Kano governor orders Hisbah to clamp down on LGBTQ advocacy

The Kano State governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, has directed the Hisbah Board to clamp down on groups suspected to be promoting and advocating activities of LGBTQ rights in the state.

Baba Dantiye, Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, disclosed this while addressing concerns on the rising tension over the activities of groups promoting same-sex marriage in the state.

Dantiye stated that same sex marriage is a breach of the moral standard of the people of Kano.

According to Dantiye, the state government will not accept any agreement that promotes the activities of gays and lesbians, as it contravenes the norms and values of the people of Kano.

“I spoke with the governor, and he expressed his disapproval of the said agreement, even though it has not yet been confirmed. He assured that there is no room for LGBT activities in Kano”, Dantiye said.

“As you know, 98% of Kano’s population are Muslims by faith, and our religion is against this immorality, so we can’t accept it”.

Over allegations of groups promoting LGBT activities in the state, the commissioner stated that the government has received citizens’ concerns and the governor has ordered Hisbah to investigate and take action against these groups.

“We also discussed this with the governor, and he directed Hisbah to investigate and crack down on them. We will take legal action as appropriate.”
