Some Minority MPs in Scotland's Parliament on Thursday, called on their government to confront President Mahama on Ghana's alleged homosexuality rights.
Registering their displeasure with Ghana's position on gay rights, some MPs especially Labour members of the Scottish Parliament, reportedly sat on their hands when President Mahama was introduced in the chamber, whiles others stormed out of the House in anger upon arrival of Ghana's President.
They argued the presence of Mr. Mahama was an affront to the gay community in their country since they respect and recognise their rights.
Speaking on 's Kokrokoo, Fred Agbenyo supported the President's refusal to confront gay issues at Scotland stressing that homosexuality is not part of the Ghanaian culture.
He sent a strong message to the Scottish people to note, unlike them; that Ghana will not be coerced into promoting homosexual acts.
He therefore described the behaviour of the minority members in the Scottish August House as "unacceptable and disgraceful."
“The conduct and the attitude of the Minority members of Parliament, I think, is very [very] unacceptable. It’s so disgraceful. I’m very excited that it didn’t frighten President Mahama. It didn’t influence him to say something or accept it. The laws of Ghana; it’s not about what the President Mahama thinks or does not think. It’s about what our law says. So, it’s not really about him. If you demonstrate against him, you’ve done nothing, he stated emphatically.
Meanwhile, respected legal practitioner, Ace Anan Ankomah, who described the Scottish MPs as "dummies", called their action; "crass, low and cheap".
