He however called on women to still go ahead and fight for their rights
Popular Nigerian gay activist, who is currently married to his gay partner, Anthony Davis, Bisi Alimi had initially announced he’d be leading a march on behalf of Nigerian women against rape, domestic violence, lack of education and child marriage.
He called on women to join him to demand dignity for the Nigerian woman.
However, in a recent Instagram video, he stated that he would no longer be heading the march as it was not in his place as a man to do so, as he was in a way, doing exactly what he was protesting against: telling women what to do.
He apologized and called on women to still go ahead with the march, which he promised to support and campaign along with.

Many of you might have noticed that I have deleted my picture calling for a march to protest the increasing violence against women in #Nigeria. I did so not because I think it is not the best thing to do, I think we need one in Nigeria and we need NOW! But I also realised that as a man, it is not my place to initiate such idea. I will be with women and for women in Nigeria if such march is called by women. Until then, my role is to engage my fellow men on respecting the dignity of women. I am really sorry for not checking my privilege before making the video. #sorry #apology #nigeriawomenmarch #feminism.
