President John Mahama?s position on homosexuality has been clarified by Minister for Information, Mahama Ayariga who has stated that the act is criminal and punishable under the laws of Ghana.

?The President is to execute the laws of Ghana. And the laws of Ghana are very clear on homosexuality the laws of Ghana appall and criminalize homosexuality; there is no dispute about that. Homosexual conduct which is unnatural carnal knowledge of one person or another is criminal and punishable by the laws of Ghana,? he told the media today.

Mr. Ayariga also set the records straight on the President?s relationship with international gay activist, Andrew Solomon.

The gay activist reportedly raised funds for his 2012 campaign after paying 20,000 dollars for a copy of the president?s book launched in the US last year.

Address a press conference today, Information Minister Mahama Ayariga said ?The organizers settled on Andrew Solomon purely, purely on the basis of his acumen in writing journalism and authorship. And for that reason the organizers thought that somebody like that would be the appropriate person to moderate that particular book launch in New York. He wasn?t chosen by the president, the president didn?t know him before the launch, so the president really did not have a relationship with him.?
