Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II, Dormaahene has expressed his outright rejection of same-sex relations and has called on the government and all politicians to do the same on LGBTQ+.
He stressed in a viral video of him addressing a social gathering that he will defy the non-political involvement of chiefs to campaign against any politician who speaks in support of the LGBTQ+ movement.
In his address, he used American Vice President Kamala Harris’ marriage as a good reason Ghanaians reject same-sex relationships.
He said it was instructive that the US VP arrived in Ghana last month for her three-day visit with her husband who happens to be a man even though she believes same-sex marriages are issues of human rights.
“She, herself, when she was coming to Ghana, did she not bring her husband? Why didn’t she bring a woman she is married to but rather a husband? Isn’t it because she knows what is right?
“There are lots of beautiful girls in Ghana, who will marry them? There are now men who marry and don’t have affairs with their wives, they have gay partners … We want to make it clear to the West that the laws in place by Uganda and other governments, we are fully in support,” he said to applause.
