Controversial Radio and TV Presenter, Captain Smart has made some wild allegations against the incumbent President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo.

Speaking during his morning show, Captain Smart alleged that, Nana Addo is a Gay activist and it’s the reason he doesn’t want to sign the Anti-Gay Bill presented by Parliament.

A few weeks ago, the Parliament passed the Anti-Gay Bill waiting for the President’s endorsement.

The bill proscribes LGBTQ activities and criminalizes its promotion, advocacy, and funding.

Persons caught in the act would be subjected to a 6 months to 3 year jail term with promoters and sponsors of the act bearing a 3 to 5 year jail term.

Ahead of the passage, sponsors of the Bill filed a motion for a further consideration stage of the bill.

The lead sponsor, Samuel Nartey George proposed that clauses 10 and 11 of the anti-LGBT which deals with editorial policies of media firms be subjected to article 12 of the 1992 constitution which provides for the freedom of the media.

The amendments were approved by the House as part of the bill.

The Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin on his part also filed a motion for clause 12 of the bill which deals with the funding of LGBT activities to be subjected to the constitution but that was negated by the House.

But instead of signing the Bill, the President released a press conference indicating why Ghanaians have to wait for his verdict.

Reacting to this, Captain Smart claimed that the reason Nana Addo hasn’t signed the Bill is because he is an advocate for the LGBTQ community.
