Listen Now

Ignatius Annor, the France-based Ghanaian journalist (Metro TV Presenter) who recently opened up about his gay status, has taken a swipe at President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on the latter’s recent comments on the subject of LGBTQ+ and same-sex marriage in Ghana.

At a church service for the Installation and Enthronement of Rt. Rev Dr. Cyril Kobina Ben-Smith as the 2nd Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Ghana, at Asante-Mampong, in the Ashanti Region, on Saturday, February 27, 2021, President Akufo-Addo stated emphatically that same-sex marriage will not happen under his watch.

But, reacting to the president’s comment in a Facebook post, the EuroNews journalist stated how stupefied he was at watching the video and the president make such a stance yet again.

“As I pen this down, it is unclear if the Ghanaian president condemned the violent reactions/treatment being meted out to people like myself for just being who we are and will be. Mind you we hurt absolutely no one for simply loving,” he wrote.

He went on to describe how disappointed he was in the president’s stance, stating that such comments are clearly “against our fundamental human rights as beings.”

Earlier in the post, Ignatius Annor had stated that he continues to receive threats on his life for having come out to announce his sexual preference for men, adding that he knew it was time to speak up after “I denied my sexuality for years.”
