The Gay Traditional Council of Ghana has said they will resist any attempt to legalise homosexuality in the country since it will not favour its members because they are not yet ready.

The group's reaction 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.

"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.

But spokesperson for the group, Philcollins Agbedanu-Kröger, said: "I’m speaking on behalf of the Gay Traditional Council in Ghana. They said I should give you this word: that they themselves are not ready for anything, anything that is going to come [off], they are not ready for it. But you should be prepared, if they are ready they are going to tell you that they are ready.

"When they are ready you cannot stop them, when they are ready they are going to march, maybe in 50 years to come, in 100 years to come, they want to tell you that this is not the time, maybe the coming generation. So anybody that will get this, try to give it around, send it to them, let them listen so that they sleep, they can relax, they can have a peace of mind."
