Ghana Will Suffer To Bounce Back From COVID-19 Slumps If We Pass The LGBTQI Bill. Top NPP MP Reveals

A Member of Parliament for the Old Tafo constituency has hinted that Ghana should not pass the LGBTQI bill because the country will suffer to get some basic things that help in growing the economy of the country. According to Hon Vincent Ekow Assafuah, the minority caucus are acting like they don't know what will happen to the country if the bill is passed. He added that the minority is misleading the country on this issue.

He added the legislators should focus on creating jobs and fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Just last week, Parliament had to approve a loan of about $200 million just for the impact of Covid or if you like, buy vaccines and what have you. These are monies that are coming from a certain source, the source as we are all aware, have been championing the cause of LGBTQ for a number of years, as we are all aware. Now, if the source at a point gets jittery because the people they are trying to help are not buying into their philosophy, it is going to have dire consequences on us as a nation." The MP noted this when he was exclusively on TV3 earlier today.
