Akufo-Addo cannot sign anti-gay bill because he doesn’t have the holy spirit in him – Rev.Dr Samuel Mensah

A pastor at Full Gospel Church International, Rev. Dr. Samuel Mensah, has asserted that President Akufo-Addo’s reluctance to sign the Proper Human Rights Family Value Bill, commonly known as the anti-LGBTQ bill, indicates a lack of the Holy Spirit within him.

In a widely circulated video, the pastor emphasized the importance of having a leader filled with the Holy Spirit, arguing that such a leader would unequivocally support legislation against LGBTQ activities.

He challenged the notion that mere attendance at church services equates to true faith, urging individuals to demonstrate their beliefs through actions. Rev. Mensah also criticized the Akufo-Addo-led administration, alleging widespread corruption and moral decay within the government.

He called upon President Akufo-Addo to embody the principles of his faith and enact positive change in the country.

“If we have a holy spirit filled president, he will sign the LGBTQ into law. He can’t come and deceive us that I go to church, if you really go to church and you believe it, show it. If you claim you belong to one of the traditional  churches, show it.

“Let your faith speak for you. If the fish rots it rots from the head. Right from the Jubilee House and everywhere there’s rottenness yet they said they are christians. Take your faith to where you belong to and let your faith change the environment,” he said.

On Wednesday, February 28, 2024, Parliament approved the anti-LGBTQ bill, set to criminalize activities related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals, as well as their promotion, advocacy, and funding within Ghana.

President Akufo-Addo has clarified that the anti-LGBTQI bill has not yet reached his desk for approval. Despite concerns raised in diplomatic circles, he assured that Parliament’s bipartisan approval of the bill will not compromise Ghana’s human rights record.

Addressing anxieties surrounding any potential shift in Ghana’s stance on human rights and the rule of law, President Akufo-Addo emphasized his commitment to upholding these principles.

While refraining from discussing the bill’s origin or its pending status, he acknowledged a constitutional challenge filed at the Supreme Court regarding the proposed legislation. The President urged patience, suggesting that everyone await the court’s decision before taking any further action.
