He told Accra-based Okay FM that the gay community in Ghana are increasingly becoming powerful, foreshadowing that people will begin to lose their jobs when they criticise same sex marriage.

“Let those who don't believe in the criminalization of gay begin the debate and let’s see if they can survive a week in their respective jobs.

He added: “Religion frowns on Alcoholism, fornication and other social vices and constantly preaches against the consumption of alcohol as well as the practice of fornication. Why don’t we do the same when the issue of gay is raised? If the society is anti-gay, the society must manifest it.”
