Akufo-Addo never met homosexuals in UK - Boakye Agyarko
The campaign manager of the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Boakye Agyarko, has rubbished claims that Nana Akufo-Addo met gays and lesbians while in the UK describing the NDC's allegation as 'pitiful fabrication'.
The central regional communications director of the ruling NDC, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, on Tuesday alleged that the opposition flagbearer sought the sympathies of the gay community in the UK and promised to protect their rights if he becomes Ghana's president.
However, speaking on the issue on Citi FM's Eyewitness News on Tuesday, Mr. Agyarko said that statement is a figment of Allotey Jacobs' imagination.
'Absolutely not, he did not meet with gay groups, he met a large Ghanaian community in a hall and walked them through his discussions with David Cameron in a short meeting,' Agyarko insisted.
'But for people to say that he met a gay lobbyist, I think that it is a pitiful fabrication and a figment of their own imagination,' he added.
Mr. Agyarko also stated that no other political party or group of persons have the right to demand any evidence from the NPP flagbearer stating that it is diplomatically incorrect for a meeting between two leaders to be brought into the public domain.
He concluded that Ghanaians are eager to return the NPP to power due to the difficult economic conditions that the Atta Mills-led administration had plunged the country into.
