Former Ghana Blackstars player who is now a coach for a division one side in Denmark, Michael Essien, has thrown his weight behind the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana after Akuffo Addo ordered for the movement’s office in Accra to be shut down.
In a new post that has been sighted on his IG page, the soccer star stressed that Ghana supports equality, hence the voice of the LGBT must also be heard.
We see you, we hear you, we support you. Our LGBTQIA plus Community in Ghana #ghanasupportequality 🇬🇭🤝🏿
Meanwhile, the sitting president, Nana Addo has emphatically stated that Ghana will not recognize LGBTQ+ rights under his tenure in the office of the presidency.
