It's alright Sir Dicobody. The highlighted part above was my thinking and the reason I requested to know. Thanks for the clarifications.

There will definitely be many recommendations that will come to the President's table especially about the Oil Sector before the end of this year. He will need to make tough decisions. The fuel subsidy removal decision which was brandished as a strong decision GEJ had to make to save the country will be a child's play. We can only hope and pray he will live above sentiments and make strong decisions that will shape that sector of our economy. History will judge him and hope he can make indelible marks in the sands of time!

As Oga Waan has explained, that article had nothing to do with LGBT runs at all, as far as I could deduce from what I read, its just an opportunity for a barren woman to be able to enjoy having a family around her despite her biological inadequacy and as such I was rather impressed that a society in Africa is considerate enough to come up with such a scheme rather than the 'Iya Aje' jibes she would have been stuck with in if she were in yoruba land for example.

We may have different opinions on the rights and wrongs or the causes and effects of homosexuality, but while I'm heterosexual and would like everyone else to be, like Oga Nosa2 I don't believe in the so called majority riding rough shod over individual liberties. I have no problems with an homosexual relationship between two consenting adults. Just as I have no problems with anyone choosing to worship whatever they choose to worship as long as they respect my own right to such choice as well or the right of others to kill themselves slowly by smoking if they so choose to do as long as they don't pollute the air I breathe by so doing.

Where such homosexuality rights begin to intrude on my own right to an wholesome heterosexual relationship, then a conflict may exist.
I am not surprised to read such and I have seen much more in europe. Even christain Bed and breafast can not refuse homnsexuals from lodging in their B&B which is against thier faith in the name of individual liberties. Apart from been a christain because something is common or been accepted does make it right. You and Nosa can believe all you like and have your views, it is your right but that does mean what is bad is bad. There is nothing new under the sun including this issue. It has happened before in the bible, not because the bible said it but historians also establish that it happened. That the resulting concequence will not happen is impossible. It may not affect your liberty today, for sure it will sometime tomorrow. An uncle once expressed similar views some months back but when his only child and daughter ask for his blessing to marry her girl friend then..................... he first collasped.

Away for the propriety or political correctness of the donation, are two important issues to ponder. CBN's budget is not supervised by any body outside the bank. The bank generates and spends its money as it deem fits. SLS and Governors before him have resisted legislative oversight of CBN budgets. Consequently, SLS as the Chairman and CEO of the bank acts '...as the spirit directs'. The second issue has to do with President Jonathan's lack of firmness in managing SLS. I have mentioned it before that SLS is the type of staff that always needs an effective, firm and competent supervisor. Otherwise, SLS has the capacity to act in ways that can even harm himself inspite of his usually good intentions. SLS lacks 'Emotional Intelligence'. SLS best and most productive private banking career flourished under the firm supersion of Mutallab and Oba Otudeko. Unfortunately, since he became CBN Gov, SLS has operated under a very loose environment. Yar'adua was always absent and Jonathan is clueless. This is a recipe for disaster.
