Nana Oye Lithur’s appiontment: John Mahama honours the “Power 50,” et al
By: Amponsah Stonash, New York.
Sometime ago in early October 2012, after a painstaking investigation, my colleagues and I – as members of Young Patriots-USA – questioned why John Mahama met the New York based super-wealthy and most influential HOMOSEXUAL activism group, the "Power 50",when he was in New York for the UN General Assembly meeting which took place in September, 2012.
It is important to note that Andrew Solomon, the founder of the Solomon Research Fellowship for the rights of lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender, and a friend of John Mahama – but who has found his way into the Ghana news media for the wrong reasons – is a member of the” Power 50” – a group whose objective is to promote gay rights across the globe.
Now, let me get back to my point. A statement was issued out on October 23, 2012 and published on www.ghananewsmedia.com with the heading; “why did John Mahama meet the “Power 50?” Read below the full statement.
“Impeccable evidence available to Young Patriots–USA indicates that, on his recent attendance to the UN General Assembly meeting, the president, John Dramani Mahama on the night of September 26, 2012, at about 7:00pm ET, met the most powerful and influential gay group in the New York State, called the “Power 50”. Though the President was lodging at Marriott Marquis Hotel, this meeting was held at the Trump International Hotel, all in the New York City.
The “Power 50” delegation that met President John Mahama was led by Daniel Cochran, a known gay, and the senior-vice president at Merrill Lynn (a wealth management division of Bank of America). He was accompanied by Jon Stryker, a billionaire stockholder, and the president of Arcus Foundation (A multi million global private foundation for the advancement of same sex marriage), Andrew Solomon (a friend of John Mahama), the founder of the Solomon Research Fellowship for the rights of lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender, and seven others.
The “Power 50” is a group of the wealthiest, powerful, and influential gay persons in New York, made up of men and women. This group, numbered fifty (50), has the core objective of promoting gay-ism across the globe. They noted for doling out millions of dollars to civil societies, and political parties, and in return whip them to promote their core objective; same sex marriage!
In the spirit of protecting the cherished core values, norms, and culture that identify the ordinary Ghanaians, and knowing very well that the President’s trip was footed by the tax-payers monies, Young Patriots–USA is demanding the President of the Republic, John Dramani Mahama to tell Ghanaians:
1. Why he met with the members of the “Power 50”
2. What was discussed at the meeting?
3. Of what relevance is the discussion to the ordinary Ghanaian in particular, and the development of the nation in general
Young Patriot–USA will never relent on our efforts to safeguard the “soul” and “spirit” of our nation from being sold out to gay–ism by certain individuals within our society, just to satisfy their parochial interest.
We are always on the watch out for nation wreckers, and will pursue this case to the latter!

I must state that these legitimate questions that we raised as concerned Ghanaians were never answered.
However, information that I have picked indicates that the creation of the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection with Nana Oye Lithur as its head is John Mahama's fulfillment of his part of the pact with the "Power 50" and its partners who doled out millions of dollars to him and the NDC during the 2012 electioneering campaign. According to the information at hand, Nana Oye Lithur was recommended to John Mahama by the "Power 50" and its partners to head the ministry based on her "track records."
They are seeking to promote and strengthen GAY-ISM in Ghana through their surrogate: Nana Oye Lithur!
Indeed, John Mahama has thrown morality and decency to the dogs, in this momentarily government of his. It is evidently clear that he is honouring the “Power 50” and its partners.
Ghanaians must wake up to this immoral development before it’s too late.
We just cannot allow GAY-ISM to take over our country.
Stand up and be counted, now or never!
