‘Anti-Gay Bill will be passed, I’m very clear in my mind’- Speaker

“We cannot be threatened in our country, those threatening Members of Parliament leading the bill, the multinational…be warned, we will not be threatened, we don’t also want to be threatened in our country, I’m very clear in my mind that this bill will be passed”, Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin said.

Speaker of the eighth Parliament, Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin has promised that the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill also referred to as LGBTQ+ Bill would be passed into law this year.

Homosexuality has turned into inevitable issue on social media, radio and broadcast media in Ghana due to intense pressures to legalize homosexuality in Ghana.

Below are the 18 interlectuals battling the passage of LGBTQ+ Bill who have already petitioned Parliament to reject the bill:

Alban Bagbin is on record to have said ” LGBTQ+ is worse than Covid-19 pandemic”.

Both Bagbin and Former Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Ocquaye have openly pronounced that they won’t kowtow to intense pressures to legalise homosexuality in Ghana since it affronts the Ghanaian culture, legacy, custom and practices.

As indicated by him, the eight Parliament is battle ready to criminalise behaviours of individuals who entertain themselves with LGBTQ+ /homosexuality- gays and lesbians.

The most recent affirmed plan by the accomplished lawmaker Bagbin to pass a more harsher law on homosexuality to prescribe severe punishment comes at period at a time Ghanaians have contended that the current law on the topic doesn’t completely cover all parts of LGBTQ+ cases, requesting enactment of a new law to fill in the gaps in the current law.

In the interim, Amnesty International has enrolled its dismay about the choice of Ghana to make another law to condemn both promotion and groupings of LGBTQ+ people group in Ghana.
