Former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Constituency Chairman for Ayawaso West Wuogon in Accra, Michael Omare Wadie, has stated that Ghana’s law which prohibits same-sex relationships and same-sex marriage could be repealed if gay activists give Members of Parliament huge sums in financial compensation.

Mr Omare Wadie, who was speaking on Accra-based Kasapa FM, backed a call by the Christian Council of Ghana for President John Mahama to publicly state Ghana’s position on same sex marriage.

He said if same sex activists, whom he described as very influential and powerful, are able to raise $1 million for each of the 275 MPs, Ghana will be declared “ a gay state”.

Mr Omare Wadie said:  “I think it is important we get some official position on this issue from officialdom. If the leader speaks the followers obey and respects.

“Late President Mills made his position clear on the issue. All we are asking for is for President Mahama to do same; this is all we ask for."

“The other day I was having a chat with somebody… how many MPS do we have? 275 I believe so. Now if the gay people are able to convince the President and we take it to parliament, and these gays say they are giving each MP one million dollars for them to sign, I tell you they will come out to declare Ghana a gay state.

“And the gay community can easily raise this money.”

Under Ghanaian criminal law, same-sex sexual activity among males is illegal.

Chapter 6 of the Criminal Code, 1960, as amended by The Criminal Code (Amendment) Act, 2003, provides:

Section 104. Unnatural Carnal Knowledge.

(1) Whoever has unnatural carnal knowledge —

(a) of any person of the age of sixteen years or over without his consent shall be guilty of a first degree felony and shall be liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term of not less than five years and not more than twenty-five years; or

(b) of any person of sixteen years or over with his consent is guilty of a misdemeanour; or

(c) of any animal is guilty of a misdemeanour.

(2) Unnatural carnal knowledge is sexual intercourse with a person in an unnatural manner or with an animal.
