Former Minister of Sports, Nii Lante Vandepuye has alleged there are homosexuals at the Flagstaff House.
Though he did not mention names, he vowed on JoyNews’ AM Show Tuesday to expose them if pushed to the wall
The former Sports Minister made the comment while reacting to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo statement that Ghana’s status of gays in the country could change if there is a groundswell of pressure for that to be done
In an interview with Al Jazeera Jane Dutton on Talk, he indicated that, legalization of homosexuality is not on his government’s agenda.
“At the moment, I don’t feel, I don’t see that in Ghana there is that strong current of opinion that is saying this is something we need to deal with. It is not so far a matter that is on the agenda,” President Akufo-Addo said.
Pressure groups, religious organizations and political opponents have taken issues with the president over his comments.
This triggered a response from government through Minister of Information; Mustapha Hamid who stressed that government says it has no intention to legalize same-sex relationship.
He told Joy News Monday homosexuality continues to be unacceptable because there is no “cultural orientation” that supports it in Ghana.
But Nii Lante Vandepuye who is also the Member of Parliament for Odododiodoo constituency said he is not surprised about President Akufo-Addo’s position on homosexuality.
This, he explained is because there are people at his backyard engaging in the abominable act.
Nii Lante Vandepuye said he has no apologies for indicting the Flagstaff House because he has his prove.
