As part of efforts to ease the minds of Ghanaians regarding the risks of the vaccine, President Akufo-Addo will be taking his Coronavirus vaccine jab on live television.

This revelation was made on Saturday morning by former Deputy Health Minister Bernard Okoe-Boye on Citi TV’s The Big Problem.

This has become important, he said, to ensure that Ghanaians are made aware that AstraZeneca vaccines recently received by the nation are safe to use.

Captain Smart Slaps A Popular G.a.y Journalist In A Live Interview

Published

on

A few days ago, Ignatius Annor, a former Metro TV journalist, publicly proclaimed himself to be gay, and he has since embarked on a movement to encourage the acceptance of LGBTQI rights in Ghana.

As the Euronews journalist decided to boycott an interview with Angel FM’s Captain Smart in the middle, his recent media experience did not go too well.

Throughout the interview that lasted a little less than 25 minutes, with each single question asked by the interviewer, the dispute between the two journalists regarding LGBTQI+ promotion became apparent.

On the one side, Ignatius tried to clarify to Captain Smart why it is important for Ghanaians to embrace and tolerate gay people and their activities.

He argued that not all people are heteros*xual, and that certain people are born homos*xual, necessitating the need for a culture that recognizes such people.

He also pointed out to Captain Smart that by claiming that people calling for gay rights acceptance in Ghana were seeking to dilute the country’s cultural set-up, he had taken a worrying stance on the matter.

I don’t know, but if a man says that I have love for another fellow man, or that I have love for another fellow woman, what is the crime here? Here, what is the crime? He was perplexed.

He also pointed out to Captain Smart that by claiming that people calling for gay rights acceptance in Ghana were seeking to dilute the country’s cultural set-up, he had taken a worrying stance on the matter.

 

“One of the problematic problems for the LGBTQI+ community is your status as a journalist, and your line of questioning isn’t helping matters. That isn’t going to support us,” he said.

Captain Smart then asked the journalist if he identifies as a female or a male, to which Annor replied that he was male.

In his relationship, he further attempted to find out the s*xual role of his interviewee.

I consider your question to be really rude, and I am not going to answer your question. I find your question dehumanizing and insulting because, as a straight man, I did not ask you that question. So that’s not what you should ask me, and it’s very unfortunate. You don’t have the right to ask that question as a human being,” Annor said.

Captain Smart then inquired whether Annor identifies as a female or a male, to which Annor replied that he is a male.

In his relationship, he also tried to figure out what his interviewee’s s*xual position was.

I think your question is very rude, and I will not answer your question. I find your question dehumanizing and disrespectful because I did not ask you that question as a straight man. So that’s not the question you should be asking me, which is unfortunate. As a human being, you do not have the right to ask that question,” Annor said.

Broadcaster Bridget Otoo has boldly claimed that if it takes her to hell to encourage the legalization of LGBTQ in Ghana, then she is ready to dine with Satan.

Like other Ghanaian celebrities, Bridget has a voice in support of creating an organization that will guarantee the protection of the country’s LGBTQ communities.

Celebrities such as Ignatius Annor, Wanluv Kuborlor, Sisiter Derby and more have spoken out against those advocating for LGBTQ offices to be arrested or closed down.

On her twitter page, Bridget Otoo said she was prepared to face something like Satan and hell if her support for the oppressed group would take her to that position.

I’m advised that endorsing #LGBTQI is the fastest and quickest way to make it to hell to sign me up, I’d like to meet Satan!’ she tweeted.
