- Christian Council is warning against the legalization of homosexuality in Ghana
- Nana Addo has in an interview with Aljazeera been understood as saying that Ghana will, in time, legalize homosexuality
The Christian Council is entreating president of the republic, Nana Addo not to forget Ghana's tradition when engaging in debates related to homosexuality.
In a statement released by the general secretary, Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, the council maintains that same-sex marriage will never be accepted in Ghana.
According to the Christian Council, "Ghana's culture and Family life system cannot sustain same-sex marriages".
Nana Addo, in an interview with Aljazeera English, made the case that although calls are rife for Ghana to legalize homosexuality, the Ghanaian culture is yet to embrace this form of sexuality.
According to the president, “I think it is something that is bound to happen like elsewhere in the world”.
But the Christian Council warns that any move to legalize homosexuality will corrupt the tradition and customs of the country.
"Homosexuality threatens African social protection which is deeply embedded in family and children a cultural practice that gives us our cultural identity," excepts of the press release warned.
So far, there has not been the word from the Flagstaff House in terms of clarity on what exactly the president meant to say in that crucial interview with Aljazeera English.
