Former national chairman of the People’s National Convention Bernard Mornah has indicated that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s failure to act ‘boldly and decisively’ on the matter of same-sex relations is what has triggered the growth of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Intersex (LGBTQ+) activism in the country.

According to Mr.Mornah, when President Akufo-Addo was presented with a chance to take a firm posture against the issue, he offered a response that inspired the LGBTQ+ community.

The former national chairman of the People’s National Convention challenged the president to come out and speak against the actions of the LGBTQ+ group if he is not in bed with them.

“Why is President Akufo-Addo saying it is bound to happen?. He [Akufo-Addo is the set off for it [LGBTQI]. He’s the trigger for what’s happening. He should state clearly and state his position," he said.
