We’ll Not Accept Any Aid On The Condition Of Legalizing LGBT+ – Ken Ofori Atta
Ken Ofori Atta the Finance Minister-designate, has noted during his vetting today that the Akufo-Addo led government will not accept any financial aid from other countries on the condition of legalizing LGBT+ activities in the country.
Responding to questions during his vetting on Thursday, Mr Ofori-Atta said under no circumstance will Ghana accept aid with conditionality that will affect the Ghanaian culture.
“First of all I’m not clear that it is being established as a conditionality…truly, for example, if you look at the decision the President took with regard to the termination of the PDS [deal] in which $190 million, therefore, had to be left on the table.
Adding that;“I think our sociology and our traditions are the most important enduring legacy that we have and, so, we will make decisions that suit our Ghanaian purpose so that we can develop in the way we want to develop,” he told the Committee.
