Information gathered by our outfits indicate that the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has boldly indicated that another law to condemn LGBTQ+ exercises in Ghana will be passed before the finish of 2021.
His remarks follow the introduction of a Bill to him by a gathering of MPs, including Ningo Prampram MP, Sam George, and some strict associations. The Private Member’s Bill looks to build up a system for the restriction of all LGBTQ exercises.
Tending to the gathering, Alban Bagbin said the practice, which is unequivocally despised by Ghanaians, won’t be permitted to flourish in the country. The discussion over the sanctioning of LGBTQI rights in Ghana was restored recently after police attacked and shut down the workplaces of some LGBTQI campaigners at Ashongman in Accra.
Numerous religious bodies, parliamentarians, pastors, human rights advocates, allies of the development, and other important partners swam into the talk about the authorization or criminalisation of homosexuality in the motherland.
This is what the speaker of parliament had to say;
”I am ver clear in my mind that the Parliament of Ghana will pass this bill to criminalise LGBTQ. I have gone through it and I will confrim that the Bill will be a reference point for many countries. It has gone through all the provisions of the constitutions, laws and international obligations.
I want to assure all of you that we will create a room for the Bill to be presented to parliament officially. We will refer it to the appropriate committee and take it through all the stages of processing a Bill, and it shall be passed this year.”
He further added; ”I can tell you that it is more than COVID-19, and I am happy that our beloved country, Ghana, is together in this. The president has spoken, our traditional leaders have spoken, our religious leaders have spoken together, and Ghanaians have spoken with one vice, and we don’t wan’t to do anything that has to do with LGBTQ activities. I will always do what is right because good will always triumph over evil.”
