Homosexuality We are not ready for men to be wearing pampers – Evang. Lawrence Tetteh

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has disclosed that although legalizing homosexuality is currently not of significance to Ghanaians, there is a likelihood that it would happen in the near future.

  • Published:

Renowned International Evangelist and President of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach, Rev. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh has rejected the idea of legalizing homosexuality  in the country.

According to him, legalising homosexuality will bring tragedy in Ghana.

His comment comes at the back of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who disclosed that although legalizing homosexuality is currently not of significance to Ghanaians, there is a likelihood that it would happen in the near future.

"I think it is something that is bound to happen like elsewhere in the world," he said.

"This is the socio-cultural issue if you like…I don’t believe that in Ghana, so far, a sufficiently strong coalition has emerged which is having that impact on public opinion that will say: 'Change it [the law], let’s then have a new paradigm in Ghana,” he said in an interview with Aljazeera.

The issue of legalizing homosexuality gained massive public interest when late President John Evans Atta Mills strongly opposed to legalize it, after the UK threatened to reconsider aids given to countries that are against homosexuality. Reports indicated that Britain put on hold £19 million in aid to Malawi because of concerns including its treatment of gays as most Africans frown at the thought of legalizing the act as it defies every aspect of their socio-cultural and religious principles.

Dr. Lawrence Tetteh speaking on the development in an interview on Accra-based Starr FM said "I know the tragedy, the pain and the frustration that people are going through in the UK [where the act has been legalised]. Men are wearing pampers and I am a pastor and I pray for some of them."

"Men are wearing panty liners [and] pad because they have anal cancer. Ghana, we are not ready…for that," he added.
