Law lecturer at the Ghana School of Law, Moses Foh-Amoaning has challenged Minister-designate of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Nana Oye Lithur to publicly state her position on homosexuality.

He said homosexuality is gradually becoming a lifestyle that is gaining notoriety in the country hence for her [Oye Lithur] to say she will protect the rights of gays and lesbians will attract outright disapproval from Ghanaians.

Foh-Amoaning was reacting to the public criticisms of the human rights advocate on her liberal stance about homosexuality.

Nana Oye Lithur had a difficult time defending her liberal stance about homosexuality when she appeared before the Appointment Committee in Parliament.

The Minister-designate of Gender, Children and Social Protection managed to set the records straight on her position but it seem a lot more people including Members of Parliament on the committee were not convinced.

A number of pressure groups including the clergy have called for her rejection because they believe Nana Oye when given the nod she will use her position to promote homosexuality.

Also, Moses Foh-Amoaning on Asempa FM?s Ekosii Sen Thursday said Nana Oye Lithur?s views on homosexuality puts her in a very difficult position.

He indicated that there is a ?thin line? between protection and promotion of gay rights and thus for her to say she will protect the rights of gays and lesbians amount to a conflict of interest for the government she intends to work for.

The renowned lawyer found it intriguing that the position being espoused by Nana Oye Lithur has no correlation with that of the Foreign Minister, Hannah Tetteh and yet they might work in the same government.

He noted that if this flawed philosophy is tolerated, very soon other social misfits like armed robbers, rapists and criminals will argue that they also have rights which must be protected.

The law lecturer believes the solution to correct the genetic disorder is through spiritual and psychological help and not by protecting the fundamental human rights of gays and lesbians.

He added that through deliverance self confessed gays and lesbians can receive healing that will enable them live normal lives.

Foh-Amoaning said Oye Lithur owes it a duty to Ghanaians to make a categorical statement to the matter to rest.
