Nigerian gay activist sets to go into politics in 2019


Gay man Bisi Alimi-Davis gives reasons why he wants to contest in 2019 elections – Bisi  who has been nursing this ambition for two years now claims the political class is indifference to the plight of the poor masses – Enraged Nigerians threaten to

bisikill him should he come to Nigeria

Bisi Alimi-Davis Despite death threats issued to gay right activist Bisi Alimi-Davis by Nigerians when he declared his intentions to contest the 2019 elections he is unperturbed. The newly married gay knowing fully well the price to pay for his choice of marriage is more thirsty for a good change in the country than what will happen to him if he steps his feet in his home country.


On Wednesday, November 23, 2016, Bisi shared a post heput up on his Facebook wall exactly one year ago about the state of the nation. He wrote that the only thing that has changed is the fact that the poor are getting poorer. He promised to bring hte real change to govenance.

“It’s been a year since I made my first return trip back to Nigeria after 8. I wrote this piece on Facebook a year ago, the only thing that has changed has been the harsh economic situations over 80% of Nigerians found themselves now. The poor has become poorer. The indifference of the political class is of concern and the religious organisations are abandoning their responsibility to the poor while they enrich themselves. This is the reason I will be going into politics because, you don’t pray change into being, you forced it into being. This won’t be change like before. No it won’t be business as usual. This will be change driven by the audacity to hope.”


Bisi claimed he has been nursing going into politics for two years. Let’s wait and see if his dream will come true.
