As BuzzFeed’s Lester Feder notes, the charge “follows a strategy used by politicians in many African countries to rally anti-colonial sentiment by linking homosexuality to colonial powers.” Buhari’s campaign dismissed the claims as a distraction from the country’s real problems. As we have noted, Jonathan signed anti-gay legislation over a year ago, fueling anti-gay violence. Au…
