30th of June 2023, a certain hotel in Ekorinim in Calabar Municipality, hosted a gay party in their premises, where under age teenagers were also in attendance.”

“The Honorable Speaker is already reaching out to security agencies in the State and relevant government MDAs to ensure that organizers of that obscenity and their collaborators are brought to book as a deterrence.”   

Ayambem, in a press statement issued on Tuesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Matthew Okache, warn anyone or any organization in connection with such unlawful activities to desist from such acts or risk prosecution by the authorities.   

It will be recalled that, His Excellency, former President Goodluck Jonathan, on the 7th of January 2014, signed the “Same-S3x Marriage (Prohibition) Bill” into law. The law imposes a 14-year prison sentence on anyone who “(enters) into a same-s3x marriage contract or civil union,” and a 10-year sentence on individuals or groups, including religious leaders, who “witness, abet, and aid the solemnization of a same-s3x marriage or union.

It also imposes a 10-year prison sentence on those who “directly or indirectly make public show of same-s3x amorous relationships and anyone who registers, operates, or participates in gay clubs, societies, and organizations, including supporters of those groups.

In addition, Speaker Ayambem, reminded hospitality operators in the State that, no hotel or club should entertain anyone under 18 years of age at any time, unless he/she is accompanied by their parents/ and or guardians.
