The Christian Council of Ghana has challenged President John Mahama to openly state Ghana’s position on the controversial same sex marriage debate.
According to the Council, it is not enough for the President to continue to take refuge in the stands of the late President John Mills on the matter, when it cropped up some years back.
The call by the Christian Council comes weeks after the United States legitimized homosexual marriages, sparking debates across the world.
Speaking to Kafui Dey on the Morning Starr Monday, General Secretary of the Christian Council Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong said the President’s apparent silence on the matter is not helpful.
“Under Professor Mills, the parameters were very clear. And so you could travel outside, be in any meeting and when you are asked about the subject, you could quote him.
“Now we just want an affirmation from the seat of government that as a country, our policy direction on same sex marriage has not changed; then we will all be at peace. But if our leaders are quiet because of change of administration, then we are not sure if we are saying the same things,” he stated.
