Of course she must be allowed to stay here. To send her back would be to condone the apalling Nigerian Governments treatment of LGBTpeople.

Because any form of bigotry, particularly that which is life threatening has no place in the world today.

Ruth should be granted refugee status to live her life in a country that allows her to be herself

This woman has already suffered immensely since her traumatic arrival in this country. She will face horrendous treatment if she is deported to Nigeria. Please show compassion.

This is a basic human right at stake, and if our government's principles mean anything it should stand with such brave people and allow them to contribute to our society.

You can't choose your sexuality. You can choose to offer refuge to people who are in danger because of their sexuality.

It is vital that Ruth is given the opportunity to stay in Britain in order to live in peace and safety as a lesbian. This is her human right.
