The minister of Justice and the Attorney General of the Country has stated that individuals who opposed the LGBTQI+ should voice out the way the promoters of the activities are doing. According to him, the state has not inflict any punishment or violence against peoples who are engaged in the activities.
“Regarding the state’s position on LGBTQI, it is the laws of Ghana, which are being enforced, beyond that I am not aware of a situation whereby the state has meted out violence or the state has supported any infliction of violence against any person engaged in the activity".
He added that the exercise of the act is indeed someone's basic right and therefore, that person should be free to exercise it. He added that those who are opposing the act should voice out deeply so that their plea will be considered.
“The right to engage in LGBTQI activity which of course may be in the exercise of somebody’s fundamental human rights of free expression should also warrant that when a person has opposed the practice, that person should also be free to engage in the activity. So I deplore the situation where persons engaged in anti-LGBT activity are perceived to be backward. Once you have the right to advocate for the practice, someone also has the right to advocate against the practice".
What's your thoughts on this, per the words of the attorney general, do you think this activity will be criminalize in the country, do we have hope of abolishing gayism and lesbianism in the country?
