MP Is Under Serious Attack And Must Be Given A Stronger Security As Soon As Possible

It is sometimes strange how people get under attacks on pertinent issues that ordinarily, one would not expect any individual to be under any form of attack.

In Ghana today, people appear to be intolerant and have difficulty accepting the views or actions of others. I have always thought that, people in the LGBT community are the most tolerant considering how they are victimized themselves especially in societies where their acts are abhorred.


The member of Parliament for South Dayi Constituency has revealed that, he has been under constant threat by anonymous persons in the LGBTQ community as a result of his participation of the anti-LGBTQ+ bill.

He made this revelation on TV3's "New day" show when he was making his submissions. He indicated that, he has been getting calls and text messages warning him to discontinue the anti-LGBTQ bill.

" I have come under serious attack. We pray for life because the kind of messages we even get from very strange sources sources is troubling.For the Speaker of Parliament to say that; we cannot be threatened in our homes, as if he anticipated that, we would come under attacks and threats, and its happening".

He indicated that, Parliament would go ahead and interrogate the bill and as well invite memos for or against the bill from the public to take some things out or add more.

The state must put in place measures or extra security details to around the legislators who are working on the bill to avoid any unfortunate incident. The LGBTQ+ community is known to have a number of powerful individuals and threats from their camp should not be taken lightly.

Meanwhile, the Speaker of Parliament, Rt Honorable Alban Bagbin, has indicated that, Parliament would do well to pass the bill into law before the end of this year.
