Anti-gay campaigner and senior law lecturer at the Ghana School of Law, Moses Foh-Amoaning is preparing to petition Otumfuo Osei Tutu II over comments by  British Prime Minister, Theresa May over same-sex marriage.

According to him, Britain's proposal to support any Commonwealth nation including Ghana to legalise homosexuality is "ignorant".

He said "She shows lots of ignorance, I don’t think she understands what she said. She still has the colonial mentality, thinking that, only the laws of her country are the best."

"We want to come to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II the Asantehene to plead and tell him the whites are insulting us even after our forefathers fought for our independence. The whites still do not respect our culture. We will beg Nana to speak on our behalf," he said on Kumasi-based Angel FM.

Theresa May, while addressing the Commonwealth heads of government meeting in London said her government is ready to support any Commonwealth country that wants to rewrite their laws to accommodate gays.

The Prime Minister drew cheers and applause when she told delegates that "nobody should face discrimination or persecution because of who they are or who they love".

But Moses Foh-Amoaning who is a member of the National Collation for Proper Human Sexual Right and Family Values charged Men of God in the country to speak against homosexuality and stop predicting election results.

He added: "We shall scold them for being quiet because they fear they will lose money from their churches in the foreign country. Those pastors should speak, they should speak for Ghanaians."
