National Chairman of the governing NPP, Freddie Blay has heavily descended on advocates fighting against the activities of the LGBTQ Community in Ghana.
Mr. Freddie Blay does not see any problem that the sexual choices of these gays and lesbians community pose to the entire country which should warrant what he describes as “persecution” on them.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Asaase Radio, the National Chairman of the NPP opined that the sexual preferences and orientation of people should be their own problem and not the entire country.
According to the former legislator, the fight against the LGBTQ Community by a section of Ghanaians is shrouded by too much hypocrisy. He explains that these persons persecuting gays and lesbians have been overtaken by their emotions hence failing to see the bigger the picture.
He therefore stressed that he does not see anything wrong being a gay or a lesbian hence the country must allow them to enjoy their sexual preferences.
“If people want to be gays, it should be their own problem. I won’t go ahead to be a persecutor of those who want to be together as man and man or woman and woman. I think there’s too much hypocrisy about it. Emotions have been excited over it to the extent that we are not sober over it. I honestly do not see the hullabaloo about it. We should allow them if they want to,” Mr. Freddie Blay contended.
He was however quick to add that he does not subscribe to homosexuality as sexual preference.
“I don’t subscribe to gayism as a choice because I’m not attracted by that, but I don’t want to go into people’s bedrooms. I don’t want to see what they are doing,” the National Chairma of the ruling NPP said.
