Same-sex Marriage Will Never Happen During My Tenure – Ghanaian President, Akufo-Addo


The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, has declared that same-sex marriage will never happen during his tenure.


He said this at the installation program for an Anglican Archbishop held in Mampong on Saturday.


”I have said this before, and let me stress again that it will not be under the Presidency of Nana Akufo-Addo that same-sex marriage will be legalised in Ghana.


“It will never happen. Let me repeat; it will never happen,” he said to the cheering audience.

His declaration follows the recent closure of a recently opened LGBTQ+ office in Accra, the capital city.


Meanwhile, the President of the Ghana Catholic Bishop Conference, Most Reverend Philip Naameh has pleaded with Ghanaians to make it a habit of respecting the rights and choices of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex Life (LGBTQI+) people in the society as they are human beings that equally need protection like everyone else.


Speaking in an exclusive interview on Kumasi-based Abusua FM with senior media practitioner, Kojo Marfo, Bishop Naameh explained that although the Catholic Bishop Conference frowns on the sexual orientation choices of LGBTQI+ persons in Ghana, that however shouldn’t be the basis that persons engaged in such activities should be denied basic rights like accommodation and job opportunities.
