Homosexuality is considered one of the highest sins in any African community. Some leaders in the African continent have criticized the devilish act saying it has no roots in their countries.

Former President of the Republic of Ghana, John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills clearly set the record straight by saying Ghana was not going to accept that.

The President of the Republic of Ghana,Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo in an interview with Aljazeera made a ‘controversial’ statement regarding homosexuality in the country.

During the interview, the journalist said, “I want to ask you, what is happening in your country, and homosexuality which I believe is illegal and punishable in your country. Why is homosexuality still illegal in your country?

Nana Addo in responding said, “This is the socio-cultural issue if you like…I don’t believe that in Ghana, so far, a sufficiently strong coalition has emerged which is having that impact on public opinion that will say: ‘Change it [the law], let’s then have a new paradigm in Ghana.”

The journalist again asked if the President would get behind but he answered, “I think it is something which is bound to happen”.

However, this comment from the president did not go down well to most Ghanaians. Some say he is in support of the ‘devilish act’ of the society with various groups condemning his response.

Lawyer Maurice Ampaw said that homosexuality undermine Gods will of proclamation.
