Some Ghanaians have chastised and accused Lawyer Akoto Ampaw of being paid to lead the fight against the anti-LGBTQ bill in Ghana, but Akoto Ampaw has come out to debunk such allegations, stating that such allegations are ridiculous.
Reacting to the responses of Akoto Ampaw, debunking any monetary gains in his fight against the anti-LGBTQ bill, Kevin Taylor has indicated on his 'With All Due Respect' program that Akoto Ampaw is lying because he has been paid to speak against the anti-LGBTQ bill.
According to Kevin Taylor, he has heard Akoto Ampaw saying that he has not been paid to speak against the anti-LGBTQ bill. He is lying because he has been paid to represent them.
Kevin Taylor indicated that these LGBTQ issues arose in Ghana about two years ago, and Akoto Ampaw never spoke about it, so why now, if he's not been paid?
"You Akoto Ampaw, this LGBTQ issues has been with Ghanaians since Akufo Addo became President. When Akufo Addo said it was bound to happen and the conversation started in Ghana, you never made a statement on it. Where were you back then?"
Today, Akoto Ampaw has taken the front seat in the discussions about LGBTQ in Ghana and saying that he's not taken anything from the LGBTQ community. "You are a criminal and have taken money from the LGBTQ community to be their voice in Ghana."
Kevin Taylor stated that Akoto Ampaw has been paid and is working for President Akufo Addo to fight against the anti-LGBTQ bill.
He revealed that he has even heard that Akoto Ampaw lives alone since his wife died, so he suspects him of being one of them.
"Akoto Ampaw doesn't even understand this LGBTQ issues, he thinks this is another supreme court case where he will get people to guide him through it. These are real issues, so we need people who are deep-minded to make a case against the anti-LGBTQ bill."
Kevin Taylor added that he is not saying that Akoto Ampaw has taken a wrong position on this LGBTQ matter, but Akoto Ampaw should make a "sensible" statement about it.
