The Metropolitan Archbishop and Primate of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Most Reverend Nicholas Okoh has declared that the Anglican Church of Nigeria is not going back on its opposition to same sex marriages.
He stated at the consecration of three new Anglican bishops at the Cathedral of Saint Jude, Ebute- Metta, Lagos State.
Most Reverend Okoh said no amount of pressure from any quarter could sway the church on the controversial issue, which he emphasised is against the scripture.
The Archbishop warned people to be wary of ongoing campaigns by promoters of the practice which is now in vogue among Anglican priests and others in Europe, stressing that the practice specifically contravened the law of marriage as instituted by God.
He said such sustained campaign in the United States, Europe and some political forces in Nigeria to force them to accept and approve same sex marriage is misplaced.
