The Bono East Regional Youth Wing of the NDC has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo not to allow the planned LGBT conference scheduled for 27th to 30th of July, 2020.
He said Akufo-Addo must condemn the group ‘whose boldness is as a result of his lackadaisical attitude towards the fight against LGBT in Ghana’.
The group in a statement signed by the Regional Youth Organizer urged the president to resist all attempts to legalize homosexual in the country just as the previous government did.
Ghana is set to witness the first-ever gays, lesbians and affiliates international conference to be held in Accra between July 27 and 31 July 2020.
Some religious leaders including the Chief Imam have said they will resist the conference as it does not conform to their religious background.
But the group have insisted they will go ahead with the conference.
Reacting to this, the Bono East Regional Youth Wing has urged the government to the conference does not come on.
Below is the full statement:
BONO EAST YOUTH WING WARNS NANA ADDO AGAINST LGBT CONFERENCE IN GHANA.
The Regional Youth Wing of the NDC in Bono East Regiona led by its Regional Youth Organizer,Commander Bilal Muazu Sulemana on Monday 8th March,2020 has sent a stern warning to the President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo not to allow LGBT 5th Regional Conference slated for Accra from 27th-31st July, 2020.
Is a fact worth remembering that all past Presidents of Ghana strongly resisted to allow homosexuals and their affiliate bodies to operate freely in Ghana thereby by making such practices illegal within the Ghanaian Laws."The refusal of the Late President Professor J.E.A Mills to legalized this horrific practice in front of Prime Minister of United Kingdom Mr. David Cameron when the former was being coerced to legalized homosexuality in Ghana in exchange for Economic Aid from UK Government.This followed a total rejection of such inducement by foreign powers to H.E. John Dramani Mahama which was refused totally and instantly in 2015.
On the 26th November,2017 graphic.com.gh. reported of an interview President Akuffo Addo granted to Jane Dutton of Al-Jazeera TV claiming THE LEGALIZATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY IN GHANA IS BOUND TO HAPPEN. The Clergy, Civil Society Organizations and the Ghanaian Public including our Traditional Authorities spoke strongly against the comment by H.E. Nana Addo.
In 2019 during the implementation of the the Basic School Curriculum for Ghanaian Schools,it was realized that the Nana Addo led NPP administration has smuggled Comprehensive Sexuality Education into the New Curriculum to be taught to our kids in a form which is disgusting to our culture as Ghanaians.Quickly there was hew and cry across the length and breadth of Ghana which was championed by the National Coalition For Family Values And Proper Human Sexuality ln Ghana led by General Secretary Lawyer Moses Foh-Amoanin.The pressure mounted on the government made the Ghana Education Service to quickly redraw that abomination though Hon. Mathew Opoku Prempeh Minister Of Education had already signed a pact with foreign donors for 3 million Dollars in order to implement such a taboo to our kids.
All the these overtly or covertly moves in introducing homosexuality to the Ghanaian People by Nana Addo is very clear to all right thinking Ghanaians and we say on equivocal terms that this has emboldened the Pan Africa International Lesbians And Gays Association to stage their so called 5th Regional Conference in Accra Ghana from the 27th to 31st March,2020 with the theme "SANKOFA,LOOKING BACK TO OUR ROOTS.RECLAIMING OUR RIGHTS ".
It is refreshing to hear that the Lawyer Moses Foh-Amoanin led Coalition has petitioned the Ministry of Foreign Affairs not to grant visas to members of the South African based LGBT Group to come to Ghana for such an illegal and abominable meeting.
On this note,we call on H.E. Nana Addo to come out and condemn such move by this group whose boldness is as a result of his lackadaisical attitude towards the fight against LGBT in Ghana. We further assure Nana Addo that should he fail to curtail this abomination that is about to happen to our beloved country Ghana....the ONE THOUSAND BONO EAST YOUTH CONTINGENT MATCH AGAINST LGBT IN GHANA WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE JUBILEE HOUSE. Thank you.
