Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of attempting to please the homosexual community and desperate looking for money to fund his gargantuan campaign promises in the 2016 elections.
According to Koku Anyidoho, the President is urging the international homosexual community to enable him secure funds to run the free SHS policy and other promises which has been hit by financial challenge.
Speaking on Accra-based Neat FM, he said “The President is desperate; he is looking for money to fulfill his promises…His one million dollars per constituency, his free SHS education, and one-district one-factory among others. Now the President is prepared to wine and dine with anybody at all to make money.”
His claims comes after Nana Addo gave subtle hint that his government could legalize homosexuality when there’s a strong push for it.
Nana Addo said “I think it is something that is bound to happen like elsewhere in the world”.
“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 said in an interview with Aljazeera.
The issue of legalizing homosexuality gained massive public interest when late President John Evans Atta Mills strongly opposed to legalize it, after the UK threatened to reconsider aids given to countries that are against homosexuality. Reports indicated that Britain put on hold £19 million in aid to Malawi because of concerns including its treatment of gays as most Africans frown at the thought of legalizing the act as it defies every aspect of their socio-cultural and religious principles.
Koku Anyidoho speaking on the issue said the President is exciting the homosexual community to enable him secure funds to run all his promises.
