National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament(MP) for South Dayi in the Volta Region, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor has accused President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of blowing hot and cold regarding the LGBTQ+ discussions ongoing in the country.
According to him, President Akufo-Addo is not certain on his stance when it comes to the discussion on the activities of the LGBTQ+ community and their advocates in the country except to dance around it to stay safe.
Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show, Hon. Dafeamekpor noted that Nana Akufo-Addo since becoming the President of the Republic of Ghana has never been able to state his position, whether, for or against the activities of the LGBTQ+ in the country.
“The President has not been able to state his position for or against ever since he became President. He said it will never happen under his watch, but has he spoken against what is happening under his watch? He has been blowing hot and cold. When he meets a group that does not support homosexuality then he will say it will not happen under his watch,” he asserted.
He indicated that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) majority members who were initially part of the crusaders of the anti-LGBTQ+ Bill have been swayed away with the exception of Hon. Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, Assin South Constituency MP.
“Initially, we were about 15 MPs who were behind the anti-LGBTQ+ Bill, but now, we have been reduced to 8 MPs. All of them were asked to go away and not to sign the bill, but we don’t want to do politics with this,” he pontificated.
