Former president John Agyekum Kufuor has attributed the spread of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) activities in Ghana to financial hardships.
President Kufour noted population growth, coupled with the inability of the economy to sustain the living conditions of people had led to hardships, a situation that has compelled many to care more about survival instead of morality.
According to graphic.com.gh, former president said this during a call on him by the leadership of the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values to officially invite him to a national dialogue on LGBT in the country, scheduled for October 29, 2019.
Former president Kufuor added that due to the challenging economic situation, parents hardly cared about imparting morals to their children.
The revered statesman noted that parents have to wake up as early as 4 am to get ready for work.
''We have reached an era when parents rarely live with their children to teach them morals and exhibit parental authority on them. Due to this, most children have become vulnerable and they copy some cultures, including LGBT,'' he said.
He advised that people should be empowered financially to enable them provide for themselves and their families.
