Foh-Amoaning has the fiery anti-LGBTQ crusader has taken a swipe at President Akufo Addo’s cousin and Chief Advisor, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko and has challenged him to come clean on his suspected flirtation with promoters of Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersexuals (LGBTQI).
According to Foh-Amoaning, Mr. Otchere-Darko is deliberately spreading misinformation that only support the highly-frowned-upon LGBTQI agenda being pushed on Ghana by proponents of the Western-styled sexuality promotion.
“He has said his mind but we are not generating any hate. On the contrary, we are building a hospital to help them. You see that is the strategy of homosexuals and LGBT propagandists. I wish Gabby will be open and say it as it is…he doesn’t even believe in God and he believes in homosexuals. He shouldn’t hide behind his words. He and some of his friends believe in it and I don’t want him to run away from it. Let’s confront it and debate it”.
The outing of Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko as a possible LGBTQI promoter was triggered by a Twitter post he made on February 23, 2021, where he claimed Ghanaians are directing hate towards homosexuals.
“You don’t have to be pro-gay to appreciate their situation. You only have to be human. Let us be careful and not generate an intense hate campaign against homosexuals. You can speak for the law and ‘culture’ minus hate. Hate sucks,” Gabby wrote.
But quickly, Elikem E. Kotoko, a communications executive of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), responded to the post, saying there are reports that Mr. Otchere-Darko is a bisexual, hence his subliminal attempt to wade into the fierce LGBTQI debate in Ghana.
Elikem is suggesting that the reports he is privy to means the outspoken cousin of the president was bisexual who has a male sex partner as well as an official wife.
“Rumours have it that you are bisexual yourself, it is the reason you are on this subtle pro-homosexual agenda. Pls our culture frowns on it and it has nothing to do with humans left or right. If your dada had slept with another man, tell me where you would have been,” Mr. Kotoko jabbed.
Ghana has been gripped with an intense debate about a sudden rise in LGBTQ advocacy for legalisation following pressure from the new American President, Joe Biden, who is threatening to tie aid to countries’ legalisation of LGBTQ and same-sex marriage.
Not long after this LGBTQ diplomacy from Biden, the Australian Ambassador to Ghana, Andrew Barnes and some diplomats inaugurated an LGBTQ headquarters in Accra, despite such advocacy being regarded as criminal in Ghana.
Subsequently, the European Union pledged to support activities of the LGBTQI community in Ghana in blatant disregard for Ghanaian laws, sparking anger from the general public who have a strong aversion for the institutionalisation of LGBTQI in Ghana.
Critics have noted that the LGBTQI lobbyists have created a false narrative that homosexuals were under attack in Ghana, yet the Ghanaian society, like most African traditional societies have lived with homosexuals for thousands of years without much drama.
There have been some isolated cases where homosexuals have been assaulted in Ghana, but many of the incidents were either borne out of unsolicited sexual advances or criminal mob action by citizens who perceived a group of people to have been engaging in homosexual activities.
Whatsup News has gathered that Ghanaians are not necessarily against homosexuality, but are against its institutionalisation such that it will allow homosexuals to openly marry.
Others also fear that institutionalising LGBTQI means setting the country up for institutionalising more abhorrent sexual predatory behaviours such as paedophilia, bestiality and incest.
Already, religious organisations and traditional authorities have issued strong warnings at the Akufo Addo administration not to give in to Western Pressure on LGBTQI.
Today, security officials shut down a building in Kwabenya-a suburb of Accra, believed to be the LGBTQI headquarters that the Australian Ambassador to Ghana, Andrews Barns and some officials recently inaugurated.
