Nana Oye LithurGreater Accra Regional Youth Leader of the Progressive People?s Party (PPP,) Mr. Isaac Oteng, has called on Ghanaians and religious leaders to ensure that Nana Oye Lithur is removed from the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection.

According to him, Nana Oye Lithur would use her ministry to promote homosexuality in the country.

He added that in the first palce her [Oye Lithur?s] nomination by President Dramani Mahama was a ?disgrace to many Ghanaians who have known her to be a staunch defender of homosexuals in the country.

?There are a whole lot of mysteries surrounding Nana Oye Lithur?s position on homosexuality,? he said.

The PPP youth leader said homosexuality in Ghana is illegal, ?but Nana Oye Lithur on her vetting day stressed that she will protect and defend homosexuals in the country because they have rights.

Mr. Oteng insisted that any illegal activity is criminal in the country?s constitution and therefore called on the Nana Oye Lithur to retract her position on homosexuality.

He added that Ghana would not be wrong in not promoting the rights of people?s whose activities contravene the norms and values of the society.

He said it a shame on the part of Nana Oye Lithur to affirm that she will defend and protect homosexuals in the country.

?Nana Oye Lithur?s statement that she will defend homosexuals and not promote homosexuality is conflicting.?

Mr. Oteng maintained that defending and protecting gays and lesbians is another form of promoting homsexuality.

?Ghana customary laws and usage that are against homosexuality are well captured and entrenched in the constitution and that same constitution will not defend such practices.?
