2012 and 2016 Independent Presidential Candidate, Jacob Osei Yeboah, aka JOY has revealed that, there are some big wigs in the country that are part of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Intersex Rights (LGBTQI).
According to him, some of these people are prominent Politicians, Bishops, and Journalist which has made it difficult to find amicable solution to this.
He allegedly added that, these people lure teenagers especially those in the Senior High Schools with enough monies to practice LGBT.
He noted that, some Bishops and Prophets have also failed to stand against these act for the fear of been refused a visa to the specific country.
He emphasized that, this act is an abomination in the eyes of God and life become unbearable for people who engage themselves in the act.
“Even male animals will not sleep with its other male animal because they know it goes against nature”, he said in an interview with Kumasi based Oyerepa fm monitored by Africannewgh.
While the conversation on whether or not people of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Intersex Rights (LGBTQI) sexual orientation should be allowed through legislation, to publicly enjoy the right to practice in this country, it brings back the subject of where it all emerged from.
Although it is clear that the recent responses from two minister-designates: Sarah Adwoa Safo for Gender, Children and Social Protection, and, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, for Information, sparked most of these conversations, the opening of an LGBTI office in Accra is one that actually centers all the conversations.
On February 2, 2021, a tweet from @LGBTRightsGhana showed photos of the opening of the LGBTI office in Accra.
The tweet acknowledged the presence of the Australian Ambassador to Ghana, Gregory Andrews; the Danish Ambassador to Ghana, Tom Norring; the European Union Ghana; and controversial musician, Wanlov the Kubolor, for gracing the occasion.
While it is unsure where exactly the office is located, or, what the creation of the office aims to achieve, calls for it to be closed are building up, even as arguments to support the discouragement of such practices in the country also pick momentum.
