A Ghanaian lawyer, Dr. Maurice Ampaw has asked that, Stephen Kabutey Ofoi Ceasar, a Ghanaian at the of a gay marriage controversy, be declared a persona non-grata.
According to the controversial lawyer, Caesar, who is said to be a former school prefect of Achimota SHS, has defied the laws of Ghana.
Stephen Kabutey Ofoi Caesar came into the spotlight after videos and pictures from his wedding to his boyfriend went viral on social media.
Ghanaians took to social media platforms and lambasted the newly-wed Ghanaian for engaging in what some describe as an "immoral and shameless" act.
And it would seem that Lawyer Maurice Ampaw is also of the views shared by the majority.
He stated that Stephen Kabutey Ofoi Ceasar must be forced to renounce his citizenship and allegiance to the country.
"Ghana’s laws are against gay marriage and related sex is illegal so if he as a Ghanaian has married a gay partner then he must be forced to renounce his citizenship."
He continued to stated that if the newly-wed would not renounce his citizenship, "we have to denounce his citizenship in entirety because he is an illegality and ought to be refused visa at the embassy".
The lawyer stated that Ghanaians must rise up and put pressure on the Nana Addo-led government to deny visas into the country.
“He is an illegal person and hence signal must be sent to the law enforcement agencies and the embassies abroad to prevent him from entering the country.”
YEN is building a platform where Ghanaians can share local news and own experiences with each other.
