The Minister of Communications, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah, has debunked speculations circulating in the media that President John Dramani Mahama was jabbed over gay rights by the Scottish Parliament.
Speaking on OKAY FM, Friday morning, Dr. Omane Boamah explained that, Ghanaians have their own unique culture and no one can impose another man’s culture on them.
According to the minister, he is of the view that some people contracted the BBC’s journalist to ask those questions to undermine the integrity of President Mahama.
“If a BBC journalist had gone for his contract to undermine the president’s integrity, then I am pleading with Ghanaians to debunk the media speculations.”
He also added that the president went to the Scottish Parliament because the Scottish first minister who will be addressing the Scottish Parliament invited the President to be at her address.
President John Dramani Mahama according to Dr. Omane Baoamah will be honoured with a doctorate degree at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland.
Among the President’s delegation are the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin; Minister for Education, Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang; and Foreign Affairs Minister, Hannah Tetteh.
He further added that the President also met the Ghanaian community numbering about 300 people and had an interaction with them.
Additionally, Mr. Omane Boamah, indicated that the President’s visit to Scotland will strengthen the bilateral relations between the two countries.
Buttressing his point, he said Scotland is not only well advanced in the oil and gas sector but trade and education as well.
He stated that though Ghana started commercializing oil not long ago, he believes that this visit will enhance trade relations between the two countries.
He again added that the number of Ghanaian students in Scotland will be numbering about 100 and all those students after their education will return to Ghana to impact their knowledge into the society. Therefore, when it comes to education, Ghanaians have benefitted immensely from the Scottish.
In his final submission, the minister of Communications said that, “it is essential to woo investors to invest in the economy of Ghana, in order create jobs for the masses.”
