LGBT: FG Paying Influencers To Defend Samoa Agreement – Atiku’s Aide

Special Adviser on Media (Broadcast) to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Abdul Rasheeth has alleged that the federal government recruited some social media influencers to defend the Samoa Agreement.

Rasheeth said he received numerous phone calls from some influencers who confided in him that a Northern aide to President Bola Tinubu was “distributing money and recruiting many people” to defend the Samoa Agreement.

Atiku Abubakar’s aide said the influencers were been recruited and paid to defend the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) alleged to be included as one of the conditions in the $150 billion loan deal signed by the federal government.

On his X (formerly Twitter) handle on Sunday, Rasheeth wrote, “I received numerous phone calls from several influencers about a Northern Tinubu Media Aide who was widely distributing money and recruiting many people to defend the LGBTQ deal.

Recall that the federal government through the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Atiku Bagudu, had refuted claims that Nigeria has to give the LGBTQ community room to express their sexual orientation choice as one of the conditions for the loan agreement.

Also, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, in a statement on Saturday said reports on Samoa Agreement, particularly on the LGBTQ clause were false.

Mohammed Idris said reports on the Samoa agreement were based on hearsay and wrong information.
