The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has finally rejected the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ+) activities in the country.
Akufo-Addo has stated clearly that as far as he is concerned, legislation of same-sex marriage to become lawful is not a matter he will ever consider in the country.
The president made this wild revelations at the installation of the 2nd Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Ghana which was held in Asante Mampong on Saturday, 27th February, 2021.
The president indicated that, “I have said it before, and let me stress it again, that it will not be under the Presidency of Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo that same-sex marriage will be legal,”
As Ghanaontheglobe.com readers already know, after the LGBT rights recently opened an office in Ghana most Ghanaian heavily criticized the current government led by President Akufo-Addo for allowing such act. This led to a follow up directive from him for the LGBT office to be closed down with immediate effect.
Ghana Police Service together with the landlord on February 24 stormed and locked the LGBTQ office at Ashongman in Accra in the wake of public rant over their operations.
ABOUT LGBT+ RIGHTS GHANA(FROM THEIR SITE)
LGBT+ Rights Ghana was formed on July 13, 2018 initially as a Cyber Activism Blog – a platform that uses social media to create awareness on LGBT issues in Ghana and the world. Currently maximizing on capacity to initiate a movement in the interest of LGBT persons living in Ghana, the initial plan was to empower the LGBT community in Ghana to cause the change that we deserve. This was done through the creation of a Facebook group and page, an Instagram account, a Twitter account and a YouTube channel. Eventually, a WhatsApp group was created, which saw the need to come together in unified fashion to make a social and political statement. At the moment, a few capacity building initiatives are ongoing under LGBT+Rights Ghana.
