LGBTQ+ perspective: Akufo-Addo is acting cowardly, according to Kumchacha

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been referred to as the most cowardly person in the country by Prophet Nicholas Osei, alias Kumchacha, the founder and head of Heavens Gate Ministries, because he has explicitly refrained from stating his true position on the contentious Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) issue.

Former presidents of the nation, like the late Professor John Evans Atta Mills, were allegedly bold enough to inform Western nations that Ghanaian culture and norms conflict with the activities of the LGBTQ+ group, which is why the nation abhors such practises, but Akufo-Addo is reportedly reticent to state his position on the matter.

“Well, why am I saying that? Because Nana Addo is the most cowardly person I know. President Akufo-Addo is the man to choose if you want a coward.

“What Kumchacha, I’m saying is that President Nana Akufo-Addo, our father, is…

I’m saying absolutely that he has let down Ghanaians because, under the presidency of President Atta-Mills, he had the guts to declare, “We won’t tolerate it.” I applaud him for having the courage to say this because he was a true Christian.

The same matter has been brought to President Akufo Addo more than four times, but he still is unable to tell them that we don’t like it, he claimed.

According to Kumchacha, males are expected to be partners with women in accordance with Ghanaian cultural norms and values, not other people of the same gender who are also partners.

He said, “Even animals prefer the other gender when having sexual encounters, and I don’t see why a fellow human would choose to identify as gay or lesbian,” in an interview with Onua FM on April 5, 2023.

“I’ve said it before: it’s ugly for a guy to marry another man, and for a woman to marry another woman. So, every guy who has a sexual relationship with another man and every woman who marries another woman are mentally ill. We have to go look at their minds. Yeah, he said, “because even monkeys, ducks, sheep, and other animals don’t even do that.

It was recently revealed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that the anti-LGBTQI bill now being debated in parliament had been changed.

Akufo-Addo added that he would still need to ratify the measure even if it were to pass.

On Monday, March 27, 2023, he and Vice President of the United States of America Kamala Harris spoke to the media at the Jubilee House. He added that Godfred Dame, the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, had intervened to change the Anti-LGBTQI bill.

Sam Nartey George, one of the twelve MPs who sponsored the Bill, has refuted the idea that it has been toned down.
