“No statement has been issued by Government to “initiate process of legalizing same sex marriage in Ghana. Please disregard any story to that effect.’’
The issue of homosexuality has become an important social discussion in the past months. The debate was further sparked when the British Prime Minister, Theresa May said Britain would help Ghana and other African countries accept homosexuality at the meeting of the Commonwealth Heads of State.
Several prominent Ghanaians including politicians and the clergy have added their voice to the debate. Days ago, the head of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah said that it was disrespectful for the British Prime Minister to say that she will help Ghana legalize homosexuality.
