The group, located in Canada, is thus impressing on all concerned minds to sign their petition which seeks to impress on the Ghanaian government to respect the rights of LGBT persons. According to them, they have received in excess of 1000 signatures by concerned persons.

"I can say we are getting ahead. And we are getting a whole lot of signatures," said Saalu Taahiru Osman, a team member.

What this means is that after the group collects these signatures, they will be filing their petition to the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland, as well as the Ghana High Commission in Canada, and Winnipeg’s members of parliament.
