LESBIAN GROUP TAKES GOVERNMENT TO APPEAL COURT
An organisation, Lesbian Equality and Empowerment Initiative, run by Pamela Adie, had in 2018 sued the CAC for refusing to register the organisation, but lost the case she has again dragged the Corporate Affairs Commission before the Court of Appeal over the refusal of the CAC to register it.
Pamela yesterday tweet, “Notice of appeal has been filed in the case of Pamela Adie V CAC. As some of you may be aware, I applied to register a non-profit called Lesbian Equality and Empowerment Initiative but was denied by the Nigerian government agency, CAC, because it said ‘lesbian’ was offensive.
“I felt this was an infringement of my constitutional right to freedom of association. My team and I filed a suit against CAC in 2018 at the Federal High Court, Abuja.”
