The Queenmother of Atimpoku in the Akwamu Traditional area, Nana Abrewa Kwabiaa IV has called for the legalization of homosexuality in Ghana.

Nana Abrewa Kwabiaa IV said the legalization of same sex marriage will help reduce high birth rate in the country and help in the even distribution of national resources.

Nana Abrewa Kwabiaa IV said this at the launch of the book, ‘The History of Akwamu’.

“When gay marriage is legalized in Ghana, I would be happy because the population of this world is increasing by the day and that would help check that because a marriage between a man and a man would not produce children and same applies to that between a woman and woman…,” she said.

The US Supreme Court last week accepted for the legalization of gay marriage in all the 50 states in the union and the court has come under severe criticism for legalization the act.

But the Queenmother thinks it would be in the interest of Ghana to legalise it.

Her view was subsequently opposed by the Adontenhene for Senchi, Nana Oduro Dapaa who openly condemned her.

Nana Abrewa Kwabiaa IV has since backtracked from her earlier claims.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson of the Association of Queen mothers, Nana Akyeabea, who is also the Queen mother of Akuapem Akropong says Nana Abrewa Kwabiaa will be invited by the executives of the association to answer question about her infamous statement.
