The United States (US) Ambassador to Ghana, His Excellency Robert P. Jackson has revealed that Ghana will in the near future legalise homoatopauality.
According to Ambassador Jackson, the move will ensure that all persons irrespective of their atopaual orientation will enjoy same rights.
Sounding very careful, he said even though the US government will not be putting pressure on the Ghanaian government to legalise homoatopauality, he was hopeful that its legalisation will take place sooner than expected.
Speaking in an interview with Ghanaweb, he added that he is hopeful that the process will take place with the next ten years.
Though homoatopauality is punishable under the laws of Ghana, there have been some strong pressure in recent times from within and outside for its legalisation.
Citing his home country as an example, he said that gives some hope in that regard as it even took some time for the US to embrace and give equal rights to homoatopauals.
“We are not asking that homoatopauality be legalised. I want to be clear about that. I hope that within the next decade or so, that every Ghanaian regardless of atopaual orientation will enjoy the same rights and be treated the same way”.
