But Ashafa cautioned that Nigeria should not be lured by her promise that the United Kingdom will support any country that legalises same-sex marriage He explained that such would increase immorality and crimes in the country Ashafa while speaking also frowned at the silence of the presidency on the matter adding that “the president’s silence is worrisome” He appealed to President Buhari to continuously reiterate the position of Nigeria at all fora where such was discussed He also cautioned that Nigeria should not be lured by PM May’s promise that the United Kingdom’s will support any country that legalises same-sex marriage Ashafa said “Theresa May’s call for support of same-sex marriage is a mere wish and also an exercise of one’s freedom of expression “To us it has no effect We know the position of Nigeria on same-sex it remains an abomination and there is no doubt about it It must not change It is one of the factors helping to reduce crimes in Nigeria “Theresa and others with similar desire only need to remember that we are an independent nation with our own autonomy; our freedom of thought remains sacrosanct The same-sex marriage ideology is a practice that should never happen in Nigeria “Here in Nigeria our constitution recognises multiplicity of religion and God as the supreme being and as such His forbiddens are consciously avoided Same-sex marriage is unlawful and it is so held It is an abomination and a call to it is a call to destruction” The question they asked through their lawyers: Can a governor veto the appropriation for the Legislature as a way to return lawmakers to the bargaining tableDayton did just that last month In signing a complete budget into law he line-item vetoed the two-year $130 million budget for the Legislature In response the Legislature sued the governorMinnesota has never seen a case like the one Guthmann must decide“There are no other cases out there certainly not from Minnesota” said Dayton’s attorney former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Sam Hanson“This is a one-of-a-kind” said lawyer Doug Kelley who is representing the Legislature “As far as we can tell this is really unique”Earlier this year New Mexico’s Republican governor vetoed legislative funding and the Democratic Legislature went to court over it The court kept out of deciding whether the veto was constitutional and the politicians eventually worked out their differences Forty years ago West Virginia had a case with some similarities — but exact circumstances and the laws there are quite different from MinnesotaExtreme questioningThe unique case — as Kelley noted no other Minnesota governor has singled out legislative budgets for veto despite having the power to do so in the last 141 years — prompted Guthmann to ask pointed questions that took both parties’ positions to their logical extremesCould governors veto funding for the Supreme Court because they didn’t like a court opinion the judge inquired That would be “unsavory” said Hanson but constitutional as long as the courts have another avenue of fundingGuthmann asked if governors have to approve legislative budgets even if the budgets represent “excessive or extravagant legislative spending”“You can’t obliterate another branch of government” answered KelleyThe two sides agree on the facts of the caseThe Legislature inserted a provision in one budget bill that would require Dayton to sign a tax bill if he wanted the state’s Revenue Department to remain operational Dayton called that a “poison pill” — although Hanson acknowledged it is likely a constitutional poison pill — and signed the tax bill into law At the same time Dayton line-item vetoed two years of funding for the House and Senate He left in place $35 million worth of funding for some nonpartisan legislative functions That’s where the two sides divergeThe Legislature claims that Dayton crossed the line in his action and his motivation for the action“In our view since the governor has essentially obliterated the Legislature for the next biennium you don’t need to go any further . this is improper impermissible and most courts would say ‘Yes that’s true’ “ Kelley saidBesides Kelley said Dayton didn’t make the veto because he objected to the amount the Legislature allocated for itself He made the veto because he wanted the Legislature to renegotiate provisions in the tax bill and other measures“I’ve been trying to think about why you would veto something and I sort of thought about two categories: There’s the ‘over my dead body’ veto . and then there’s the ‘I want you to do what I want you to do’ veto” Guthmann said to Kelley “Aren’t they both legal uses of the veto”Dayton argued that the Constitution gives the governor unfettered ability to line-item veto spending items no matter his reason for the veto The Legislature can always go to the courts to plead for funding Hanson saidCourts have three times — on the verge of a shutdown in 2001 and during the government shutdowns of 2005 and 2011 — ordered funding for core functions of government despite the lack of budgets approved by the Legislature and the governor But Guthmann noted those orders have never been approved by the Minnesota Supreme CourtWhat’s nextAfter the parties left the courtroom Guthmann decided Monday afternoon to enable an agreement the two sides reached to fund the Legislature through October while the court case goes on The order according a copy obtained by Minnesota Public Radio allows the Legislature to receive the same amount of funding it did this year through Oct 1 or until a final decision is made on the constitutional case“It is the duty of the courts to interpret constitutional provisions that appear irreconcilable and attempt to reconcile and harmonize them” Guthmann wroteThe next state fiscal year and the first year for which the Legislature does not have an appropriation starts July 1 The House and Senate had said they would need to shutdown nearly all operations if they didn’t get funding Guthmann’s funding order put a stop to that — at least for nowGuthmann did not say when he would rule on the underlying constitutional question But his ruling is unlikely to be the last one for the case Both Dayton and the Legislature expect to appeal the ruling to the state Supreme CourtThe judge asked attorneys whether they had considered going to a mediator perhaps a retired judge to settle their differences Hanson and Kelley said that if the court orders temporary funding perhaps the Legislature and Dayton can work toward their own resolution“The best settlements are reached in an atmosphere of uncertainty” Guthmann joked with the attorneysGuthmann will also decide a separate companion case that claims legislative salaries must be paid no matter what happens on other fronts and they must be paid at the $45000 a year level that a constitutionally empowered panel set this spring Daudt has said House members will continue to be paid $31100 a yearDavid Montgomery contributed to this report Rachel E Stassen-Berger can be reached at 651-224-5812 and rstassen-berger@pioneerpresscom or on Twitter at @rachelsb
