Since the issues of the right of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender resurfaced in Ghana, President Nana Addo who the whole country was expecting to speak remained silent on the issue. 

The discussions on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer identifying community (LGBTQ+), became the topic in the news, and have been trending for the past few weeks now.


Finally, the president has spoken, just as Ghanaians were expecting. President Nana Addo has commented on the LGBT issue during an installation and enthronement programme of an Anglican Archbishop at Mampong.

According to President Akufo-Addo, he will never consider the legislation of same-sex marriage becoming a law in Ghana, and continued to stress that, same-sex marriage will never happen in his time as President of the Republic.


In the president’s speech, he said “I have said it before, and let me stress it again, that it will not be under the Presidency of Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo that same-sex marriage will be legal”.  

Also, the anti-gay rights advocates, like the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), National Peace Council, National Chief Imam have all further advanced their arguments, for the government to dispel the ambiguity surrounding the laws on sexuality.


President Nana Addo has said, the issue of the same-sax marriage (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer identifying community) will never happen while he remains the president of Ghana.


Do you think the president is being fair to the gays and lesbians?
