|Gender Minister, Nana Oye|
Members of the Concerned Citizens Association of Tamale (CCAT) have launched full scale attack on the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Nana Oye Lithur for keeping long silence on the infamous Tamale sex scandal involving about 50 young ladies.
The group is demanding the Gender Minister to launch full scale investigations into the matter and also find ways of blocking the pornographic photos and videos of the young ladies that are in high circulation across Ghana and beyond.
The President of the CCAT, Basharu Alhassan Daballi in an interview with a section of the media in Tamale described it as “unusual of the Minister of Gender to keep quite on serious issues that clearly violate the rights, freedom and dignity of women” in Ghana.
“We are unhappy about Nana Oye Lithur’s silence on the issue which involves about 50 young ladies in a sex scandal. In fact this is unusual of her. “We are calling on her to at least to institute an investigation into this particular act and if they can block further pictures from been posted on the social media it will be good for us as a people and also protect the image of Ghana.”
Mr. Basharu Alhassan Daballi bemoaned that most of the victims in the act were women who are married with children and could be gravely affected. “A lot of people will be affected especially women who are married now: some are married women and some are yet to marry but when they did this they were not married, this is the social angle we are coming from.”
Parents of the victims have pleaded with the media and other individuals to seize fire in their bid to circulate the pictures. Several religious and traditional leaders in Tamale have also condemned the act.
