Mr Fuseini, a former Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, said the President will be willing to support forces who will bring about changes to Ghana’s current laws on homosexuality.

Senior lawyers in Ghana have argued that Ghana’s laws does not allow homosexuality and the country is ranked among the top 10 anti-gay countries in the world.

Speaking on Joy FM’s “Newsfile” Saturday, he said: “He [President Akufo-Addo] is amenable to that [homosexuality].”

According to him, the President, who made the comments in an interview with Aljazeera, ‘miscommunicated.’

“He spoke rightly as a lawyer but wrongly as a politician,” he stressed.

“Because he imported words to mean well it can happen…. People are now holding him to words like it can happen,” he added.

President Nana Akufo-Addo told Aljazeera that legalisation of homosexuality is bound to happen in Ghana if public opinion for its legalisation grows stronger.

“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."

“I think it is something that is bound to happen like elsewhere in the world, they are activities of individuals of groups”, he said.
