Kofi Osei Arkwa who is the National Youth Organizer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) has hit against the actions of the Australian High Commissioner ,Gregory Andrews for supporting and promoting LGBTQ in Ghana
Mr Arkwa wants the Australian High Commissioner in Ghana to be shut down immediately as the government accelerates actions to repatriate the Commissioner for supporting and promoting LGBTQ +, which Ghana’s culture and religion disapprove of.
Speaking in an interview on Onua FM on Friday, February 26, the CPP’s Youth Organizer described the measures taken by the government so far against LGBTQ + practices as reluctant and indolent.
He is furious that the Australian High Commissioner attended the LGBTQ + function to support the act and the fact that the government is indifferent in sanctioning him.
He has demanded that the Minister Designate for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, officially write to the Australian government to expel H.E. Gregory Andrews for his actions in support of LGBTQ +.
He reiterated that LGBTQ + is not part of Ghana’s social norms and that no foreign individual or entity should be allowed to promote it in the country.
Furthermore, he said that it is not part of the bilateral agreement between Ghana and Australia.
He also explained that the High Commissioner is here in Ghana to advance Australia’s political and economic interests and to work with the government on issues of common concern, including development, trade, investment, peace and security.
But he believes that the Australian High Commissioner has overstepped and deviated from the bilateral relationship between Ghana and the country he represents and therefore does not deserve to continue his stay in the country.
Arkwa chided the designated foreign minister for failing to expel the foreign missionary a day after he endorsed LGBTQ +, and described the minister’s work on foreign missions as negligent.
