The United States of America shocked the world last week when a court ruled that all its 50 states can now wed gay partners. The gay world was thrown into a frenzy of joy with long time partners rushing to exercise their new found rights by getting married.

Just as many who are against the unnatural copulation of people of the same sex have been taking swipes at the pronouncement, some well known gay rights activists from Nigeria, have been calling on the government to follow the example of the USA and lift the ban on same-sex marriage.

Notable among these group is Rev. Jide Macaulay, a very vocal gay man who once founded a church for his likes, Bisi Alimi and Aderonke Apata, a self professed lesbian living in London.

The Nigerian gay group has vowed to drag the government to the United Nations and any international body that supports their cause to force the country to recognize their rights.

On Morning Teaser today, we ask: do you agree with the gay community that Nigeria should follow America's example and approve gay marriage?
