The EU office in Ghana has declared support for the group.
The Ghana Catholic Bishops conference (GCBC) which was not happy with the establishment of the alleged LGBTQI office consequently called on President Akufo-Addo to shut down office in Accra.
The Bishops who did not understand the President’s long silence on the issue urged him not to fall for external pressure to accept the practice of homosexuality in the country.
In a statement signed by GCBC president , Most Rev Philip Naameh,it said the group was however against physical attacks on LGBT people.
“We also call on the Government of Ghana to close down the LGBTQI office space that was recently opened in Accra,” the statement said.
Most Rev. Naameh, described the LGBTQI agenda as a “complete disorder of the fundamental law of God in creating man and woman.”
“The LGBTQI is a clear departure from God’s purpose of creation because the woman was not created to be an object of pleasure for man,” he said adding that the Catholic as a Church would only continue to recongnise marriages between a man and a woman to ensure that God’s purpose of creation materialized.
Christian Council of Ghana was also another faith based organisation which was not happy with the recently opened office of LGBTQI office in Accra.
The Christian Council in his statement urged Ghanaians to remain resolute in maintaining the culture and sanctity of the State as believers in God.
The Pentecostal Council of Ghana was also not left out showing their displeasure.
Rev. Johnny Apeakorang, who signed the the statement on behalf of the Council said it would continue to render its support to the Coalition against LGBTQI to ensure that its goal was achieved.
The National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values on its part expressed disapproval over the alleged LGBTQI office.
The Coalition said the alleged existence of the office was illegal and an affront to the laws, traditions and customs of the country and must be shut down.
The Executive Secretary of the Coalition, Moses Foh-Amoaning, at a press conference, said the act was disrespecting to Ghanaians and undermined the sovereignty of the State.
He explained that Ghana as a country had not signed any international laws permitting the promotion of the LGBTQI in the country therefore, any attempt by anyone to promote the activities of the group amounted to illegality.
Mr Foh-Amoaning noted that on the contrary, international laws such as the Economic, Cultural, Social and Political Rights of the United Nations treaty, which the country had ratified, protected the sovereignty of Ghana to defend its cultural values.
He accused the international community in Ghana for promoting an act which he said was alien to the customs and traditions of Ghanaians and infringed on the sovereignty of the state.
Mr Foh-Amoaning called on the Inspector General of Police and other security agencies to swiftly move in to close down the said office and also arrest and prosecute persons found to have breached the laws of the state.
He appealed to Parliament to quickly move and pass comprehensive legislation to deal effectively with the issue.
“We call on all state agencies including Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), the Ghana AIDS Commission, the police, politicians and the media to take all steps to protect our nation from the negative impact of this LGBTQI,” he said.
