The subject of whether Ghana should embrace gays was given a new twist when the President Nana Akufo Addo granted an interview to Aljazeera English.
The President stressed during interview that although the pressure to legalize homosexuality is not that severe, Ghana is likely to legalize same-sex marriage in the future.
Ghanaians have since been divided in their opinions about the matter. To this end some Ghana’s LGBTQI association have hinted of a peaceful march in from Obra Spot in Accra to the Flagstaff House to ‘thank’ the President for his ‘thoughtful’ comments.
“Consistent with our calm demeanor there will be a peaceful Movement Walk on Friday 15th December 2017 from Obra Spot to the Flagstaff house to thank the President Akufo Addo and his government and present the mission and vision of the LGBTQI Movement,” excerpts of the statement reads.
However, lawyer Maurice Ampaw reacting to this has said Ghanaians have actually misinterpreted what Nana Akufo Addo said to mean he supports gays.
On his official Facebook post, the maverick lawyer posted a picture of himself as a stereotype of homosexuality captioned “say no to gayism”.
