The president of the Eastern Regional Youth for Development Mr Evans Yaw Appiah has cautioned the government, Christian Council, the Inspector General of Police, the media and the general public to reject homosexuals in the country.
He said the laws of the land are against such practices in Ghana therefore, all must act in compliance with the law in rejecting the movement of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexuals, Transgender and Queer Individuals (LGBTQI).
According to him, Ghana is one of the African countries with strict laws against same sex marriage.
Also, he said God’s arrangement for marriage which is in line with African cultural values is between a man and a woman therefore, for a man to marry a man, and a woman to marry a woman is ungodly and unnatural.
“I remember when such gay and lesbianism practices emerged in the Eastern region years ago, my team and I strongly fought against such unscrupulous attitude
“As the Eastern Regional Youth For Development president, we have a responsibility to challenge prejudice (of all kinds) when they shows their ugly faces, also we have the responsibility to support and protect minorities who are vulnerable to marginalization and exclusion.
“Sometimes this will be challenging particularly when it means that we have engage with sensitive issues such as religious norms and customs but we must persevere for the safe of freedom, peace and well-being for all society.”
