Surprisingly, the majority leader in parliament took the privilege to send an unexpected message to Alban Bagbin over the LGBT brouhaha whilst highlighting that, the speaker of parliament has no right to force members of parliament who are already against the legalization of LGBT in Ghana to do otherwise if he also believed otherwise.

If parliament is going to pass it, they would present some challenge.
