Lagos - The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has welcomed the stance taken by President Muhammadu Buhari, who rejected gay marriages during his just-ended trip to the United States.
The party showered Buhari with praise for rebuffing the “immoral marriage proposal” by the US Congress.
“He thereby put to shame our detractors who thought that Buhari is a weak President who can easily succumb to the great influence of the USA to act against the general interest of our nation,” Rivers APC Chairman, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said from Port Harcourt.
“We are overwhelmed with joy that we at last have the President of our dreams and we are convinced that by the end of Buhari’s tenure Nigeria will be placed among the great nations of this world,” Ikanya added.

Buhari’s visit earlier this week came on the back of the US Congress endorsing same-sex marriages.
“The tour and the sparkling performance of President Muhammadu Buhari and his team while in the United States is yet another proof that Nigerians did not make any mistake in overwhelmingly voting him President in the March 28th presidential poll,” Ikanya added.
He expressed satisfaction with Buhari’s tenure thus far.
“For those of us from Rivers State, we are doubly happy and proud that Buhari’s great feats in the first two months of his administration vindicate our leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, who correctly foresaw our great country’s political future and wholeheartedly mobilised us and the entire nation to support the candidature of President Buhari during the polls.”
