- Rev. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh has warned the government against legalizing homosexuality in Ghana
- His warning comes after President Akufo Addo stated on Aljazeera that legalization of homosexuality is “bound to happen” in Ghana
- Lawrence Tetteh said if the government goes ahead to legalize homosexuality, Ghana would suffer serious tragedies
Renowned international evangelist, Lawrence Tetteh, has added his voice to the many others calling on the government not to legalize homosexuality in Ghana.
He is cautioning that Ghana will be plunged into serious tragedies if the government decriminalizes homosexuality.
Dr. Lawrence Tetteh’s warning comes after President Akufo-Addo in an interview with Arabian news channel Aljazeera, said that legalization of homosexuality is “bound to happen”.
President Akufo Addo stated that legalising homosexuality in Ghana is currently not an urgent concern to Ghanaians however its legalization is “bound to happen if there’s an overwhelming demand for change in the country’s law.”
The President’s answer on why Ghana has still not legalized homosexuality has gone viral and many personalities are talking about it.
He 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.”
However in an interview on Starr FM on Monday, Dr. Lawrence Tetteh said lessons learnt from the United Kingdom’s legalizing homosexuality should be enough to deter the government from legalizing homosexuality in Ghana.
Rev. Lawrence Tetteh stated that as a pastor, he is privy to what most homosexuals in the U.K are going through.
According to him, most of the homosexuals have been reduced to pain, frustration and tragedy.
Some of them wear pampers and pad because they have cancer in their private part, he said.
Dr. Lawrence Tetteh stressed that Ghana is not ready for such frustrations.
Therefore, he appealed to the government not to succumb to pressures to lagalize such “abominable act” in Ghana.
