This is sad. I see the presidents action as an action of cowardness. I am not a gay , But He is irresponsible person. If he is not siting on their human right , then why doesnt he come out and legalize it ? What a joke of a president.

I am fighting for the rights of Gay , Lesbians , Transe, communities in Africa and many parts of the world as the UN Secretary general said and the Ghana Government is doing nothing about it. I am going on a tour from next month to meet gay groups to fight for this course. People should change their mentality in Africa , and some part of the World and know that peoples human rights should be given to them. I am not a gay , but I think Gays should be allowed to live freely and come out of their panic shells. I feel so disgusted and embarrased that the Ghana government is still living in colonialism. Give them their rights they are all humans like Us. The Ghana Government should bow down his head in shame and be responsible. Even with the plea of the UN Secretary General , he is still acting like a coward. An irresponsible president brings discriminations in his land and tries to sit on peoples happiness and human rights. Before My tour
I am one of the National team players based permanently in Europe. This is a shame to Gays , lesbians and transes .I am stoping profesional fotboll for a Year and then fight for this course. I will be comoming traveling in March and will be hapy meet your communities. Contact me on My mail.
