More Trouble For Lawyer Akoto Ampaw As Church Leaders Present Memos To Support LGBTQ Bill

The LGBTQ bill has received backlash as Lawyer Akoto Ampaw has stated that parliament cannot step foot on people's right but it seems religious leaders are not happy with what he have said. They have line up to present memos into parliament to help pass the bill immediately.

Member of parliament for Ningo Prampram constituency, Hon Samuel Nartey George has stated that "This morning, I was pleasantly surprised by a call from the General Secretary of the Church of Pentecost. He called to inform me that a number of Church Leaders were going to be in Parliament to present memos in support of the Bill we have laid before the House. 

True to his word, they were led by the Leadership of the Church of Pentecost, The Methodist Church Ghana, The Apostolic Church Ghana, The Christian Council of Ghana, the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, the National Association of Charismatic and Christian Churches amongst other Clergymen and women to present about 15 memos with over 15,000 signatories. Yes, 15,000+ signatories!

Earlier this week, the Catholic Bishops Conference, the Assemblies of God Ghana, The Ashaiman Muslim Community and the Islamic Council of Ghana had all sent in memos backing the Bill. I can only look forward to the stakeholders engagements and the subsequent debates in Parliament as over 100 memos from across the world have come in.

We have a duty to ourselves to do that which is right, true and lawful. May we discharge ourselves diligently".

His message has given hope to the ordinary citizen in the country as they fear that lawyer Akoto Ampaw and other lawyers could use their knowledge and experience to stop the bill in parliament. Majority of Ghanaians are saying that they now trust and hope that no any lawyer can stop the bill as far as church of pentecost has join to pass the bill.
