A post that has surfaced online purported to be the words of defender and advocate for gay rights in Ghana, former Citi FM journalist and lawyer Richard Dela Sky, has surprised many.

In a tweet (screenshot) by X user (formerly Twitter) @receipts guy, it shows an alleged post by the now defender of gay rights cursing homosexuals and expressing his distaste towards them after a gay person reached out to him to help advocate and defend gay rights in Ghana.

The tweet reads,: “Have (sic) just received a shocking email from a self-confessed homosexual based in Accra. Folks, can you imagine the YOUNGMAN is asking me to help him lead what he calls ” a sustained media campaign to pressurise Ghanaian authorities to recognise GAY RIGHTS in all forms?”MASSA, I BEG YOU IN GOD’S NAME; PLEASE TRY ELSEWHEREINFACT if there’s anything I abhor most in this world, it is HOMOS>GOD PUNISH YOU!!!”

In a turn of events, the journalist who openly cursed the self acclaimed homosexual is now the defender of the promotion and protection of gay rights in Ghana.

He has lodged an appeal with the Supreme Court, alleging that there were an insufficient number of Members of Parliament present in the chamber during the voting process.

Under parliamentary regulations, for a bill to proceed to the president for approval, at least half of Ghana’s 275 MPs must be in attendance and participate in the voting procedure.

The precise number of MPs who participated in the vote last Wednesday has not been disclosed by the Ghanaian media.

The bill, widely criticised by both the UK and the US, along with various rights groups labelling it as regressive, has sparked significant condemnation.

Previously, President Akufo-Addo had indicated his willingness to sign the bill if it reflected the desires of the majority of Ghanaians.

However, he is now aiming to reassure the diplomatic community of Ghana’s steadfast commitment to upholding human rights principles.

He acknowledged that the bill had “raised considerable anxieties in certain quarters of the diplomatic community and amongst some friends of Ghana” that the country may be “turning her back on her, hitherto, enviable, longstanding record on human rights observance and attachment to the rule of law.”

“I want to assure you that no such back-sliding will be contemplated or occasioned,” he added.
