Oye Lithur is a coward, lacks integrity and must be rejected - Presby Moderator

The Moderator of the Presby Church, Prof. Emmanuel Martey is asking the Appointments Committee of Parliament not to approve Nana Oye Lithur as the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection.

He says her stance on homosexuality and lesbianism is very dangerous for the moral health of society.

Speaking on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Thursday, the Moderator said homosexuality, which Nana Oye Lithur is accused of promoting in the past, is morally wrong and must not be entertained.

Answering a number of questions on her views on gay rights before the Appointments Committee on Wednesday, Nana Oye Lithur said “My stand on the actual practice of gay and lesbianism is personal and the issue of homosexuality is a societal issue which I believe our society should discuss, debate and deliberate upon and come to a conclusion as to whether they want to accept it or not. My focus is on defending the rights of everyone who finds himself or herself in Ghana.”

But Prof Martey says he expected her to be honest in answering the questions.

As far as he was concerned, Oye Lithur was simply being evasive, dishonest and inconsistent.
