Homos*xuals Funded The NPP 2016 Campaign And They Are In Talks With The President To Legalize It – Kwaku Boahen Claims

blank
The President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo has not stated clearly his personal stance with regards to the issue of homosexuality and whether he thinks it should be legalized in the country or not, and a National Democratic Congress (NDC) communicator claims to know why. According to Kwaku Boahen, a member of the communications team of the NDC, the 2016 campaign of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) was heavily funded by homosexuals and gay rights activists and that is why the President is not able to come out and vehemently declare his position against homosexuality, because he promised the gay community that as long as he wins the elections he will personally see to it that homosexuality is legalized in Ghana.
Like with previous governments, the Akufo-Addo led administration has been called on to lift the ban on homosexuality in the country and respect and recognize the rights of members of the gay community. The UK Prime Minister Theresa May offered to help African leaders to repeal antiquated anti-gay laws as the UK deeply regrets their role in promoting homophobia and violence and discrimination against gay people in Africa.
Speaking with AlJazeera’s Jane Dutton last year on whether Ghana as a country was ready to legalize homosexuality, the President stated that: “This is a social, cultural issue, I don’t believe that in Ghana so far, a sufficiently strong coalition has emerged which is having that impact on public opinion that will say ‘change it, let’s now have a new paradigm in Ghana… At the moment, I don’t feel, I don’t see that in Ghana there is that strong current of opinion that is saying this is something we need to deal with. It is not so far a matter that is on the agenda”.
Ghanaians, however, were deeply unsatisfied with the response and expected the President to come out boldly and state that WE HATE HOMOSEXUALITY before they could be at peace. But according to Mr Kwaku Boahen that will not happen because the NPP-led administration is currently in cohorts with the gay community and working feverishly to promote their agenda and make it legal.
On Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem, the NDC communicator claimed that: “Two world acclaimed gays had a meeting with President Akufo-Addo at the Flagstaff House so I’m convinced he can never say anything to oppose it. I will quit politics if he [Nana] speaks on this matter”. But he assured Ghanaians that the NDC will religiously oppose any moves by the current administration to legalize such acts in Ghana.
