While the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akuffo-Addo, publicly reaffirmed his position never to legalise this practice of homosexuality in his country. Former Ghanaian international footballer Michael Essien, meanwhile, supports them.
This is the news of the moment in Ghana. The President of the Republic of Ghana, in a statement, insisted that he will never accept the marriage of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in his country. “ I have said it before, let me, in conclusion, to stress again that same-sex marriage will never take place under my tenure; same-sex marriage will not be legalised in Ghana during my tenure. I repeat, this will never happen under my tenure, ”he said.
A statement that seems not to please everyone. Indeed, the country’s sports personality, not the least, Michael Essien, a former player of the Black Stars and Chelsea, has affirmed his support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. It was through his Instagram account that the 38-year-old midfielder supported homosexuals. “We see you, we hear you, we support you. Our Ghana LGBTQIA community, ”he wrote.
A reaction which, of course, aroused the anger of Internet users. Much atomised by the insults about his position, Michael Essien felt compelled to delete his post from Instagram.
