Gender Equality Is Against The Quran – Taraba Senator

Gender Equality Is Against The Quran – Taraba Senator (Updated: Thursday, 16th December 2021, 08:04 AM)


The Senator representing Taraba Central in the National Assembly, Yusuf Yusuf has kicked against a gender equality bill.

The lawmaker giving his reason, said gender equality goes against the Quran.

Senator Yusuf made the claim during Wednesday’s plenary session, while rejecting a bill seeking to promote women empowerment and gender equality.

The bill was sponsored by the Senator representing Ekiti South and a ranking member of the Senate, Biodun Olujimi.

Senator Yusuf vowed not to support the passage of the bill until the word equal is removed, adding that the Holy Quran does not support gender equality.

“This equality infringes on the Quran. I will not support the passage of the bill until the word equal is removed. When you bring equality into it infringes on the Quran,” he said.

Former Governor of Sokoto State and Senator representing Sokoto North, Aliyu Wamakko, said gender equality infringes on Islamic and socio-cultural practices.

He said: “When it comes to socio-cultural practices, it is wrong. When you talk of equity it is Ok. When you talk of equality it is no. I will not support it.”

 After listening to the concerns of the senators, Senate President Ahmad Lawan asked Senator Olujimi to stand down the bill.

He stated that the views raised by the senators who spoke against the bill must be addressed if the proposed legislation must pass.
