“Rape and violence against women are not something we should joke or toy with. We need to develop a more robust environment for protecting our wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers,” he tweeted.
His comment comes after the counsellor in an interview on a local TV station Wednesday, July 8, claimed that victims of rape at a point enjoy the act.
His comments have been greeted with lots of condemnation from celebrities such as Nana Aba Anamoah, Juliet Ibrahim, Lydia Forson and Sister Deborah, etc, with a petition to the Ministry of Communications and National Communications Authority to ban the counsellor from being empanelled on all television and radio stations gathering momentum on social media.
