Outspoken political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Gyampo has described homosexuality as animalistic.
He made the comment in a Facebook post amidst the revived and raging public depart over LGBTQI rights in Ghana.
For the past week, there has been a heated debate on whether Ghana should legalize same sex marriage, especially after activists secured an office space to address challenges facing lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, queers and intersex (LGBTQI) persons.
This has been condemned by many who believe its against Ghana’s culture, traditions and laws.
However, some have also argued that it is high time the country accepted homosexuals for who they are because they have rights like every Ghanaian does.
But reacting to this, Prof. Gyampo who lectures at the University of Ghana indicated that the act is animalistic and should not be encouraged in Ghana.
To him, even God will not fight for homosexuality to be encouraged in Ghana and that the people of Ghana will fight with all their might to ensure that the disgusting act is not encouraged.
He wrote: “Hahahaha…..Ah but who will support excuse me to say “trumu trumu? – Any attempt to make it fester would be crushed by ordinary people. We won’t even allow God to fight this. It is simply animalistic and no one will support it.”
Meanwhile, personnel from the police and national security have today shut down the recently opened office of the LGBTQI Rights group in Ghana.
The shutdown was reportedly on the orders of the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
