The scheduled visit of Nigerian President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to Canada next month has been cancelled until further notice.

The Canadian government has informed the President not to bother coming through Nigerian Ambassador to Canada, Ojo Madueke.

This is as a result of the anti-gay bill President Jonathan signed into law banning homosexuality in Nigeria.

The law carries 14 year jail term for gays, lesbians and sexual minorities in Nigeria.

The meeting scheduled for February 13th and 14th aimed at strengthening diplomatic relations between Canada and Nigeria has been cancelled over the anti-gay law.

This is a big blow on the face of Jonathan and Nigeria as a whole.

Probably, the meeting was "aimed at strengthening diplomatic GAY relations between Canada and Nigeria" - we don't need those kind of relations.
