Check Out What Akufo-Addo, Kufuor, Mahama, And Atta Mills Said About LGBTQ+ In Ghana

LGBTQ rights have been swinging in Ghana nowadays with a lot of people sharing their ideas about it but our Presidents under the Fourth Republic have also revealed their ideas about it.

It can be traced back to some 8 MPs who presented this Anti-LGBTQ bill before Parliament to criminalize the LGBTQ and its related activities.

Followed by some 18 professional lawyers also sent a memorandum to stop the Anti-LGBTQ bill.

This LGBTQ right has become Ghanaians most trending news and it has resulted in an argument, some Ghanaians have been supporting and others have also been putting up points why it has to stop.

But our Presidents under the Fourth Republic without the late President Jerry John Rawlings also have something to say about these LGBTQ Rights.

This is what these presidents have to say about LGBTQ rights:

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo

“I have said it before, and let me stress it again, that it will not be under the presidency of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that same-sex marriage will be legalized in Ghana.”

” It will never happen in my time as president… Let me repeat, it will never happen in my time as President”

He stated this in February 2021 when he joined the Manpong Ashanti Diocese of the Anglican Church for the installation of the second Archbishop.

John Dramani Mahama

It seems that John Dramani Mahama and his former boss, John Atta Mills words have some similarities.

He said that: “The President is to execute the laws of Ghana. And the laws of Ghana are very clear on homosexuality. The laws of Ghana appall and criminalize homosexuality, there is no dispute about that. Homosexual conduct which is unnatural canal knowledge of one person or another is criminal and punishable by the laws of Ghana”.

He released this statement through his information minister at that time.

John Evans Atta Mills

“Let me make one thing clear: no one can deny Prime Minister Cameron his right to make policies, take initiatives or make statements that reflect his societal norms and ideals but he does not have the right to direct other sovereign nations as to what they should do especially when their societal norms and ideals are different from those which exist in prime Minister Cameron’s society.

” I, president of this nation, will never initiate or support any attempts to legalize homosexuality in Ghana. As a government, we will adhere to principles enshrined in our constitution which is supreme. Let me also say, that while we acknowledge all the financial assistance and all the aid which have been given to us by our development partners, we will not accept any aid with strings attached if that aid will not inure to our interest or the implementation of the utilization of that aid with strings attached would rather worsen our plight as a nation, or destroy the very society we want to use the money to improve,”

He made this statement to the media in response to the comments of the British premier David Cameron that Ghana should legalize gay rights

John Agyekum Kufuor

No one was born gay, people just want to convince us to accept this blatant lie, but let us show them that we are real Africans, we cannot fight against nature and win. We will not confirm such disgraceful activities, even in Europe, the majority of the people do not encourage homosexuality. As long as they remain in the minority, let us keep pushing till they accept that LGBTQ is not right and persons who identify as such, rather need some kind of help instead of forcing it on Africans.

John Agyekum Kufuor also gave out his speech during the meeting of members of the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values in 2019.
