Ghanaians are angry at the President on gay rights. Following the visit of British Prime Minister Theresa May to the Presidency of Ghana, she made a passive comment on gay rights that has been criminalized by Britain and its former colonies.
The laws were passed under British rule and are still used in 37 of the Commonwealth’s 53 member nations.
There is a global trend towards decriminalizing homosexual acts, but some countries, like Nigeria and Uganda, have imposed stricter laws.
Now, Ghanaians are ranting with fury asking the president of the land, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo not to pay heed to foolish rights and enforce it on the citizens of Ghana.
Earlier on, ajonafrica interviewed some patriotic citizens of Ghana, and almost 98% of them stand against gay rights enforcement.
At the ending of 2017, the president was interviewed on gay rights by international news cable Alhazera. Although, critics said the president’s answer to the question of whether or not he will sign gay rights enforcement was not courageous and but skeptical. And probably he will institute gay rights in the country in the near future.
Nonetheless, the response by Ghanaians after the visit of Theresa May, suggests the majority of the citizens are not ready to accept gay rights in the country.
