We Should Be Bold To Reject Any Aid Conditioned With LGBTI+- Lawyer Tells Government

A renowned private legal practitioner, Gary Nimako-Marfo has charged the Government of Ghana and other organisations in the country to resist any influence from international organisations and countries to have LGBTI+ legislated and normalized in the country. According to him, its about time a bold stance is taken to object and reject any form of aid or grant conditioned with any form of advocacy or legislation for the acceptance of LGBTI+ in Ghana.

He told Kwame Nkrumah Tikese on Okay Fm during a live interview this morning that the country could do without these aids from countries who seek to 'impose' a foreign culture on the country and its people. Lawyer Nimako-Marfo reiterated that there ought to be legislation reinforcing our commitment to our beliefs and cultural attitude towards such 'alien' behaviours.

He argued that the subject of LGBTI+ is not a matter of human right but a behavioural issue that certain cultures had allowed. He stressed that this cannot be a 'cultural universal' phenomenon that must be accepted by all nations.

"The right thing to do now is to be bold and turn down any form of aid or grant that is conditioned on promoting LGBTI+, it better we are poor and purged of this sin. The law should also deal squarely with anyone that engages in an act that breaches our laws.

"They cannot force us to legislate that LGBTI+. You chose to do it in your secrete way but make sure you don't get caught."

Lawyer Gary Nimako-Marfo contended that LGBTI+ is 'evil' and threatens the procreation of humankind. He thus re-echoed that Ghana will not entertain such actions to have LGBTI+ a feature of its lifestyle and law.

"Imagine this limiting our procreation as humans. And even if they adopt a child or procreates in an artificial manner, the child then is introduced into this system of LGBTI. No!! We can't accept this in this country. They should do it wherever they are, we don't want it."
