We will campaign against any party not in support of private members' bill. Apostle Eric Nyamekye.

The chairman of the church of Pentecost has made it emphatically clear that any government that is against the private member's bill Will be voted out including members of parliament.

The chairman of the church of Pentecost one of the biggest religious organizations in Ghana in the company of some heads of other sister religious organizations stormed the parliament of Ghana to present their memos in support of the private member's bill.

This comes after some group of eighteen elite Ghanaians embarked on a massive campaign to thwart the effort of the frontiers of the private member's bill.

However,the religious groups and other organizations finds this unacceptable and are now mounting fierce campaign to ensure the bill see the light of day.

It is in view of this that these various organizations have collected thousands of signatures in support of this bill.

The private member's bill was submitted to parliament earlier this year and was mainly spearheaded by the member of parliament for the Ningo prapram constituency Mr Sam George with the support of some few MPs in both sides of the house.

The bill was submitted to enact rules for the nation to ban the activities of LGBTQ in Ghana. However,some high profile personalities are not in support of the bill as a result of an obvious reason of not getting grants and loans from foreign donors.

A lot of debate are beginning to spring out as to whether the bill will get the needed support from both side of the house in order to get it passed.
