Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has disclosed how President Akufo-Addo rejected a 2 billion dollars offer from the LGBTQI community in 2017 though the country was in need of money to clear some debts.
According to Kwame Baffoe, after the NPP came into power, Ghana owed Nigeria some money for gas supply which was not paid during the Mahama government. The debt was to the tune of $180 million.
The LGBT community approached the Presidency to propose an offer of two billion dollars to settle it debts in exchange of Legalizing their activities.
But the President knowing well the country he’s governing and his belief in the systems and traditions of Ghana refused the offer.
“Ghana needed $180 million to pay for gas supply for our electricity because although Ghanaians were paying for electricity, Mahama decided not to pay so Buhari cut the supply of Gas to Ghana because of this. The LGBTQI Community came in and said they can give the country $2 billion but their condition for the loan was to legalize homosexuality but the President of Ghana rejected it because he knew the health implications,” he said on Wontumi TV in Kumasi.
The conversation surrounding homosexuality has came to the center stage after the community secured an office to address their issues.
The Preisdent has reiterated that he will not accept same-sex marriage in Ghana.
