Akufo-Addo allays fears of international community over anti-LGBT+ Bill

In the wake of growing concerns from the diplomatic community and international organizations regarding Ghana's Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill, also known as the anti-LGBT+ Bill, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has sought to allay fears while reaffirming Ghana's commitment to human rights.
