“I must tell you that homosexuals are targeting just thirty-five seats in Parliament. Currently, they have nine members who are just advocates for gay rights but are not involved in the act. However, there are three people who are involved in the act which includes one woman and two men.”
Captain Smart said the homosexual community does not bother themselves with who becomes President but rather is focusing on having the numbers in Parliament to push their agenda.
There have been debates on various social media platforms on whether homosexuality should be legalized in Ghana.
The revelation came amidst the raging controversy over the opening of an office in Accra, Ghanaian capital by members of the Lesbians Gays Bisexuals Transgender Queer and Intersexed community (LGBTQI) which has been immediate shut by the police allegedly on the order of Ghana president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
