Homosexuality will not be possible in the country, according to the President of Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF) Shettima Yerima.
This was in reaction to the comments made by British Prime Minister Theresa May at the first joint forum at Commonwealth Head of Government Meetings in Westminster.
May had called on President Muhammadu Buhari and others to respect homosexuals in their countries.
However, Shettima said that will not work in the country, adding that only a few nations accept the culture.
“It is not possible. I can confidently say it, not even in the north alone but in Nigeria as a whole, it is totally impossible,” he told Daily Post.
”It is not going to happen, you know there are limitation to some of those things.
“In the case of same sex marriage, it is totally impossible even in western world, you can only name some few countries that can accept that.
“America has tried it, even Obama and subsequent governments have tried, even when the President of the country was not a Muslim.
”I remember Jonathan, a Christian President, was totally against it, so it is totally impossible.
”No African country has accepted it, so it is totally impossible with the Nigeria exposure and our background as a people…it is totally impossible.”
