General information for Sunday, October 24, 2021
Former head of the Forestry Commission Monitoring Unit, Charles Owusu calls on President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo to speak out on the anti-LGBTQ + bill.
Speaking in an interview with Peace FM monitored by MyNewsgh.com, Charles Owusu expressed his disappointment with Akufo-Addo for not stating his position on the anti-LGBTQ + bill.
The president speaking on Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo” on Thursday, October 21, called for a civil speech on the LGBTQ + controversy, but stressed that he could not be pressured to declare his position.
“It’s in Parliament. It is a private member’s bill. We have been fighting for a very long time to have backbenchers also sponsor bills of Parliament. . . Parliament examines it. Let’s see how the process evolves, ”said the President.
However, Charles Owusu reacting to the president’s comment on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo called on the president to clarify his position to Ghanaians.
“It’s either you’re for or against. There is no middle ground in this LGBTQ + issue. All Ghanaians know that the bill is already in Parliament. We know that, ”he said.
He added, “We all know this is a private member’s bill. Whether civilly or in any way, with all due respect, Your Excellency; The Ghanaians who voted for you to become president say they don’t like this thing ”.
“It will never happen in Ghana that we accept same-sex marriage. Listen to me carefully! any government that dares Ghanaians and tries this thing is redeemed change, ”he warned.
