I'm Not Part Of Any Plan To Promote Homos*xuality In Ghana — Prez Akufo-Addo Tells The Media

1 min

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has sought to calm speculations that he’s interested in legalizing homos*xuality in Ghana, saying that’s not on his agenda.
The President had a press soiree today, January 17th, to mark his first year in office and took questions from assembled pressmen on all sorts of issues.
Akufo-Addo, who caused a firestorm recently when he said during an interview with Al-Jazeera that legalization of homos*xulaity was ‘bound to happen’ in Ghana, sought to clarify his position at the event.
He said that homos*xuality was anathema to Ghanaian culture and he was not going to legalize it during his tenure.

“I’m not involved in any conspiracy to promote homos*xuality” the President firmly said.
The issue of LGBT rights continues to dominate discussion in the Ghanaian sphere ever since the President’s comments, with Human Rights Watch recently releasing a documentary illustrating how LGBT are discriminated against in Ghana.
