Speaker of Parliament had finally taken their stance on HOMOSEXUALITY and LESBIANISM – (Read article)
The issue of LGBTQI has become a topic for discussion on the country for some time now with every having his or her view on it. There has been some high profile personalities who took to the side of accepting the LGBTQI, saying that it is good and should be backed by law.
Meanwhile most of the citizens had kicked against the idea of the LGBTQI.
The Speaker of Parliament, Mr. Bagbin, believes that the core responsibility of the law makers is to the protection of the citizens and not to infringed on their right.
Mr. Bagbin says that the parliament would by no means introduce any law to back the "right infringing" LGBTQI. The parliament had promised to only make laws that will protect the values, traditions, culture, religion and principles of the people.
In a statement by the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, he described the issue of the LGBTQI as insignificant and therefore would not allow its implementation in any way possible.
Meanwhile during his[President] State of the Nation's Address (SONA) at parliament this year, the President said nothing regarding the issue and this made the Minority caucus fume.
The Speaker made it categorically clear when the Australian High Commissioner to Ghana paid him a visit. Mr. Bagbin stated that the country [Ghana] will never implement the LGBTQI+.
Mr Bagbin described LGBTQI+ as an abomination that will never be accepted in Ghana.
An except of High Commissioner, Gregory Andrew's remarks;
“We believe that to protect human rights sometimes our culture needs to adapt and that doesn’t mean being a different culture, it means accepting people for who they are especially when they are not causing harm to anyone else.”
“That is why on the LGBTQ+ issues, Australia will really encourage Ghana’s Parliament not to pass legislation that would discriminate the LGBTQ+ community or remove their rights or to make it illegal for people to advocate for their Human Rights.”
After he had spoken the Speaker of Parliament, Mr. Bagbin, said that “This is something that we see as an abomination, it is something that we abhor and therefore, we will continue to go according to our culture.”
