“We’re treading on the path of secular immorality meaning we have abandoned the righteousness of God and sought after human righteousness which will give us physical pleasure.

In fact, according to the various schools of Islamic thought, they have all accepted that the death penalty is the most deserving because the sin is so grave that such people don’t deserve to live,” he stressed.

The spokesperson of the Chief Imam believes if the president of Ghana come out clear with the position of Government about homosexuality with it advocacy and practice in Ghana it will help.

What is the position of government?”

“The government must come out . . . We want to hear from our President.
