Nana Addo is not gay – Rev Frimpong Manso

General Superintendent for the Assemblies of God Church, Rev. Dr. Paul Frimpong Manso has said there is no way President Akufo-Addo will legalize homosexuality because he is not gay.

 

 

In an answer to a question in an interview with Aljazeera on why Ghana’s laws still criminalize homosexuality, President Akufo-Addo said: “This is the socio-cultural issue if you like…I don’t believe that in Ghana, so far, a sufficiently strong coalition has emerged which is having that impact on public opinion that will say: ‘Change it [the law], let’s then have a new paradigm in Ghana.”

 

He further noted that he grew up in England, which, in the past, detest homosexuality but later succumbed to pressure from LGBT lobbyists to amend their laws to accommodate same-sex relationship.

 

“I grew up in England; I went to school as a young boy in England and I grew up at a time in England when homosexuality was banned there, it was illegal and I lived in the period when British politicians thought it was anathema to think about changing the law and suddenly the activities of individuals, of groups, a certain awareness, a certain development grew and grew and grew stronger and it forced a change in law. I believe those are the same processes that will bring about changes in our situation.”

 

The president, nonetheless said: “At the moment, I don’t feel and I don’t see that in Ghana, there is that strong current of opinion that will say: ‘This is something that we need even deal with’. It’s not, so far, a matter which is on the agenda.”

 

But reacting to the President’s comments, Rev. Frimpong Manso indicated that those attacking the President have missed the point.

 

“Nana Addo is not gay and there is no way he will even endorse homosexuality and so Ghanaians should desist from dragging the President into this issue. I think Nana Addo has been misquoted because we all know it’s a crime” he said on Accra based Neat fm.

 

He believes the country is faced with more pressing and pertinent issues which should be the priority of all Ghanaians and for which government should be pressurized to focus and work on and not attack the President unnecessarily.
