An NDC pressure group has an idea for the President to be a leader on the issue of gay rights if he wants to do so by proposing a marriage between himself and Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia.
According to the group, known as ‘The Crusaders’, that would serve as a ‘pilot’ for the legalization of homos*xuality which in their view the President is in favour of.
“He (Akufo-Addo) said it was bound to happen. He has intentionally said that if there is a pressure group [pushing for it], he would consider it. He should consider it. But we want to advise that the consideration should come from the Flagstaff House first. He should marry Bawumia first as a pilot project,” the group said.
“What is in a man’s an*s that you want which is better than a woman’s v*gina? The ingredients that are in the v*gina, you can’t find them in the an*s; you can only find toxic waste. There are health implications. The men who practise homos*xuality in America, in Europe, are now wearing pampers and diapers.”
These statements were made at a presser called by the group at the NDC’s newly built offices in the Upper East region.
The group condemned the President for his stance enumerated in the interview with Al-Jazeera, using the Islamic standpoint on homos*xuality to buttress their views.
“We strongly wish to say that God/Allah will never forgive you, Mr. President, your family and your government if you ever commit this gargantuan mistake— and that will be the end of your party in tasting power again in this country!” the group added in their statement.
“Mr. President, as a matter of urgency, you need to retract your statement to reassure Ghanaians that this evil act will never happen in Ghana. As Ghanaians, we have kept our entire country in your hands and legalising this evil means you are toying with our lives which you claim to love so much and for which we gave you the nod at the 2016 general elections. As a matter of fact, you are bringing curses upon this country.
“In Islam, homos*xuality is forbidden. Period. There’s no debate on the matter. The Quran al-A’raaf 7: 80-81 says, ‘Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds by committing great sins’. Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, we want your position on President Akufo-Addo’s statement on legalisation of homos*xuality in Ghana vis-à-vis the position of the Holy Quran on homos*xuality. We need your answer on what the President said on Al Jazeera English.” they concluded.
