Kojo Oppong Nkrumah’s View On LGBT Wows Ghanaians


A news item sighted on adomonline.com by Fillabase.com has it that Information Minister-designate, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has revealed that Government has no intention to change Ghana’s position on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Rights.

His comment follows incessant calls on the government to state its position on homosexuality after the opening of an LGBTQI Rights Office in Ghana.

This has generated controversy with many claiming the group had the blessing of the government to operate in Ghana.

In response, Mr. Oppong Nkrumah, on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen program on Monday, described as false such an assertion.

“President Akufo-Addo will not seek any authority to change Ghana’s position on LGBTQI” he stressed.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah could, however, not confirm the government’s directive for the closure of the LGBTQI office in Accra.

“I’m yet to get a briefing on that from the government since I have been in court all day,” he replied when asked by show host Philip Osei Bonsu.
