- President Akufo-Addo has stated that Ghana will never legalize homosexuality
- He passed the remark at the Global Evangelical Church’s 2018 SYNOD
The president of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has ruled out the possibility of legalizing same-sex marriage in Ghana.
Speaking at the Global Evangelical Church’s 2018 SYNOD on the theme, “Effective Discipleship; The Cross and our Commitment,” the president assured that the church has no reason to be worried that his government will legalize the phenomenon in Ghana.
He further noted that his government does not have the authority to legalize homosexuality, and even if it did, it will never exercise the authority to do same.
His assurance was in response to caution by the Rt. Rev Setorwu Kwadzo Ofori, the Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church, to him not to under any circumstances, bow to international pressure calling for the legalization of same-sex marriage in Ghana.
Touching on the calls for churches to be taxes, President Akufo-Addo argued that some members of the clergy display excessive affluence.
He revealed that this tempts one to conclude that there is no immediate intent to focus attention on the poor and vulnerable in society.
He went on to say that it is no surprise that the issue has come, as the church avails itself to the possibility of taxes once it steps out of the charity sphere, education and healthcare.
