Bisi Alimi Declares Intention to Run for Political Office in Nigeria



Gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi has said that he has decided to run for political office in Nigeria.

He captioned the photo: “Yes! Will you join me?”

Yes! Will you join me?

    Bisi Alimi is such an attention whore. You are legally married now, why don’t you focus on that instead of starting shit. He’s openly declared how much he hates Nigeria/Nigerians why in the world does he want to run for political office in a country with laws against homosexuals. He’s such a drama queen.

      Why don’t you call civil rights activists attention whores?
      Why don’t you call human rights activists attention whores?
      Is he suddenly an attention whore because he is a gay rights activist?
      And don’t people who are married focus on other things outside of marriage? Or is it suddenly different because he is gay?

      Dear Bisi, this is not US or Trump’s political world. Certain things don’t fly in Nigeria just yet. But goodluck.

      Learn to be accountable for your actions, when others point out your poor action and behavior, it’s not jealousy, hatred and definitely not because he’s gay. Clearly, this guy thrives on negative drama. I’m not sure when he became an activist or when activism turned into a drama movement.

      It’s actually an insult to put Bisi and Civil right activists in the same category. If he thinks activism is about prancing around, personal fights and disrespecting others, his country just because their opinions differ then he has a lot to learn. He needs a lesson on Activism 101. You both need to read about Joel Gustave Nana, and FannyAnn Eddy, these two Africans fought for gay rights in an effective strategic way in their countries. Part of peaceful activism is also to comply to the constitutional laws in the country while you fight for your cause. Nigerian political system is known to be divisive/corrupt/complex not just anybody can run for an office position. It’s for the elite and their friends. So, him announcing running for a political office has to be a joke and it’s also a way to set a trap. Let’s say he runs and loses, he will simply blame it on being gay and how Nigerians hate gays when it’s beyond that. That will be Coward and immature move.

    “Being the change I want to see is about changing the status quo and making people believe there is an alternative” and fortunately or unfortunately the “alternative” in Nigeria is locking people like you up for 6years. Your common sense might be questionable while “throwing your hat into Nigerian politics”.

      The Nigeria that u ran away from claiming asylum in another country because your life was in danger is d same Nigerian you want to get into politics.

      Isn’t that what a political asylum seeker should seek to do though? Try and effect change in his or her country of origin so no one has to flee from persecution like he or she did? You think anyone wants to be forced to have to leave their homeland?

    Bloody clown!

    Why are you still giving this idiot attention. The same person that threatened to beat a woman to coma.
    And secondly, enough with litering the street with these gay people.
    If you missed it a new report is out on a disease that is rapidly passed around by gay men and Americans (world liberals) are trying to censor the report. You think it is right?
    Apart from that 95percent of gay people suffer from AIDs. And one more thing Anal cancer has been killing most of them silently (ASK south Africans how many gay men they lost to Anal cancer in 2016 alone).
    Later all BN enablers will come and say let them live.
    BN I hope you start promoting incestous people too, because we cannot pick what to support and what to leave out. Abnormality is the new way of life so let’s keep it up!
    And don’t tell me it is different. Don’t!!!!!!

      Abeg check that your research again. 95% with AIDS???? Not true. In places like Nigeria and Botswana it’s mostly because of all these heterosexual men and women who are cheating/sleeping with different people without using condom.

      Kathy, So are the millions of women who engage in anal sex with their husbands also getting anal cancer? Or gays only? Second question, will you now stop having sex cos of cervical cancer, HIV, complications in pregnancy etc? BTW I hope you know those are more common than anal cancer? Of course homophobes like you think diseases happen to gay people only. That is how peole like you used to cekebrate that HIV was a gay disease only to find out straight folks get it too. And if someone wants to have anal sex and is ready to assume all the risks how does that concern you? Isn’t it the same way you assume risks when you sleep with your boyfriend or husband?

      Excuse me for being crass but is his an*s your an*s? Why take Panadol for another’s headache? Women like you who hate gay men so much and yet are delighted to use the dresses and makeup they make shock me. Chances are you’re wearing something made by a gay man even now as you rant so since you hate them so much why don’t you burn it? And then tomorrow you will come here crying that your husband is gay and why do gay men in Naija hide and marry straight women. it’s cos of homophobes women like you.

    @a real Nigerian
    He’s an activist? He needs to act like a real one. And do yourself a favor, research and read about real activists if that’s what you call activism.
    . Of course, you will defend his unreasonable actions/behavior since you are so damn sensitive about everything gay and Nigerian men, you become unreasonable out of bitterness.
    If you are stupid, you are stupid, it has nothing with you being gay. REAL activists don’t attract unnecessary attention, curse people out with outburst of anger and rant on social media just because you have an opinion different from theirs. They get their message across with emotional maturity, clarity and respect which Bisi Alimi lacks all three. So, if he wants to change the gay laws in Nigeria, he’s doing it wrong.

    First and foremost. whether you agree with a law or not, you have to respect it in that country. In the U.S, you are expected to respect, obey the laws of the land as citizens and visitors whether you agree with it or not. And if you break it, there are consequences. If you want to protest it, that’s different. Same applies to countries with strict laws like China, Russia, Saudi Arabia etc
    Of course, married people focus on other things. What I meant by that is, he is based in a country where gay marriage is legal but he’s always cursing out Nigeria for not allowing it. He’s married now, be happy that you are in country where you can live freely. So why the constant jabs at Nigeria where you don’t even reside there.
